is there a way I can retrieve the first and second post in wordpress...

I have tried using get_post() but with that I have to put in a id. What if I don't know the posts id?

  • How do you define "first and second"? Earliest by date posted? – Rarst Sep 28 '12 at 14:58

Have you tried using WP_Query()?

$query = new WP_Query( 'posts_per_page=2' );

You can also split it into two quieries if you must, with an offset:

$query = new WP_Query( 'posts_per_page' => 1 ) ); // First post
$query = new WP_Query( 'posts_per_page' => 1, 'offset=1' ) ); // Second post
