I really need some professional coders on this one. I had this problem
before, but no one really could help before. Here's what I'm trying to
I'm making a theme currently, where ONE POST is calling ONE POST from
ONE category. This post sits right under the header logo, then below
that post is the navigation menu, then below the navigation menu are the
rest of the posts...
The ONE post at the top is going to be like a "special announcement" or
"site news" type of post only. It only needs ONE post at a time up
there. Then of course, the rest of the posts below that upper post...
are going to be the normal posts... The problem I had before is... when
using query_posts... like this example below here:
<?php query_posts('showposts=1&cat=3') ?>
To display the SINGLE post from a SINGLE category... then used this one
for the remaining category posts...
<?php query_posts('cat=1,2,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,13,17,18,19,20,') ?>
It kills on the page load times, PLUS... when trying to click the "<
previous entries" example: (http://localhost/?paged=2) all those posts
are the SAME posts as on the index page... Is there a way around this
type of issue or?
I was wondering if GET_POSTS would do what I wanted... like, get_post =
(from this category only, only one) some how... then some how exclude
those posts for the rest of the others in the lower section below... Any
one with any helpful tips, ideas, code? Thanks in advance...
