First post so apologies for any mistakes. I've looked hard for a solution and tried a few alternatives including child categories that caused unwanted behaviour elsewhere on my site in question.
I'm trying to display a menu that will:
- - display posts from a category in a ul
- show those post titles as links to the post
- title the menu with the category
- (optional but WIN) exclude the current post from the list
This is how they should look in the menu under the_title() and the_excerpt() (bottom left - currently hardcoded to look for this particular category, but there are and will be several more).
My problem is that some of the posts have two categories: 'Projects', and a project category. The category 'projects' enables posts to be listed in a project menu page like this.
If I try to show a list of category posts, posts before 'P' seem to work ok, but ones after just use the category 'projects'. Beside that, the only thing I can get to display is the caetgory title using get_category().
As with most people who ask for help, I'm no PHP coder. I've found a few lines that do one aspect of the job, but hacking them together hasn't been successful sadly. PHP syntax confuses the hell out of me.
I'd love to use a plugin, but the people using the site won't have a clue how to create a category menu plugin for each new project category they create (I'd use Widget Logic to show/hide per category if that was the case).
Sorry for the lengthy question. Can anyone help? Have I been in any way clear?
