Support » Fixing WordPress » Related Post by Current Post Categories with a Twist

  • Hello, I’ve found many codes that will display related post by current post category like the following:

    <?php
    $categories = get_the_category($post->ID);
    if ($categories) {
    	$category_ids = array();
    	foreach($categories as $individual_category) $category_ids[] = $individual_category->term_id;
    
    	$args=array(
    		'category__in' => $category_ids,
    		'post__not_in' => array($post->ID),
    		'showposts'=>5, // Number of related posts that will be shown.
    		'caller_get_posts'=>1
    	);
    	$my_query = new wp_query($args);
    	if( $my_query->have_posts() ) {
    		echo '<h3>Related Posts</h3><ul>';
    		while ($my_query->have_posts()) {
    			$my_query->the_post();
    		?>
    			<li><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title_attribute(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></li>
    		<?php
    		}
    		echo '</ul>';
    	}
    }
    ?>

    I would like to use this but all returned results must be part of one particular category. Example: I have a post that is in 3 Categories. Scuba, Thailand, and Featured.

    I want it to return all results that are in Scuba or Thailand but they also must be in Featured.

    Thanks!
