How can i get a page ID from the Admin backend? I'm saving data into a metabox on a 'Page' post type, and I need to return that data on the page in another area. But $post->ID obviously dose not work... What will work? Thanks
Take a look this page from the codex. When creating a metabox, one of the options is a callback, which when called take a paramater for
$post, which is the same as calling
global $post ( as a side note, you can still do this in the backend Admin and get all the same variables. )
Maybe this plugin: http://www.primothemes.com/post/product/wp-show-ids-plugin/ is what you want.
are you working with a custom post type for page?
You can always use
get_post_meta() in your template to get the post type value and if its not there it doesn't matter.
** EDIT **
Correct me if I'm wrong, but it sounds like you have 2 pages and you're trying to get the information in a meta box from one and load it in to the other?
If so the best way is to get set a custom field up to store a number which would be the post ID, then in the front end call it out.
The other options is to set up a custom post type with a specific meta box set up to build a list of 'Pages' then you can select from to then pull in a meta value associated with it.
