  • Hi @cshirish

    To load the selected values from a taxonomy field, you can use the get_field function like so:

    $selected = get_field('taxonomy_field_name');

    I just looked at the get_posts documentation and the following is very useful:

    Note: The category parameter needs to be the ID of the category, and not the category name.
    Note: The category parameter can be a comma separated list of categories, as the get_posts() function passes the 'category' parameter directly into WP_Query as 'cat'. 

    So, with that in mind, please edit your taxonomy field and select ‘ID’ as the return format setting. Then you can use the following code:

    $selected = get_field('taxonomy_field_name');
    $args = array(
    	'posts_per_page'   => 3,
    	'offset'           => 0,
    	'category'         => implode(',',$selected),
    	'orderby'          => 'post_date',
    	'order'            => 'DESC',
    	'include'          => '',
    	'exclude'          => '',
    	'meta_key'         => '',
    	'meta_value'       => '',
    	'post_type'        => 'post',
    	'post_mime_type'   => '',
    	'post_parent'      => '',
    	'post_status'      => 'publish',
    	'suppress_filters' => true );

    Hope that helps.
