I have a flexible content field in which I want to display certain events.
The events that are shown should be selected by a taxonomy field where several entries (cities) of a custom post taxonomy (locations) can be selected by checkbox. (multiselect)
The return is an Taxonomy object.
I need a list of the slugs from the selected fields.
The list should be e.g. like: ‘munich’, ‘london’,
The relevant Code is
<?php $locations = get_sub_field('select_locations'); $loop = new WP_Query( array( 'post_type' => 'events', 'posts_per_page' => 99, 'tax_query' => array( array( 'taxonomy' => 'locations', 'field' => 'slug', 'terms' => array( /* HERE SHOULD BE THE LIST */ ) ) ) ) ); ?>
I tried several things but I can’t get it working.
I would be very happy if someone could help me with this.
Thanks a lot.
I’ve been trying to do something similar. I needed to pull list of category Names and slugs and use them to populate a News feed. I’m sure this is probably not the best way to do it but it worked for me.
//vars $terms = get_sub_field('filter_news_feed'); //set variables for the category slug and category name $output = ""; $nameOutput = ""; //Loop throuh each item in the array and assign the slug and name values to their variables foreach( $terms as $term ): $output.= $term->slug . ', '; $nameOutput.= $term->name . ', '; endforeach; //trim the last , and space ' ' off of the list $trimOutput = rtrim($output,', '); //trim the last , and space ' ' off of the list $trimNameOutput = rtrim($nameOutput,', ');
and then to load it into the array:
$args = array( 'post_type' => 'post', 'post_parent' => 0, 'posts_per_page' => 4, 'order' => 'DSC', ); //adding 'category_name' => 'slug, slug, slug, etc'; to args array $args['category_name'] = $trimOutput;
Hope that helps….
thank you for your answer. I allready found a solution with the help of a developer.
It seems quite similar to yours.
Just for anyone who’s interested:
$locations = get_sub_field(‘orte_eingrenzen’);
$locationsSelected = array();
foreach( $orte as $ort ):
$locationsSelected = $ort->slug;
$loop = new WP_Query( array( ‘post_type’ => ‘kurse’, ‘posts_per_page’ => 99, ‘meta_key’ => ‘datum’, ‘orderby’ => ‘meta_value’, ‘order’ => ‘ASC’,
‘tax_query’ => array(
‘taxonomy’ => ‘loacations’,
‘field’ => ‘slug’,
‘terms’ => $locationsSelected
