thank you for taking the time to review this.
I am calling a new WP_Query with the following arguments:
$args = array( 'post_type' => 'post', 'post_status' => 'publish', 'post__not_in' => array($featured_post_ID), 'category_name' => 'blog', 'offset' => $offset, 'posts_per_page' => 3, 'orderby' => 'post-date', 'order' => 'DESC', );
I know that past issues have been caused by passing a numeric post ID as a variable instead of string; to get around that I am using the following variable definition for
$featured_post_ID = '"'.$post_ID.'"';
When I run this query, it outputs the post I am trying to exclude.
Here is a Transcript of output of the WP_Query to save space. Looks like
post__not_in is recognized in the query, but has no effect on the output.
Can anyone advise why this might be happening, or how to fix it?
