    Hi guys,

    sorry for the multiple questions 🙂

    I would like to showcase TWO different posts on my welcome page

    in my home.php I placed the query_posts tag
    but i get only ONE post
    here is the tag i am using:

    <?php
    query_posts(‘p=21,43’);
    ?>

    any suggestions how i get both post id=21, and below it post id=43 ?

    Thank you !

  • I don’t believe you can use query_posts() for that (mutliple posts), but I’m not sure.

    Just use this instead:

    $posts = $wpdb->get_results("SELECT * FROM $wpdb->posts WHERE ID='21' OR ID='43'");

    Thanks

    tried, but got jibrish

    i used the code as follows:

    <?php get_header(); ?>
    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>
    <?php
    $posts = $wpdb->get_results(“SELECT * FROM $wpdb->posts WHERE ID=’21’ OR ID=’43′”);
    ?>

    this is not on my index page but home.php
    what am i doing wrong ?

    anyone ?

    I had this very same problem … it was fixed very easily … i went through disabling all my plugins one by one .. the 3rd plugin i disabled fixed it .. it was my Adhesive plugin that was messing it up.
    http://www.redalt.com/downloads/ was where it was from .. and now doesn’t seem to be kept up to date .. so if i need sticky posts i won’t be using it any more !

    I have the same error on the index page at http://www.amyloo.com/clipoftheweek

    Like one of the first posters in this thread, it happened after I added a query_post — in my case to exclude a particular category of posts from the index.

    Like the just-previous poster, I isolated the troublemaker. It’s the theme; when I revert to the basic theme, the error goes away. Problem is the thememaker says my question is beyond his scope of support http://forums.wpthemes.info/comments.php?DiscussionID=126/

    So now what? I’ll likely end up starting over with a new theme based on the default rather than modifying a theme that doesn’t look anything like what I ended up with anyway! But for a quick fix, I thought it might be worth asking if anybody has any ideas. Thanks.
