I’m new to WordPress and I want users to be able to retrieve a post by its ID.
For that I will be using a form in the homepage asking an ID and submitting the form will redirect user to the post’s URL.
I see that as 2 steps:
- use dynamic permalinks
- display post information based on the ID (I am using CPT UI and ACF)
For step 1, I went to wp-admin/options-permalink and set it to "simple > http://.com/?p=123". Hopefully it’s the good way, correct?
For step 2, how can I retrieve the ID from the URL and display the informations related to a particular post?
- should I edit a particular page like posts.php?
- how to edit this page? FTP or add-on?
- is there a way to do such thing from the UI directly?
