I'm creating a site similar to http://thegreatdiscontent.com/ in that there's a bunch of posts on the site, and only one post gets shown per page.
I want to add a counter that says something like: "Issue #210" at the top of each post, as they have done with http://alistapart.com/. This would increment with each new post.
I've seen it out there to use
wp_query->current_post, but that only works when you run through a loop. I'm only showing one post per page, so
wp_query always returns 0.
Any ideas how I can make my posts increment?
