[resolved] Display Tags With List (3 posts)

    Is there anyway to include the posts tags within the ol of a category post list item?

    So each ol item would have the post title, the date then the tags for that post?

    Yes it is. You'll need to write an output filter to change what information is output. Here's an example: http://www.billerickson.net/code/display-posts-shortcode-full-content/

    (The example changes the excerpt to full post content which isn't what you're looking for, but it does show you how to use the output filter).

    I came across this article, but didn't find the link helpful. I've used other snippets to construct the function below, which will display tags if include_tags='true' is specified in the shortcode itself.

    add_filter( 'display_posts_shortcode_output', 'display_posts_with_tags', 10, 7 );
    function display_posts_with_tags( $output, $atts, $image, $title, $date, $excerpt, $inner_wrapper ) {
    	$tags = '';
    		if (array_key_exists('include_tags', $atts) && $atts['include_tags'] ) {
    			$posttags = get_the_tags();
    			if ($posttags) {
    				$tags = '<div class="tags">';
    			  foreach($posttags as $tag) {
    			    $tags .= $tag->name . ' ';
    			  $tags .= '</div>';
    	// First check if an excerpt is included by looking at the shortcode $atts
    	if ( $atts['include_excerpt'] )
    		// Now let's rebuild the excerpt with the facebook code at the end
    		$excerpt = '<div class="excerpt">' . get_the_excerpt() . '</div>';
    	else $excerpt = '';
    	// Now let's rebuild the output. Only the excerpt changed so we're using the original $image, $title, and $date
    	$output = '<' . $inner_wrapper . ' class="listing-item">' . $image . $title . $date . $excerpt . $tags . '</' . $inner_wrapper . '>';
    	// Finally we'll return the modified output
    	return $output;

    Hope this helps someone.
