Ok so I have this code to Query posts from a certain ID:


     $valid_post_types = array ('agencies','pro-awards-winners','marcawards','topshops');

    $args = array(
       'post_type' => $valid_post_types,
       'post_status' => 'publish',
       'pagename' => 210639,
       'posts_per_page' => -1       

  $query = new WP_Query( $args );
  // The Query
  query_posts( $args );

  //The Loop
  while ( have_posts() ) : the_post();
 echo '
 echo '</li>';

// Reset Query

The posts aren't displaying of course...Is there something I'm doing wrong?

  • There are a number of errors there and it would be very helpful to know exactly what you want to achieve in order to help you. If you are trying to get a single post by ID for example, then the pagename parameter and the array of post types are irrelevant. – Andy Macaulay-Brook Aug 8 '16 at 21:39
  • Isn't this your question from wordpress.stackexchange.com/questions/233942/… ? – Andy Macaulay-Brook Aug 8 '16 at 21:41
  • Hi I'm looking to get a page ID that displays those post types on it's page – MikeL5799 Aug 8 '16 at 21:41
  • Yeah I'm trying to do it a different way this time – MikeL5799 Aug 8 '16 at 21:43
  • well if you already know the pagename why would you need the ID? – bynicolas Aug 8 '16 at 23:10

$args = array(
    'post_type' => 'post',  //Specifying the type of posts
    'cat'=> 1,    //Selecting post category by ID to show
    'posts_per_page' => 4,  //No. of posts to show      
    'paged' => $paged       //For pagination
//You dont need to use query_posts( $args ); since you are using wp_query
$query = new WP_Query( $args ); 

Use while loop like this

while ( $query->have_posts() ) : $query->the_post();   

Instead of this

while ( have_posts() ) : the_post();    

In case if you don't know where to find post ID, Read this article to know about post ID

  • Thanks, buit I'm trying to query the posts on a specific page and not by category ID – MikeL5799 Aug 9 '16 at 14:07
  • I am little confused about your question, If you can elaborate a little more that what exactly you want to achieve then I might help you. – Rishabh Aug 11 '16 at 4:15

I solved the problem by posting adding this: $list_args2 = array( "post_type" => "any", "post__in" => get_post_meta( 210639, 'storylist', true), "orderby" => "post__in", 'post_status' => 'publish' );
