Support » Fixing WordPress » Displaying Custom Post Types by category

  • WideOpenCommunications


    I’ve looked and looked for help on this and either can’t find it or can’t understand it. Using various tutorials, I learned how to make a custom post type (called vendors). I get them to write and display, but now my issue is I need them to display only within their respective categories. I created a taxonomy called vendor_categories and created categories like Cakes, Attire, Honeymoon, ect. The site is not live, but URLs will display like so… (main page. created vendor.php to display various vendor info) (only cake vendors should display) (only attire vendors should display)

    and so on. I can get the test vendors which I entered to display, but can not figure out how to get specified ones to display, depending on the URL of the page. Below is my code I have thus far…

    			$loop = new WP_Query( array(
    			  'post_type' => 'vendors',
    			  'posts_per_page' => 10 )
    			while ($loop->have_posts()) : $loop->the_post();
    			  echo '<div class="vendorcard">';
    			  echo '<a href="'.get_post_meta($post->ID, "business_website", true).'" target="_blank" border="0" title="'.get_the_title().'">';
    			  the_post_thumbnail('thumbnail', array('class' => 'vendorlogo'));
    			  echo '</a>';
    			  echo '<a href="'.get_post_meta($post->ID, "business_website", true).'" target="_blank" class="businesslink">'.get_the_title().'</a><br/>';
    			  echo get_post_meta($post->ID, "business_description", true) .'<br/>';
    			  echo '<b>Address:</b> '.get_post_meta($post->ID, "business_address", true).'<br/>';
    			  echo '<b>Phone:</b> '.get_post_meta($post->ID, "business_phone", true).'<br/>';
    			  echo '<b>E-mail:</b> <a href="mailto:'.get_post_meta($post->ID, "business_email", true).'">'.get_post_meta($post->ID, "business_email", true) .'</a>';
    			  echo '</div>';
    			  echo '<div style="clear:both"></div>';

    Any help would be more then righteous. Thanks in advance.
