Here we go.
This is the blog: http://demo.kngfu.com/milagro
If you click a category, ie. Media. You are brought the category.php page. All is ok, BUT the categories are not filtering. I’ve tried these various snippets to get it functioning, to no avail.
//this is the current block being run atm, the category_name param is //just a test, which is failing, it's just showing ALL category posts //i'm not an avid php'er so i'm not sure if that syntax is correct <h1>Category: <a href="<?php the_permalink();?>"><?php $theTitle = single_cat_title(); ?></a></h1> <?php query_posts('category_name='.$theTitle);?> <?php if ( have_posts() ) : while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?> ......content....... <?php endwhile; ?> <?php endif; ?>
As you can see, the single_cat_title() function is working, yet I can’t get an accurate query of posts per cat.
This is using the WP_Query object, but still failing.
<?php <h1>Category: <a href="<?php the_permalink();?>"><?php $theTitle = single_cat_title(); ?></a></h1> $_posts= new WP_Query('category='.$theTitle); if($_posts->have_posts()) : while($_posts->have_posts()) : $_posts- >the_post(); if($post->ID == $no_duplicate) continue; update_post_caches($posts); ?> ......content....... <?php endwhile; ?> <?php endif; ?>
Either way, I’m sure someone here has a quick solution, let me know.
I’m also having problems with new posts in my Dashboard, my new posts wont appear. Also, I can’t filter for certain categories in my Categories section in wp-admin.php yet all the posts I’m looking for are in my database under the correct category!
Not sure if these are related, but I figure they would be.
PS: Feel free to critique the site, it’s my first WP site!
