I am attempting to extend functionality to my client's custom theme, and I am having issues trying to get query_posts() to pull a list of custom taxonomies filtered by category. The creation of the custom post type in functions.php is here:
Currently the site has a page that pulls in all of the posts, then filters out what is visible via jquery. The query that pulls in the posts is this:
query_posts( array( 'post_type' => 'myportfoliotype', 'paged' => $paged, 'posts_per_page' => 80))
This works, but as I said pulls in everything. What they want now is 2 custom templates that pulls in only 2 specific categories each. I can't do the filtering via jquery since it doesn't work visually to do that in this case. I am attempting to pull in just the 2 categories, but for some reason no variation of the following code seems to work:
query_posts( array( 'post_type' => 'myportfoliotype', 'paged' => $paged, 'posts_per_page' => 80, 'tag_id' => '9' ))
Everything I have tried either still pulls in all posts, or pulls in none of them. Any suggestions are appreciated, thanks.
ps. Does anyone know of a function to dump the raw query that query_posts generates? If I could see what the actual query was doing with each variation I tried and compared that to the info in wp_postmeta it might help in figuring out where the issue lies.
