Support » Fixing WordPress » Get all posts from categories

  • I am trying to create a page template that will display all posts (custom post types) from all categories (custom taxonomies). I found a similar thread on here that got me started and I am almost there. What is happening is that for each category it shows all posts from all categories. In other words I would like it to be similar to this:

    Category 1:
    Category 1’s Post #1
    Category 1’s Post #2
    Category 1’s Post #3

    Category 2:
    Category 2’s Post #1
    Category 2’s Post #2
    Category 2’s Post #3

    and so on.

    The problem with the below code is that it is pulling all posts and filing them under each category where I need it to be all posts for that specific category – for all categories. I feel I am close but not quite there.

    Here is what I am working with:

    //for each category, show all posts
      'orderby' => 'name',
      'order' => 'ASC',
      'taxonomy' => 'closeouts_categories'
      foreach($categories as $category) {
          'showposts' => -1,
          'category_in' => array($category->term_id),
    	  'post_type' => 'our_closeouts',
    	  'taxonomy' => 'closeouts_categories'
          if ($posts) {
            echo '<p>Category: <a href="' . get_category_link( $category->term_id ) . '" title="' . sprintf( __( "View all posts in %s" ), $category->name ) . '" ' . '>' . $category->name.'</a> </p> ';
            foreach($posts as $post) {
              setup_postdata($post); ?>
              <p><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title_attribute(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></p>
            } // foreach($posts
          } // if ($posts
        } // foreach($categories

    Any takers? Thanks in advance for the help

  • I think you will get what you want if you change this:

    'category_in' => array($category->term_id),

    to this:

    'category__in' => array($category->term_taxonomy_id),

    Note the double underscores in ‘category__in’. Also, a given term might belong to more than one taxonomy, so you need to use term_taxonomy_id instead of just term_id.
