    Hello everyone, wondered if someone could shed some light on this.

    I have referenced the page for the function get_posts() in order to be able to grab the list of posts from a particular category (in this case ‘news’) but for some reason it’s returning a random post in a completely different category.

    My code is as follows:

    <?php
     global $blog;
     $myarticles = get_posts('numberposts=3&offset=0&category_name=news');
     foreach($myarticles as $article) :
     ?>
       <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a><br />
    	<?php the_date(); ?><br />
    
     <?php endforeach; ?>

    Here I am grabbing all the News Articles I have written and placing the most recent three on the page, but it’s not doing that – instead it’s putting the title of one random post from my database. Can’t understand why – is there something I’m missing?

    Thanks in advance for any help.
    Michael
