Get Posts Outside Loop

Snippets by IsItWP

Are you looking for a way to display posts outside the loop? While there’s probably a plugin for this, we have created a quick code snippet that you can use to add feed links to header in WordPress.


All you have to do is add this code to your theme’s index.php file:

          $feature_posts = get_posts('numberposts=10&orderby=post_name');

          foreach($feature_posts as $post) : setup_postdata($post);
          <? the_title(); ?> 
          <? the_content(); ?>


Note: If this is your first time adding code snippets in WordPress, then please refer to our guide on how to properly add code snippets in WordPress, so you don’t accidentally break your site.
