While developing of WordPress websites for clients or companies, sometimes we need to get the recent 10 or 5 posts from a specific category. One of my blog reader has asked this question by using my request tutorial form from FreeWebMentor.com.
Today, I am creating an article to help him as well other WordPress enthusiasts. This tutorial will help you lot, so keep your close attention in this tutorial as I am going to share how to display the recent posts from a specific category in WordPress.
Use the below simple code in your theme’s template file OR custom template file where you want to display the recent posts from a specific category. Change the category id from which category you want to display the posts. In below code
WP_Query( 'cat=3&posts_per_page=10' ), I have used
cat=3. 3 is my category id.
$catquery = new WP_Query( 'cat=3&posts_per_page=10' );
while($catquery->have_posts()) : $catquery->the_post();
<h3><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h3>
<li><?php the_content(); ?></li>
<?php endwhile; ?>
