I recently had to display some content on my blog, only when my blog is displaying a single article or a single post. The content does not appear on the home page or any other page. Since my blog is powered by WordPress, there are several WordPress functions that I can use to detect if the current page is a single post, a home page or a WordPress Page, e.g. the About page. Here’s the code:
<?php if(is_single()) : ?> My single post content goes here! <?php endif; ?>
<?php if(is_home()) : ?> My home page content goes here! <?php endif; ?>
<?php if(is_page()) : ?> My Page content goes here! <?php endif; ?>
The content located between the if and endif statements will be displayed only if the conditional is true. You can use this code to customize the content of your blog. You can place this code in your WordPress theme files such as index.php, home.php, single.php, and page.php.
