My page (outside the wordpress install) begins something like this:
global $wpdb, $wp_query; define('WP_USE_THEMES', false); include_once 'word/wp-blog-header.php'; $args = array( 'posts_per_page' => 10, 'post_type' => 'post' ); $queryObject = new WP_Query($args);
I start the loop like so:
<?php while (have_posts()): the_post(); ?>
In the loop I call this:
But nothing is returned.
(Where 4 is the id of an attachment) also returns nothing.
<?php the_content(); ?>
echoes the post content, minus the gallery - which also doesn't get rendered, but the shortcode is removed.
Inside wordpress everything works fine, outside it seems that attachments are simply ignored. Why does this happen? Is there a workaround? Is there something wrong with my query?
I found an alternative solution to my original problem - using a subdirectory, but I still feel this is a valid question. The original is here:
I'm using the wordpress engine as a CMS for a website that can't be integrated into wordpress right now because of time constraints (but will be eventually), so I need to get hold of things like post thumbnails outside of the wordpress directory. I'm using the following to set up my loop:
global $wpdb, $wp_query; define('WP_USE_THEMES', false); include_once 'word/wp-blog-header.php'; $args = array( 'posts_per_page' => 10, 'post_type' => 'leather_swatch' ); $loop = new WP_Query($args); if ($loop->have_posts()) : while ($loop->have_posts()) : $loop->the_post();
However, in index.php this works, but returns nothing in my external loop:
$thumb = get_post_thumbnail_id($post->ID); echo '<img src="'.wp_get_attachment_url($thumb).'" />';
What I find really odd is that
returns a post object inside the wordpress directory, but nothing in my custom loop - it doesn't recognise attachments. However I can still print out the content of my post type in the custom loop using the standard the_content() function.
Can anyone illuminate what's going on/how I might fix this? I don't really want to use custom meta data to replicate standard functionality.
