How to get posts from a sidebar to display as a regular posts page

Ok so I have a sidebar widget that pulls in from a list of posts from a custom post type, which itself pulls in from all other custom post types. I need to display the list of posts from tab 2 in this sidebar on a page as a list of posts like an archive. This is the code that pulls in the posts for the sidebar:

<?php

// Prevent loading this file directly
defined( 'ABSPATH' ) || exit;


class ChemTabs extends WP_Widget {

function __construct() {
parent::__construct(
'tabs', _('Tabs Widget'),
array(
'description' => _('A tabs widget.'),
));
}

private function ce_getPostClass($style, $index) {
switch ($style) {
case 'first-up':
if ( $index == 0 ) return 'first-up';
else return 'list-type';
break;
default:
return $style;
}
}

private function ce_has($listStyle, $index, $post) {
$class = $this->ce_getPostClass($listStyle, $index);

$has = array(
'thumb' => false,
'terms' => true,
'date' => true,
'content' => false,
'excerpt' => false,
'title' => true,
'video' => false,
'webinarDate' => false
);
switch ($class) {
case 'first-up':
$has['thumb'] = true;
$has['excerpt'] = true;
break;
case 'list-type':
$has['terms'] = false;
break;
case 'thumblist':
$has['thumb'] = true;
break;
case 'single': // no need for this anymore probably
$has['content'] = true;
break;
}

switch ($post->post_type) {
case 'video':
$has['video'] = true;
break;
case 'webinar':
$has['webinarDate'] = true;
break;
}
return $has;
}

public function widget( $args, $instance ) {
global $post;

$instance['tab_1_title'] = isset($instance['tab_1_title'])?$instance['tab_1_title']:'Tab 1';
$instance['tab_2_title'] = isset($instance['tab_2_title'])?$instance['tab_2_title']:'Tab 2';

$instance['storylist_id_1'] = isset($instance['storylist_id_1']) ? $instance['storylist_id_1'] : '';
$instance['storylist_id_2'] = isset($instance['storylist_id_2']) ? $instance['storylist_id_2'] : '';

$instance['n'] = isset($instance['n']) ? $instance['n'] : 4;

$list_channel = isset($instance['channel'])?$instance['channel']:0;
$list_division = isset($instance['division'])?$instance['division']:0;
$readmore = isset($instance['readmore'])?$instance['readmore'] : '';

$list_args1 = array( "post_type" => "any", "post__in" => get_post_meta($instance['storylist_id_1'], 'storylist', true), "orderby" => "post__in" );
$posts1 = new WP_Query();
$posts1 = $posts1->query($list_args1);

$list_args2 = array( "post_type" => "any", "post__in" => get_post_meta($instance['storylist_id_2'], 'storylist', true), "orderby" => "post__in" );
$posts2 = new WP_Query();
$posts2 = $posts2->query($list_args2);

// Note: posts temporarily rendered with ajax
echo $args['before_widget'];

I created a page template specifically for this page, but it just comes up blank. Here is the code for that page:

<?php
/*
Template Name: Custom StoryList Archives
*/
?>

<?php get_header(); ?>
<?php
if ( is_single(210639) ) {

$args = array( 'post_type' => 'storylist', 'posts_per_page' => 30 );

}
endif();
?>

<?php get_footer(); ?>


What am I missing????

Answer

I solved this by adding this code: $list_args2 = array( "post_type" => "any", "post__in" => get_post_meta( 210639, 'storylist', true), "orderby" => "post__in", 'post_status' => 'publish' );
