    Hello @madturki,

    You can use WP_Query http://codex.wordpress.org/Class_Reference/WP_Query#Taxonomy_Parameters

    Or do you mean taxonomy archive page?

    Thanks Nadia,

    I meant on the front end. For some reason no posts were being returned when I first tried get_posts. In the end this worked for me:

    $args = array(
    		'post_type' => 'attachment',
    		'posts_per_page' => -1,
    		'post_status' =>'any',
        );
    	$attachments = new WP_Query($args);
    
    	if ($attachments) {
    		foreach ( $attachments->posts as $attachment ) {
    			echo '<br>' . wp_get_attachment_url($attachment->ID) ;
    		}
    	}

    Thanks!

    Sorry, no! This actually isn’t getting by category yet. If I enter in ‘category_name’ as an option I get nothing returned.

    @madturki,

    You have to study examples on this page http://codex.wordpress.org/Class_Reference/WP_Query more carefully.

    What you need is something like:

    $args = array(
    	'post_type' => 'attachment',
    	'post_status' => 'any',
    	'tax_query' => array(
    		array(
    			'taxonomy' => 'NAME_OF_YOUR_TAXONOMY',
    			'field' => 'slug',
    			'terms' => 'NAME_OF_THE_TERM_OF_YOUR_TAXONOMY'
    		)
    	)
    );
    $the_query = new WP_Query( $args );
    
    if ( $the_query->have_posts() ) {
    	while ( $the_query->have_posts() ) {
    		$the_query->the_post();
    		echo wp_get_attachment_image( get_the_ID(), 'full' );
    	}
    } else {
    	// no attachments found
    }
    
    wp_reset_postdata();

    Hope it helps.

    Nadia
