I have this code for pulling specific info from posts into my sidebar (outside the loop):
<?php $IDOutsideLoop = $post->ID; global $post; $myposts = get_posts('showposts=3&category_name=releases'); foreach($myposts as $post) : ?> <?php if(get_post_meta($post->ID, 'thumb', true)): ?> <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><img src="<?php get_custom_field('thumb', TRUE); ?>" width="155px" alt="<?php the_title(); ?>" /></a> <hr /> <?php endif; ?> <?php endforeach; ?>
This particular section pulls the post's associated thumbnail (via custom field) into the sidebar.
What I really want to try and do is link to a NextGen gallery page in the same way. The NextGen widget doesn't work with the theme for some reason, so I'd like to pull in the static page's thumbnail using a custom field instead.
Does anyone know how's best to do this, if it's possible at all?
