Support » Plugin: Extended API » custom post taxonomy

    I have custom posts with custom taxonomies. I want to create a new custom post in a category. Everything works fine except the link to a custom category. The API says to use ‘terms_names’, but I don’t have explanation about the usage of this variable. The code below:

    'title'=>$title,
    'description'=>$body,
    'mt_allow_comments'=>0,  // 1 to allow comments
    'mt_allow_pings'=>0,  // 1 to allow trackbacks
    'post_type'=>'ad_listing',
    'mt_keywords'=>$keywords,
    'categories'=>array($category),
    
    'terms_names' => array('ad_cat' => 'Audi'),

    Hi,
    Just to confirm, are you trying to do this with my extended API plugin or are you using the native XML-RPC method to do this?

    If you’re using my plugin, then you’d create a post with wp_create_post() and then use wp_set_post_terms() to assign the post to categories.

    You may be able to use “tax_input” attribute from the create post method to accomplish the same thing. See this page in the codex: http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_insert_post

    The format you’re using above seems to suggest that you’re trying to use the native API method and not my plugin.
