Custom Post Query by Term WordPress

  • SOLVED

I am trying to create a list of posts in a queried taxonomy term - AND display them on a page template (i.e. page-template.php)

Example, I have a X terms listed on a page. I'm trying to create a popover box that displays on hover of these terms that shows a list of the posts inside that [already queried] term.

I tried creating a custom loop using the code below. However, it doesn't show posts currently because I am not sure how to set it to show posts dynamically based on the taxonomy term queried. Right now I just stuck $term in the place where the slug should go. Obviously I can't put a slug here because I need it to be generated dynamically. Is this harder than I think? Or can this bit of code be modified slightly to work?

<?php $wp_query = new WP_Query( array ( 'post_type' => 'grid100index', '100gridgroups' => '$term', 'posts_per_page' => '8', 'paged' => get_query_var( 'paged' ) ) ); ?>


P.S. I have done this separately via a taxonomy-100gridgroups.php template and it works fine - presumably because the term query is already in place. The fuzzy part for me here is calling these posts by term into an isolated page template.

<?php $wp_query = new WP_Query( array ( 'post_type' => 'grid100index', '100gridgroups' => '$term', 'posts_per_page' => '8', 'paged' => get_query_var( 'paged' ) ) ); ?>

Remy answers:

Can we get a full picture of the code inside your template ?


streetfire comments:

Please see update. I'll try to answer any questions.


Remy comments:

The code for your query should be

<?php $wp_query = new WP_Query( array (
'post_type' => 'grid100index',
'tax_query' => array(
array(
'taxonomy' =>'100gridgroups',
'field' => 'slug',
'terms' => $lc->slug
)
),
'posts_per_page' => '8',
'paged' => get_query_var( 'paged' )
) ); ?>


Remy comments:

Also, it's better to use get_template_part() when doing include in template files, instead of the include() function


streetfire comments:

Remy, you are a genius! Thank you so much for the quick help, I greatly appreciate it!!!

Dbranes answers:

Did you try for example:


if( is_tax() ) {
$term_obj = get_queried_object();
$term = $term_obj->slug;
}


or

$term = get_query_var( '100gridgroups' );

where you would use it in your query part where:

'100gridgroups' => $term


streetfire comments:

No I haven't done it quite like that. How would that be integrated... something like this?

<?php $wp_query = new WP_Query( array ( 'post_type' => 'grid100index', '100gridgroups' => '$term', 'posts_per_page' => '8', 'paged' => get_query_var( 'paged' ) ) ); ?>

<?php if( is_tax() ) {

$term = get_queried_object();

$slug = $term->name;

};?>


Dbranes comments:

ok, didn't see the question update with the actual code.

I think @Remy solved it for you ;-)


streetfire comments:

No worries, thanks though!
