Support » Themes and Templates » Show 1 post followed by titles

  • I have a couple of questions.

    i have created a new category page (category-3.php) to be different. on this page i want the newest post from said category to show the post title as well as the content. below that i want only the post titles and meta data showing for the other posts in the category. what i’m having trouble with is limiting the top so that only 1 post shows in full. then getting my theme to call up all the posts in the category after in their title view.

    it should look something like this

    content for post 1
    april 0, 00

    april 0, 00
    april 0, 00
    april 0, 00

    also, i don’t mind if the newest post shows up again in the bottom section.
    hope that makes sense, if it doesn’t let me know

    thanks in advance.

  • Hi

    change the_content in your code from something like this
    <?php the_content('Read the rest of this entry &raquo;'); ?>

    to something like this
    `<?php if ($wp_query->current_post == 0) {
    the_content(‘Read the rest of this entry »’);

    that should only display the content on the 1st post

    hey sorry i’m really new to the wordpress structure. everytime i try adding that my page just loads white. this is the part of my custom category page that needs to be edited. the way i have it right now loads the post titles perfect but i can’t get the newest post to load at the top.

    <?php if(have_posts()) : ?><?php while(have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    			<div class="post" id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>">
    				<h2><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" title="<?php the_title() ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>
    				<div class="entry">
    					<?php the_content(); ?>
    					<p class="postmetadata">
    Posted on: <strong><?php the_time("l F dS Y") ?>, <?php the_time() ?></strong><br />
    <?php _e('Filed under:'); ?> <strong><?php the_category(', ') ?></strong> <?php _e('by'); ?> <strong><?php  the_author(); ?></strong><br />
    <?php comments_popup_link('No Comments »', '1 Comment »', '% Comments »'); ?> <?php edit_post_link('Edit', ' | ', ''); ?>
    		<?php endwhile; ?>
    				<div class="navigation">
    						<?php posts_nav_link(); ?>
    		<?php else : ?>
    				<div class="post">
    						<h2><?php_e('Not Found') ?></h2>
    		<?php endif; ?>

    i guess while i’m asking to.. is there anyway to make the next post/previous post links stay within the same category?
