I have my news in posts and I am trying to display the two latest news articles (posts) on my main page. I've got that solved by getting the title using
the_title() and getting a little bit of the text using
I want to show a more... link that takes you to the post. However, some of the news articles that I am posting have some text in the post body that's a link, how do I only get the link within the body of a post so that my more... link takes your there directly?
For example, sometimes we will link to news articles in PDFs that are on another server.
I'm using the following code.
<?php query_posts('category_name=news2011'); ?> <?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?> <?php /* the_ID(); */ ?> <?php /* the_date('F Y'); */ ?> <ol class="news"> <strong><p><?php the_title()?></p></strong> <li><?php the_content(); ?></li> </ol> <?php endwhile; endif; ?>
