    Hi Experts,

    I am new to WordPress and I have a problem which might be very basic!

    I wish to print the contents of the posts (say post ID 1,2,3 & 4) in a single post. How do I do that?

    Also the amount of the content that I need to print from posts (1,2,3 & 4) cannot be defined by number of characters. Can it be defined as up to the post dividing line? (or maybe I can put a code in HTML while writing the post and only up to that will be printed)

    Any ideas any one?
    Any plugin or programming concept?

    Sounds pretty simple for an experienced developer. Have you considered hiring someone?

    Hi Andrew,

    No. I haven’t thought about hiring any one at this moment.

    Hi All,

    I was in fact thinking about for a long time and I guess this might just as well help me to solve my problem.

    Is there any shortcode by which I can show the excerpts of a post ID in another post?

    How is this possible?
    Also need to control the number of characters in the excerpt.

    Please help.

    You should be able to do this by using a custom query & Loop – suppressing the individual post titles by simply not outputting them in the Loop. You could use the <!--more--> tag in each post’s content to mark the cutoff point for each post and then suppress the default “Read more” by using the_content('', false,'') instead of the_content().

    <?
    ob_start();
    the_ID();
    $ID=ob_get_clean();
    $ID;
    #if ($ID==2 || $ID==3 || $ID==4 || $ID==5) {
    the_content()
    } else {
    echo "Show Nothing";
    }
    ?>

    hope this helps

    paste that into your theme page template 🙂
