Support » Fixing WordPress » how can I make my static content editable from dashboard

  • Resolved preitybansal


    Hi, I am customizing a theme and have created a division on homepage which will hold some static content. The content at present time is written in php file inside that division. But I want that content to be editable form wp-dashboard either through a post or a custom field.
    Any idea how to achieve this.

    Thank you

    Perhaps you need to review creating a static front page?



    I tried something like this

    $my_id = 33;
    $post_id_1 = get_post($my_id);
    $content = $post_id_1->post_content;
    echo $content;

    It works perfectly fine but now as it is a post it appears with other posts also.
    I want to exclude it from appearing anywhere else.
    I know using wp_query but dont know the exact code where to write in index.php.

    Any help?

    Two simple options I can think of…

    You can register a new sidebar (widget area) and place it there, then just use a text widget in that area to fill in what you want has an overview of that concept

    Or, you can run a loop there, and have it query one specific page/post which you continually edit with whatever you want in that area

    EDIT — You guys were quicker.. carry on!
