Using page content stored in Wordpress in another PHP/HTML page : How to

Sometimes I’ve needed to have page content stored in Wordpress so the users/client can easily edit the html content but display it in another non-Wordpress php/html website

Below is a simple way to grab Wordpress content and add it to your site

page.php

<?php
 
    require( 'wp/wp-load.php' );
    require( 'wp-content.php' );
 
?>
 
<!-- add all you html here etc.. -->
<h2>
    <?php
       //print the page title using the Wordpress page ID
       echo get_the_title('190');
    ?>
</h2>
 
    <?php 
       //print the page content using the Wordpress page ID
       echo getPageContent('190');
    ?>

wp-content.php

<?php
 
if(!function_exists('getPageContent'))
    {
        function getPageContent($pageId)
        {
            if(!is_numeric($pageId))
            {
                return;
            }
            global $wpdb;
            $sql_query = 'SELECT DISTINCT * FROM ' . $wpdb->posts .
            ' WHERE ' . $wpdb->posts . '.ID=' . $pageId;
            $posts = $wpdb->get_results($sql_query);
            if(!empty($posts))
            {
                foreach($posts as $post)
                {
                    return $post->post_content;
                }
            }
        }
    }
 
?>

Also install the disable auto format plugin to disable the way wordpress formats stored html
