Normally after looking up source code, or googling I can figure these things out, but this one has me scratching my head...
register_taxonomy() with $args with
'query_var' => true in my themes
functions.php is causing an empty pop-up media library page that usually shows all my files..
Playing around in the source code, I found that when I set
'query_var' => true, the array that prints the media items (
media.php) is empty, instead of the 100s of posts that show when
query_var => false
As I do need to query the var on the site, but not the admin, I've made this bandaid solution:
$queryvar = (is_admin()) ? false : true; register_taxonomy( ... , ... , array( ... 'query_var' => $queryvar, ... ));
But I've found lots of people online with the same issue, but no resolve on any threads, so my snippet above might be of help- but if anyone could shed some light on what's going on that'd be great.
