Is there a way to get the content from another outside the loop? The ID is 302 and I need to display the content of that on another page.

You can use get_page() to return the $post object of a static page:

$page_id = 302;
$page_object = get_page( $page_id );
echo $page_object->post_content;

Edit

Similarly, you can use get_post() to return the $post object of a post:

$post_id = 302;
$post_object = get_post( $post_id );
echo $post_object->post_content;

Do shortcodes still work when using this? –  Tim Feb 20 '14 at 21:35
    
Just found out it doesn't. Use setup_postdata( $post ); first, after that, you can use the_content(); –  Tim Feb 20 '14 at 21:39

If your content include shortcodes, you should use:

$post_id = 22;        
$post_object = get_post( $post_id );        
echo do_shortcode( $post_object->post_content );

For completeness, building on Tim's comment above and inspired by Stephen Harris's article, the solution that enables use of the_content() is:

$post_id = 302;
global $post;
$post = &get_post($post_id);
setup_postdata( $post );
the_content();
wp_reset_postdata( $post );

And hence filters get applied (paragraphs will be inserted etc.) and shortcodes work.

to get the content of the post outside the loop you can write something like this

global $post;
$content = $post->post_content;

if ( !empty( $content ) ) :
    echo $content;
endif;

use wp_reset_query(); it will work..

<?php query_posts( 'post_type=posttype&p=302' ); 
    if( have_posts() ) : while( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>
        <?php the_content(); ?>
    <?php endwhile; endif; 
wp_reset_query();
?>

posttype can be "post" , "page" or your custom post type. Here p=302 is your post id.. Hope it will work.

Never use query_posts unless you need to break page functionalities. Always use WP_Query or get_posts for custom queries :-) –  Pieter Goosen Apr 4 at 6:55
    
yes.. you are right.. It can Wp_Query as well.. same result found.. –  user2611955 Apr 5 at 19:23

you can put content in a category X and use query_post before while like this :

    <?php query_posts('cat=X&showposts=1'); ?>
    <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
          <?= get_the_content(); ?>
    <?php endwhile; ?>
