    Hello World!

    I got three divs.. inside each div I want last post, second last post and then third last post.


    <div id="box1">last post</div>
    <div id="box2">second last post</div>
    <div id="box3">third last post</div>

    I want to get the title and an image from that post. I want to code it my self, and not use a plugin for it. I want it to dynamically update it self..

    I'm not too familiar with php, yet. So go easy on me.

    I also want it to be clickable and take the visitors to the post. actually, I need the boxes to take the visitor to three specific places on the same page, smoothly. (Dont mind the js, I'll deal with that later).

    I've been googling a bit, but I really dont know where to look or what to look for. So a little point in the right direction and some advice would be VERY helpful!

    I want to get the title and an image from that post.

    Is that the featured image (Post Thumbnail) you want or the first image in the post?

    try it with a query to a loop:


    $the_query = new WP_Query( 'posts_per_page=3');
    while ( $the_query->have_posts() ) : $the_query->the_post();
    <div id="box<?php echo $the_query->current_post+1; ?>">
    if ( has_post_thumbnail($post->ID) ) { // check if the post has a Post Thumbnail assigned to it.
    <?php the_title(); ?>
    <?php endwhile; ?>
