Dual Loops? Having trouble with categories hackery

  • Hi all,

    I’ve tried helping myself for the last 2 hours or so, but am not making any real progress.

    1. SUCCESS: I am trying to display 1 category of posts only in my main content area. I got this working via the Codex examples. I am doing this just before The Loop:

    <?php
       if (is_home()) {
          query_posts("category_name=Announcements");
       }
    ?>

    2. FAILURE: I am trying to display 1 (different than above) category of posts in my sidebar (it’s big). I have tried adding another “Loop” to my sidebar.php, but strange things are happening. What is the proper way to do this?

  • Holy cow this forum moves fast.

    I figured this out, and it was esoteric and related to my specific code, so explaining the solution is not really worth much.

    Well, it might be…. you never know. But in any case, please mark this resolved, thanks!
