Okay, I know this has been answered elsewhere, so a link is as good as an answer. (searched, but I did not find.)
I need to get a single post by ID, which is a variable.
Can I use:
It's a bit fiddly..I'm using this in a popup called slideshow.php.
everything works but the part above, but fyi, what I'm trying to do is post the postid to slideshow.php (not index.php)-- run the loop, putting the get_the_content into a variable.
then i run a bunch of regex thingies to pull out imagenames and captions, then makes a beautiful slideshow.
