adding 'posts_per_page' breaks my site.

When I add 'posts_per_page' to the $args array, my top menu disappears, as well as all my image posts.

When I remove 'posts_per_page', my site works fine and all images appear. Why is this??


  $args = array(
    'post_type' => 'portfoliopost'
    'posts_per_page' => 4
  $query = new WP_Query( $args );

You're missing a comma at the end of 'post_type' => 'portfoliopost'

If you don't have error reporting turned on, it might be useful for you (in your development site only). You can do this by editing the wp_config.php file in your root wordpress folder and changing define( 'WP_DEBUG', false ); from false to true.

Well thats embarrassing! Thanks man. and thanks for the error reporting tip!
