Hi I am using the follow piece of code display 4 posts on a specific page. But for some reason only the first post id declared in the array is being displayed. So just post id 573 gets posted on the page.

What am I missing?

Thanks

     <div class="thursday">
       <?php $thePostIdArrayT = array('573','537','575','577'); ?>
        <?php $limit = 4 ?>
         <?php if (have_posts()) : ?>
         <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); $counter++; ?>
          <?php if ( $counter < $limit + 1 ): ?>
          <div class="post" id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>">
         <?php $post_id = $thePostIdArrayT[$counter-1]; ?>
         <?php $queried_post = get_post($post_id); ?>
         <h2><?php echo $queried_post->post_title; ?></h2>
		  <?php echo $queried_post->post_content; ?>
         </div>
         <?php endif; ?>
         <?php endwhile; ?>
          <?php endif; ?>
		<a href="/specials/">read more..</a>
     </div>

take a look at this, query the posts directly
<?php
$args=array(
  'posts__in' => array(5,12,2,14,7),
  'post_type' => 'post',
  'post_status' => 'publish',
  'caller_get_posts'=> 1
);
$my_query = null;
$my_query = new WP_Query($args);
if( $my_query->have_posts() ) {
  echo 'List of Posts';
  while ($my_query->have_posts()) : $my_query->the_post(); ?>
    <p><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title_attribute(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></p>
    <?php
  endwhile;
}
wp_reset_query();  // Restore global post data stomped by the_post().
?>

or using query_posts
put this right above a standard loop

<?php 
query_posts( 'post__in' => array('573','537','575','577') );
 ?>
