I'm making a template for one of my pages.
I want to display the latest post in a specific category on this page.
I found a code that works on the index-page. If I replace the regular loop with the code below, it works great with the latest post.
<?php $wp_query->is_single = true; ?> <?php $post_count = 0; ?> <?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?> <?php if ($post_count == 0) : ?> <h2><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2> <?php the_content(''); ?> <?php $post_count++; ?> <?php endif; ?> <?php endwhile; endif; ?>
However it doesn't work if I make a template of it and use it on one of the pages.
So I was wondering how to make this work on an other page than the index/home. And how to make it work on a specific post-category.
