Recents Posts from Custom Post Type per Categories WordPress

  • SOLVED

Ok.. So I want this code to make something like this.....

Category 1
..Post Z
..Post Y
..Post X


Category 2
..Post Z
..Post Y
..Post X


Category 3
..Post Z
..Post Y
..Post X


Category N
..Post Z
..Post X
..Post Y


Code is listing the categories just fine, but when it gets to the part of bringing the posts of each category, is getting random and repeated posts.

You can take a look a this code here [[LINK href="http://www.favoritosdominicana.com/videos/"]]http://www.favoritosdominicana.com/videos/[[/LINK]]

My idea is to make something like youtube frontpage.

If you have a better code and shorter best for me.

Sorry for my english.



<?php

$taxonomy = 'medios'; /* Custom Post Type Category... register_taxonomy( 'medios',array ( 0 => 'noticias-de-hoy', ) */
$terms = get_terms($taxonomy);

if ( $terms && !is_wp_error( $terms ) ) :
foreach ( $terms as $term ) :

$args = array(
'post_type' => 'noticias-de-hoy', /* Custom Post Type register_post_type( 'noticias-de-hoy' , $args ); */
'posts_per_page' => 3,
'tax_query' => array( /* I'm using tax_query, I dont know if this is ok here */
'taxonomy' => 'medios',
'term' => $term->term_id
)
);

?>
<ul>

<div class="clear"></div>
<?php echo $term->term_id.' '; /*I'm printing category ID */?> <a href="<?php echo get_term_link($term->slug, $taxonomy); ?>"><h2><?php echo $term->name; /*Name of the Category */ ?></h2></a></div>
<div class="clear"></div>

<?php query_posts($args); if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>

<div class="video-item">
<a class="entry-link" href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>">
<?php if ( has_post_thumbnail()) { ?>

<?php //echo the_post_thumbnail('thumbnail'); Posts dont have thumbnails now; using a demo images ?>
<img src="http://placehold.it/200x125&amp;text=No+Image" alt="article image" />


<?php } else { ?><img src="http://placehold.it/200x125&amp;text=No+Image" alt="article image" /><?php } //Also here demo images ?>

<?php the_title(); ?>

</a>
</div>

<?php endwhile; ?>

<?php else: ?>
<li>Doesnt have any post</li>
<? endif; ?>

</ul>

are you adding same posts in multiple taxonomy?


<?php
$taxonomy = 'medios'; /* Custom Post Type Category... register_taxonomy( 'medios',array ( 0 => 'noticias-de-hoy', ) */
$terms = get_terms($taxonomy);

$args = array(
'post_type' => 'noticias-de-hoy', /* Custom Post Type register_post_type( 'noticias-de-hoy' , $args ); */
'post__not_in' => $exclude, // do not repeat
'posts_per_page' => 3,
'tax_query' => array( /* I'm using tax_query, I dont know if this is ok here */
'taxonomy' => 'medios',
'term' => $term->term_id
)
);
?>
<ul>
<div class="clear"></div>

<?php echo $term->term_id.' '; /*I'm printing category ID */?> <a href="<?php echo get_term_link($term->slug, $taxonomy); ?>"><h2><?php echo $term->name; /*Name of the Category */ ?></h2></a></div>
<div class="clear"></div>
<?php query_posts($args); if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post();

No, every post has only 1 category!! Your code is the one the site right now, still isnt working.

Bob comments:

Please remove

echo "<h2>".$cat->name."</h2>"


Bob comments:

I am also missing <strong></ul></strong> right after <em>endif;</em>
please add it.


ziport comments:

Ok, this one was working for post type "post" but not the custom post type "noticias-de-hoy"


Bob comments:

change line query_posts and add post type parameter

query_posts("cat=$cat_id&post_per_page=3&post_type=noticias-de-hoy");


ziport comments:

Still the same, and I'm not sure if cat=$cat_id works with CPTs


Bob comments:

replace query_posts line with this one


$postArgs = array(
'posts_per_page'=>3,
'order' => 'ASC',
'post_type'=>'noticias-de-hoy',
'tax_query' => array(
'relation' => 'AND',
array(
'taxonomy' => 'medios',
'field' => 'id',
'terms' => $cat->term_id
)
)
);
query_posts( $postArgs );


ziport comments:

Thanks bro! I made work from my side here!

Here's the code that I used....


$args = array(
'post_type' => 'noticias-de-hoy', /* Custom Post Type register_post_type( 'noticias-de-hoy' , $args ); */
'posts_per_page' => 3,
'taxonomy' => 'medios',
'field' => 'id',
'term' => $term->slug,
);


Full code:


<?php

$taxonomy = 'medios'; /* Custom Post Type Category... register_taxonomy( 'medios',array ( 0 => 'noticias-de-hoy', ) */
$terms = get_terms($taxonomy);

foreach ( $terms as $term ) :

$args = array(
'post_type' => 'noticias-de-hoy', /* Custom Post Type register_post_type( 'noticias-de-hoy' , $args ); */
'posts_per_page' => 3,
'taxonomy' => 'medios',
'field' => 'id',
'term' => $term->slug,

);

?>
<ul>

<div class="clear"></div>
<?php echo $term->term_id.' '; /*I'm printing category ID */?> <a href="<?php echo get_term_link($term->slug, $taxonomy); ?>"><h2><?php echo $term->name; /*Name of the Category */ ?></h2></a></div>
<div class="clear"></div>

<?php query_posts($args); if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); $urlsource = rwmb_meta('favoritos_url', true ); ?>

<div class="video-item">

<a class="entry-link" href="<?php echo $urlsource; ?>">

Bob comments:

great! I am glad to know that your problem is solved

'taxonomy' => 'medios',
'field' => 'id',
'term' => $term->slug,

but I think there should be <em>$term->term_id</em> instead of <em>$term->slug</em>

if you want to use slug then <em>'field' => 'id',</em> should be <em>'field' => 'slug'</em>

however if it works for you without any change then it's okay.

have a nice day :)

Add

<?php wp_reset_query(); ?>

before

</ul>

<?php endforeach; ?>


ziport comments:

Update code! Still the same!


Navjot Singh comments:

Try changing


'tax_query' => array( /* I'm using tax_query, I dont know if this is ok here */
'taxonomy' => 'medios',
'term' => $term->term_id
)


to

'tax_query' => array( /* I'm using tax_query, I dont know if this is ok here */
'taxonomy' => 'medios',
'field' => 'id',
'term' => $term->term_id
)


Navjot Singh comments:

Navjot Singh comments:

Add

<?php rewind_posts(); ?>


before

</ul>

Ryan S answers:

Try something like this


$taxonomies = array(
'medios'
);

$args = array(
'orderby' => 'name',
'order' => 'ASC',
'hide_empty' => true,
'fields' => 'all',
'hierarchical' => true,
'child_of' => 0,
'pad_counts' => false,
'cache_domain' => 'core'
);

$terms = get_terms( $taxonomies, $args );

if( $terms ) {
foreach( $terms as $key => $term ) {
// assign portfolio item in a single variable
$custom_args = array(
'post_type' => 'noticias-de-hoy',
'category_name' => $term->slug
'posts_per_page' => -1
);

// The Query
$the_query = new WP_Query( $custom_args );

// The Loop
if ( $the_query->have_posts() )
{
while ( $the_query->have_posts() ) { $the_query->the_post();

// your code here
the_title();

}
}

}
}



Hope that helps
