could you please help me to correct the code. I need to display related posts based on the PAGE TITLE keywords, so when page (not post) loads it shows title+content and related block of posts underneath.

I have this code but it displays the weird results.

    $mypostids = $wpdb->get_col("select ID from $wpdb->posts where post_title LIKE '".$str."%' ");

    $args = array(
        'post__in'=> $mypageids,

$the_query = new WP_Query( $args );
if ( $the_query->have_posts() ) {
    while ( $the_query->have_posts() ) {
  • Define 'weird'. Also, this is sort of what the categories/taxonomies are for. You could categorize your posts and then within a page you could link a taxonomy to each page using a custom field. Then just run a standard query using that custom field. And also, shouldn't you have a % before and after the $str? Like so LIKE '%".$str."%'. Jan 27 at 22:23
