How to get Last Post in WordPress

Here I come with quick but useful tips in WordPress.Recently I have upgraded my blog theme and I wanted to make some changes on the last post found in the loop on the last page.So I thought is it quite difficult to get the last post?

No,It’s not difficult and specifically in WordPress if you have good knowledge of WordPress core variables and functions so simply place explained code in below.

Let’s have a look into the condition which compares the total number of posts to the current post number:

Here, Wp_query property is used to count the number of posts and $wp_query->current_post gives us the current loop number.$wp_query->post_count will give a count of posts.

That’s it.It is so simple. Now you can make layout changes for the last record of the loop.
