In my page.php template, I want to show the post for the current page in one column and in a second column, I want to show several articles from a selected category. But I only want the part of the article before the more link.
No matter what I try, the second loop always posts the full article
<?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
<h1><?php the_title(); ?></h1>
<?php the_content(); ?>
<?php endwhile; else: ?>
<p><?php _e('Sorry, no posts matched your criteria.'); ?></p>
<?php endif; ?>
<?php query_posts('category_name=home&showposts=5&order=ASC'); ?>
<?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
<h3><?php the_title(); ?></h3>
<?php the_content(__(" more...")); ?>
<?php endwhile; ?>
Again, the problem with the second loop is that I always get the full post. I want just the post up to the more link.
And I have checked, each post in that category has a more link.
