I've got a custom post type Projects with standard categories enabled. I'd like to pass the categories for the project to a WP_Query to pull in posts relating to that project. The code I've got so far is:
<?php // The Query $project_category = get_the_category(); ?> <?php $the_query = new WP_Query("cat=$project_category"); // The Loop while ( $the_query->have_posts() ) : $the_query->the_post(); ?> <p><a class="p-link" href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Read Post"><?php the_title_attribute(); ?></a></p> <?php endwhile; // Reset Post Data wp_reset_postdata(); ?>
I've had the same code working with the variable defined by a custom field, but would love a more intuitive way for my client to match posts to their projects than having to fish around for the cat ID.
