Wordpress custom query for getting information outside of The Loop
<?
// This is a sub query for pulling data from outside of the loop..
// However, we need to preserve the original $wp_query if this is inside an existing loop.
// If this is the last query, then you can ditch it.
$temp = $wp_query;
$wp_query = null;
$wp_query = new WP_Query();
$wp_query->query('your-custom-query');
while ($wp_query->have_posts()) : $wp_query->the_post();
endwhile;
// if this is going before the main loop,
// we need to set the query back to the original.
// if not, ditch it.
$wp_query = $temp;
