  • Resolved


    I have a custom taxonomy set for my posts and would like to filter both the Calendar and Story Budget by taxonomy.

    I have a Taxonomy of Town with different towns as terms. I’d like to filter the posts by those Towns. I wrote my own simple plugin to do this on the edit.php page but also need to filer on Calendar and Story budget.

    Any examples?

    For the Story Budget, we have an open issue I’ll try to get to in the next release. It shouldn’t be too much work to change it to a different taxonomy. I assume you’re referring to having each meta box show posts with a different custom taxonomy term.

    For the Calendar, can you describe a bit more about how you’d like the functionality to work? Mockups, if possible, would be really useful.


    You can check out a quick image concept of what I’d like be able to do here.

    I use WCK Taxonomy Creator to create some custom taxonomy and terms for a site I’m working on. I’d like to be able to filter the calendar (& story budget) with those custom terms.

    An example would be:
    I have a custom taxonomy of Town with 6 different town names as terms (“Boston” could be one). In calendar, filter the content my those town names. Only see posts with term “Boston”.

    Hope this helps and I explained myself OK.

    Yep, that explains it perfectly. I realize we don’t have an existing Github issue covering this, so I’ve created one. We’ll try to get to it in the next release.


    Thanks. It will be a big help for sites that produce a lot of content.

    This should be doable now in v0.7.4

    This doesn’t seem to work still.

    I have 6 custom post types and no articles shows up on the story budget page.

    Ok just added!! 🙂

    change line 354 of story-budget.php

    function get_posts_for_term( $term, $args = null ) {
    		$defaults = array(
    			'post_status' => null,
    			'author'      => null,
    			'posts_per_page' => apply_filters( 'ef_story_budget_max_query', 200 ),
    			'post_type'      => get_post_types(),  //<-- ADDED
    		$args = array_merge( $defaults, $args );

    For the Calender, Change Line 406 in calendar.php to:

    		'public'   => true,
    		'_builtin' => false
    		$post_query_args = array(
    			'post_status' => $filters['post_status'],
    			'post_type' => get_post_types($pargs),
    			//'post_type' => $filters['post_type'],  //<-- I commented this out
    			'cat'         => $filters['cat'],
    			'author'      => $filters['author']
