I have a custom plugin, that creates an admin settings page, with 3 fields:

postIDs, pageIDs and Message.

I am trying to grab the first post displayed on the homepage list and add the contents of the field "message" to the beginning of the content. I'm doing this within a plugin, and I can't work out how to hook into the homepage posts list, get the first post there, and add the "Message" before the content then return it back.

I figured it was something to do with pre_get_posts hook - but I just can't work out the correct way to do it.

Here's the full PHP of the plugin, it all works, I just can't now work out the correct way to get the first post content :(

<?php
/*

class Codeable_Fields_Plugin {
  public function __construct() {
    // Hook into the admin menu
    add_action( 'admin_menu', array( $this, 'create_plugin_settings_page' ) );
    // Add Settings and Fields
    add_action( 'admin_init', array( $this, 'setup_sections' ) );
    add_action( 'admin_init', array( $this, 'setup_fields' ) );
  }
  public function create_plugin_settings_page() {
    // Add the menu item and page
    $page_title = 'Custom HTML';
    $menu_title = 'Custom HTML';
    $capability = 'manage_options';
    $slug = 'codeable_fields';
    $callback = array( $this, 'plugin_settings_page_content' );
    $position = 100;
    add_menu_page( $page_title, $menu_title, $capability, $slug, $callback, $icon, $position );
  }

        $this->admin_notice();

    $fullcontent = $beforecontent . $content;
  }
  return $fullcontent;
}

Any help would be gratefully received!!

You can use the loop_start hook which passes the $WP_Query object by reference.

namespace StackExchange\WordPress;
class editFirstPostContent {
  public function load() {
    if( \is_admin() ) {
      return;
    }
    \add_filter( 'loop_start', [ $this, 'loopStart' ] );
  }
  public function loopStart( \WP_Query $WP_Query) {
    if( ! $WP_Query->is_main_query() ) {
      return;
    }
    if( ! isset( $WP_Query->posts[0] ) ) {
      return;
    }
    $WP_Query->posts[0]->post_content = sprintf(
      '<div>Hello World!</div>%1$s',
      $WP_Query->posts[0]->post_content
    );
  }
}
$editFirstPostContent = new editFirstPostContent();
\add_action( 'plugins_loaded', [ $editFirstPostContent, 'load' ] );

For reference, I solved it with this code:

function is_latest() {
    global $post;
    $loop = get_posts( 'numberposts=1' );
    $latest = $loop[0]->ID; 
    return ( $post->ID == $latest ) ? true : false;
}   

Then called the is_latest() function into the if statement at the end
