I'm looking to create a form that'll let users select from check boxes what categories they want the posts that will be displayed to come from, then have a button that'll submit it and process the wp_query loop with a new variable that has been created based upon the selection. So far, I've got the code to get the right files, but can't find a way to do it dynamically, or string the variables togther and seperate them with commas. The checkboxes will each relate to a category ID. Anyway, here is the code:
<?php $count="1" ?> <?php query_posts(array('category__and' => array($count))); ?> <?php if (have_posts()) : ?> <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?> <div class="topPost"> <h2 class="topTitle"><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2> <?php the_content(); ?> <span class="topMore"><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>">more...</a></span> <div class="cleared"></div> </div> <!-- Closes topPost --><br /> <?php endwhile; ?> <?php else : ?> <div class="topPost"> <h2 class="topTitle"><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>">Not Found</a></h2> <div class="topContent"><p>Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn't here. You can search again by using <a href="#searchform">this form</a>...</p></div> </div> <!-- Closes topPost --> <?php endif; ?>
Any help would be greatly appeciated. Been after this for a while actually, think it could really benifit a lotta people.
