I've got a page (page, not post) that near the bottom of the page I want to get the most recent 15 posts from a set of categories. I'm new to doing this and thought I was doing it correctly. The div (.article-item) repeats out 15 times as expected, but none of the specific post info is coming through.
<?php $catIDs = array(2,4,5,6,7,16); $args = array( 'numberposts' => 15, 'category__in' => $catIDs, 'orderby' => 'post_date', 'order' => 'DESC', 'post_status' => 'publish' ); $posts_array = get_posts( $args ); ?> <div class="left-side"> <div class="article-grid group"> <?php foreach ($posts_array as $postd): ?> <div class="col2 article-item <?php echo $postd->name; ?>-article"> <div class="article-item-content"> <p> <span class="category"> <?php echo $postd->name; ?>: </span> 00/00/00 </p> <h2><?php echo the_title(); ?></h2> <div class="article-link"> <a href="<?php get_the_permalink(); ?>">READ MORE</a> </div> </div> </div><!-- /.article-item --> <?php endforeach; ?> </div><!-- /.article-grid -->
As you can see, I've tried grabbing things off of the array (
postd->name;) as well as the
get_the_whatever type functions. I'm think it has to do with the fact that I'm in a page template, rather than a post/post template, but am a little over my head. Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated.
