post content not showing in Wordpress.

My page content is not showing on my page as it is clashing with a plugin i have installed.

I have a upcoming events widget that i want to display on my sidebar, and it works fine, but then my page post does not show. I have registered the plugin, and have it as sidebar_Events.php included in my sidebar. If i take it out the page content displays correctly, but if it leave it in, then no page content.  How can i work round this? as i definitely need the upcoming events to be displayed aswell.

Here is the code that displays my content, and i have attached the upcoming_events.php plugin. No links as i am developing this site on wamp locally.

<?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
                    <?php the_content('<p class="serif">Read the rest of this page &raquo;</p>'); ?>
            <?php wp_link_pages(array('before' => '<p><strong>Pages:</strong> ', 'after' => '</p>', 'next_or_number' => 'number')); ?>
            <?php endwhile; endif; ?>

I am using 3.0.

The Plugin works fine,  shows up in my sidebar, but then my page content is blank.  If i remove the included plugin, the content appears again.

you have to activate the plugin(in the admin panel) and after that put this code:
 upcoming_widget(); 

Open in new window

in your sidebar.php

i have tested this in a wp 3.0.1 and its working

hi,

that plugin uses query_posts, which sets what content is in the_loop... so if you call it before displaying your page, it is replacing the posts that should be used for the page with the posts of the upcoming events, meaning you would need to place the code that displays your sidebar after your code that displays your post, or grab your post id first and then do query_posts again with that saved ID to get your original post back in the_loop after displaying the sidebar.

I am guessing this is the case, as you didn't supply your entire single.php I can't be sure, but based on what you are saying and how it seems that plugin functions it makes sense to me. I have included what I think should work for you in the code below, but I am unfortunately unable to test it right now. So top part of the following code goes directly above wherever you call your sidebar, and then right after your call to sidebar call queryposts again
<?php 

if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post();

$posttodisplay = get_the_ID();

endwhile;endif;



get_sidebar();



query_posts("p=$posttodisplay");

?>o 

<?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>

                    <?php the_content('<p class="serif">Read the rest of this page &raquo;</p>'); ?>

            <?php wp_link_pages(array('before' => '<p><strong>Pages:</strong> ', 'after' => '</p>', 'next_or_number' => 'number')); ?>

            <?php endwhile; endif; ?>

Sorry, Not working.  I forgot to post my pages before, so here are  the pages in question.  If i leave out
<?php include 'sidebar_Events.php' ; ?>

Open in new window

from my sidebar, then the main content on my page is displayed. If i Leave it in, then the post disapears, but the Events appears.

Arts-For-Life-sidebar1.php  partnersPage.php sidebar-Events.php functions.php Arts-For-Life-Header.php

Hi,

in partnersPage.php

change

 <?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
<?php the_content('<p class="serif">Read the rest of this page &raquo;</p>'); ?>

to

 <?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
 <?php echo(get_the_ID());?>
 <?php the_content('<p class="serif">Read the rest of this page &raquo;</p>'); ?>

and see if it outputs the id of the post(s) it has

is there absolutely nothing output? If nothing is being output then as I mentioned before it seems like the plugin is causing the the_loop to get messed up.

try putting
include 'Arts_For_Life_sidebar1.php';

right before:
include 'Arts_For_Life_footer.php';

I realize it will mess up the display of the page, but I am thinking it should display the post and the sidebar info, if it is the sidebar code messing up the loop.

I included the sidebar just before the footer.

I used your code above, and it displays the page ID, and then Post content.  The sidebar moves down the screen.

I used my code, with the sidebar just before the footer, and that displays the post content with the sidebar moving down the screen.    So now we know that is the problem, how can i get my sidebar back up the page.

Here are 2 screen shots showing the output.  Needed to zoom out to get most of screen captured. Top one is with your code, showing the outputted page ID, and Post Content.

in partnersPage.php I would replace

<?php
include 'Arts_For_Life_Header.php';
include 'Arts_For_Life_sidebar1.php';
?>

with the snippet below. Now Is the page you have screenshots of above considered a "page" or a "post" in wordpress?

You use query_posts differently depending so it would either be

//POST
query_posts("p=" . $posttodisplay);
or
//PAGE
query_posts("page_id=" . $posttodisplay);


I know I mentioned doing this before, but I feel like it has to work...

<?php

if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post();

$posttodisplay = get_the_ID();

endwhile;endif;



include 'Arts_For_Life_Header.php';

include 'Arts_For_Life_sidebar1.php';



query_posts("p=" . $posttodisplay);

?>
