Support » Plugin: Category to Pages WUD » get_the_category() not working for non-admin users

    This plugin seems to work great. However, in one of my templates, making a call to get_the_category() doesn’t return anything for a page that is tagged with a category. Strangely, it only returns the applicable categories when logged in with an admin account (not, for example, a subscriber account).

    Do you have this in all the templates or just one of it?

    Can you give me a copy of the code to display the categories?
    So i can test it on my site.

    Ok found it … 🙂
    for POSTS: get_the_category();
    for PAGES: get_the_terms( $post->ID, ‘categories’ );

    To avoid using 2 codes (pages and posts), use the shortcode: wudrelated
    can be used as follows:
    [wudrelated] = Displays all related post and/or pages.
    Extra parameters:
    [wudrelated max=”x”] where X is the maximum records to show
    [wudrelated flat=”1″] shows the post/pages next to each other instead as list
    [wudrelated title=”x”] shows a custom title instead the title entered in the admin page
    [wudrelated include=”category”] shows also the related categories
    The parameters can be mixed in one shortcode

    Optional parameters:
    [wudrelated type=”page”] = Displays all related pages
    [wudrelated type=”post”] = Displays all related posts.
    These parameters cannot be used together with the others.
