  • How the heck does one retrieve the current page ID?? I would like to use it in the body tag in my header to set an ID for current menu item since I cannot get that to work for all the blogs subpages..

  • Well I don’t think that will get what I’m trying to do here.. Im trying to get the main menu to highlight when going into the comments on a post.. Say I have a page named blog that shows all posts.. That page is now the current_page_item and works great.. The problem Im trying to solve is when you click to view the comments on a particular post.. The main blog link is no longer the current_page_item and I would like it to be.. Is there a possibilitly to get this to work.. I’m pretty stuck now..

    Would anybody know how to do the following?? I’m trying to get the actual page id and not the post id..

    This is what works for the post id:

    echo $post->ID;

    I’m trying to get something like this to work:

    echo $page->ID;

    Any ideas out there??

    Actually I believe it is just $post->ID, if you dig into the docs you’ll discover that the post table is used to store posts, pages, and attachments.

    And you can also use the template tag the_ID() instead.

    See the docs:

    You might also find these conditional tags helpful:
