Globally filtering posts by Custom Taxonomy
On our site we want to add the possiblity for the user to choose the content (s)he would like to read about the most. Therefore, I added a simple form which displays all terms of our custom taxonomy (which is assigned to a custom content type).
Once the user made his/her choice, the term ids are saved in a COOKIE.
What I need now is a hook to change *all* queries to reflect the user’s preference.
I have a custom content type called “News”. This content-type has a custom taxonomy called “Flowers”. The taxonomy has different terms (e.g. colours) like: Green, Blue, etc. On the front page the user chose to only see News (the content type) that have the term “Green” assigned to the taxonomy “flowers”. This is now the global setting. Whenever a list of news is being displayed it filters out all entries that do not meet the requirements.
Is this even possible like that?
I tried finding some useful info on the “Custom Queries”-Codex page and also checked the pre_get_posts / found_posts hooks/filters to no avail.
pre_get_posts sounds perfect, but can it work with custom taxonomies?
Any help is much appreciated. Thanks!
