Additional Category Fields WordPress

Hi All,

I have a blog which I have developed for a client which is near completion, except for one more issue.

Basically, we have created additional options within the Posts > Categories so that the user can add a Twitter, Facebook & Youtube URL. All of that has been created.

However, when I try and pull the information onto the front end of the category pages, it displays the URL's but of a different category. Some it works for fine, but I would say half just doesn't display the correct ones.

It looks like if a post within that category has also been assigned another category it uses that category's information instead.

Any ideas how I can get around this issue? The code I have so far is below (Please note, the information I am calling is within a tooltip):

[code]

<?php $term = get_term_by( 'slug', get_query_var( 'term' ), get_query_var( 'taxonomy' ) ); ?>

<?php
$category = get_category( get_query_var( 'cat' ) );
$terms = get_the_terms( $category->cat_ID , 'category' );
if($terms) {
foreach( $terms as $term ) {
$t_id = $term->term_id;
$term_meta = get_option( "taxonomy_$t_id" ); ?>


<script type="text/javascript">
jQuery(function() {
jQuery('.follow_us ul li a.twitter').data('powertipjq', jQuery([

Any help would be massively appreciated.

Hi,

Thanks for your help.

That unfortunately pulled up an error, by not displaying anything below.

Any other ideas?

Navjot Singh answers:

get_the_terms() accepts Post ID and not category ID.

Try changing this

$terms = get_the_terms( $category->cat_ID , 'category' );

to

$terms = get_the_terms( $post->ID , 'category' );


craigfarrall comments:

Hi,

I have changed that code, but it still doesn't display the correct information.

Any other ideas?

Does anybody have any other ideas? really struggling here.

Hariprasad Vijayan answers:

Hi,

How many category you are selecting while adding a post? If you are selecting multiple category for a post, remove multiple selection and check. Let me know it is working?


craigfarrall comments:

Yes, more than one category has been added to certain posts, so I think that is where I am struggling.

Any ideas?


Hariprasad Vijayan comments:

Avoid multiple selection. Hope it will work.


craigfarrall comments:

It is quite hard to avoid multiple selection, as that is what it's main purpose is.

Anybody else have any ideas on this? I really need to find a resolve for it.

Thanks.
