Support » Themes and Templates » List of tagged posts on static pages?

  • I would like to list posts having a certain tag on pages, something similar to author posts.

    The ideal would be to have x most recent posts with tag y and a link to the tag page listing all posts with the specified tag.

    Is there any ready made code/plug-in for this or could anyone give me a hint how to do this?

  • If you use the WordPress Default 1.6 theme, you will see posts on displayed with the tags. When you click on a tag, it takes you to the tag archive automatically–that’s the WordPress native ability to handle archives.

    Not sure if that answers your question so will also say that you can use the template tag, query_posts() (see the Tag Parameters and Combining Parameters sections), to present a page of posts that match your criteria.

    Ok, thanks for the reply but it still didn’t solve my problem.

    To detail a bit more what I was hoping to achieve:

    I would like to have static pages (the ones that I write, in my site e.g ‘Dogs’) display in the body of the page a short list of posts tagged with the page-slug (dogs). if there is no tag that corresponds with the page_slug it should just not display anything. I think it would be ok to just display the titles clickable.

    Now, since I am only semiliterate in php I don’t want to spend a lot of time reinventing the wheel. I was hoping someone had already done this or could maybe point me to a plug-in that could do something like this.

    Is this what you mean? This lists ALL posts with the tag=elaine, I am trying to figure out how to list, say 5 at a time and the n next>>

    		query_posts('tag=elaine'); ?>
    		 <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    		 <h2><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="<?php _e('Permanent l&auml;nk till'); ?> <?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>
             <?php the_excerpt(); ?>
    		 <span class="post-cat">Skrivet:</span> <span class="post-calendar"><?php the_time('d F, Y') ?>.
             <?php the_tags(); ?>
    		 <?php endwhile;?>
