    How do I identify a page in Wordpress?

    Hey gang,

    I'm customizing wordpress and I created stated pages.

    One page I created is called blog, to be seen as a subpage
    of the website.

    FOr this page I want to create a different header and
    in my template, I want to identify that this is the page
    I'm using for my blog (ie posts page).

    How can i identify this page as my blog page? (posts page)?

    Incidentally, the $post->post_name is giving me the slug "hello-world"
    for the first post ... what I really want to know is that the page is
    my blog page.

    Understand my question? Got an answer?

    (thanks!!!!!)

    Code:
    if ( is_page('page-name') ) {
    
    }

    Couldn't you just use $_SERVER['SCRIPT_URI'] and say if that == (your site url) then do whatever you need to do? (I THINK thats how you check the current URL via PHP?

    Brad, that's a good idea, except there's a little more to the story...

    What I did was create a page and designated that page as the blog and as a result the title of the page is the title of the first post in the blog which will change over time.

    What I want to do is identify this page as the blog and change the header for this page.

    So what I want to do is to be able to identify this page as the blog page within the php.

    Any ideas?

    thanks!!!

    Well, the "page slug" actually stays the same on the blog page, perhaps i can recognize this ...

    any idea offhand what the variable that holds the page slug name is?

    For what it's worth, what i did was to use

    if ( ! (is_page) )

    to help me identify if the page "is a blog page", i did a check to
    see if it "isn't a static page" which most of my site is.


    I bet it's just confusing to anyone

    Thanks for the support!

    Check out

    Look for page specific tags.

    Cheers,
