If I could get any help with this, it would be great.
What I am trying to do is take code I wrote for my theme options to select categories and post them into a highlights section on my front page. Here is my code that works as is:
<strong>Highlights Category 1:</strong>
<p class="wpn_desc">Here you set the category that you want to use for the highlights area.</p>
<option value="0" <?php if (!$options['highlights_category_id_1']) echo 'selected="selected"'; ?>>Disabled</option>
<?php $categories = get_categories(); foreach($categories as $cat) : ?>
<option value="<?php echo $cat->term_id; ?>" <?php if ($options['highlights_category_id_1'] == $cat->term_id) echo 'selected="selected"'; ?>><?php echo $cat->cat_name; ?></option>
<?php endforeach; ?>
Now, what I really want is to change the category selection to either a post type selection, custom taxonomy or simply tags. I would love to have it as a post type selector the most, however, trying something as simple as tags leaves nothing in the drop down box to be selected. Like I said, it should be easy to do for tags, but I can’t get it to work.
