WordPress PHP Query

Postby SkyNetworks » Mon May 26, 2014 4:03 pm

Hi Everybody.

Apologies if I've not posted this in the correct forum, but am hoping somebody can help me please.

The following line of WordPress code displays the ‘Title’ of my individual blog posts in the Sidebar of my website.

<a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php get_the_title() ? the_title() : the_ID(); ?></a>

Can somebody please help me tweak it so it displays both the ‘Title’ and ‘Subtitle’ of each post please? So far I’ve tried adding the ‘Subtitle’ at the end, like this:

<a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php get_the_title() ? the_title() : the_ID(); ?><span class="subtitle"><?php the_subtitle(); ?></span></a>

This works in the sense that both the ‘Title’ and ‘Subtitle’ are displayed (both of which are styled in slightly different colours using a separate CSS file), but while the ‘Title’ changes font colour on mouse-hover, the ‘Subtitle’ doesn’t (I’m guessing because I’ve wrapped it in a span class). What I’m really hoping to do is have the ‘Title’ displayed in one colour and the ‘Subtitle’ in a slightly different colour, but for both ‘Title’ and ‘Subtitle’ to change to the same colour when the mouse hovers over either one of them. I’m still building my site, but you can see the Sidebar as it stands, here http://www.retelevise.com.

I don’t know if this is even possible and have not had any feedback on the WordPress support forum, so was really hoping one of the PHP experts here might be able to help me please? Bear in mind I'm a complete PHP novice.
