Changing post shown in post loop

4 posts in this topic

I am using a post loop section to display a contact page but I am having an issue when I use 2 post loops.  It seems that the post loop section doesnt let me change what post is showing in the loop and only shows the same post.  I go to edit post and it takes me to the same page.  Any way to change which post shows in the post loop section?

Not quite sure what you're trying to do. The Content/PostLoop section shows your Posts when you're on a Post or blog page, it also shows your Pages content when viewing a page.

So you can't use the PostLoop section to display a Post when added to a Page, as it will only show your Pages content. If you want to display your Posts, you will want to either use a PostLoop such as Nicks Any Loop or use a Plugin such as Mini Loop or Special Recent Posts.
