Support » Fixing WordPress » Show latest sub-page under page

  • Hi

    I have a new site under development where the front page currently shows a Page with a list of child Sub-Pages. I am attempting to have this page show the content of the most recently created Sub Page, instead of what it’s currently showing.

    I’ve tried the following:

      $how_many=1; //How many posts do you want to show
      require_once('wp-config.php'); // Change this for your path to wp-config.php file ?>
        $news=$wpdb->get_results("SELECT * FROM $wpdb->posts WHERE <code>post_parent</code>=\"3\" ORDER BY id DESC LIMIT $how_many");
        foreach($news as $np){
          printf ("<h1>%s</h1>%s", $np->post_title, $np->post_content);

    This gives me what I want but what is returned is just plain text (with no formatting) unlike what I see if I visit the page in question (<p> tags etc).

    I don’t really want to be creating my own query strings so could someone point me in the direction of an already created function that may solve my problem?

    Thanks in advance
