Support » Fixing WordPress » Getting movie and serial on actor page

  • I’m building a cinema site, I came with a problem, let me explain:

    *Movies- are stored in Post’s
    *Actors- are stored in Post Type – persoane ( taxonomy= lista)
    *Serials – are stored in Post Type – serial ( taxonomy= seriale)

    I use Advance Custom Field to link the Person to the movie –

    AFC (

    How i add: I add new actor post to post type ( persoane), after i add the movie( in post’s), in sidebar(post’s, movie page) i link the actor ( After i Link the actor on the actor page it display the movie’s that actor play in

    I use this code to do that

    //create new loop query for films by this actor
    $movies = $wpdb->get_col("SELECT post_id FROM $wpdb->postmeta WHERE meta_key = 'distributie' AND meta_value LIKE '%".get_the_ID()."%'");
    $the_query = new WP_Query( array( 'post__in' => $movies) );
    // The Loop
    while ( $the_query->have_posts() ) : $the_query->the_post();
        echo '<div class="actor-box-related"><a class="actor-titlu" href="';
        echo '" title="'.get_the_title().'">';
        <img class="actor-img" src="/scripts/timthumb.php?src=<?php the_field('img'); ?>&h=90&w=60&zc=1" alt="<?php the_title(); ?>"  title="<?php the_title(); ?>"/>
        <?php the_title();
        echo '</a></div>';
    // Reset Post Data

    The problem:

    I create a Post Type – serial where I add the Serials (Ex: heroes,prisonbreak… )

    How can i display on the actor’s page the serials that actor play in.

    The up code get me only the movies from post’s, how can i get the movies from that PostType (serial).

    Can I put both together to get movies and serials? Or how can i display the serial’s on actor page, and IF no movie or serial is atach retrive the text “No movies for this actor”

    Thanks in advance for those who help me.
