I'm trying to achieve a similar effect to get_page($id), but with the current post acting as the argument for get_post(). Something like this pseudocode: get_post($this=>ID); .

Seems simple, but I can't find the it in the docs.

You can simply call get_post(), it returns the current post if no ID is specified.

get_the_ID() actually does the same.


Found it here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/4893435/getting-the-wordpress-post-id-of-current-post

$id = get_the_ID();
