Loop through posts if True/False

  • Hi Folks,

    I’ve ran in to a little trouble with my slideshow loop.

    Essentially I have a custom post type that has a large number of posts. Only some of these posts will have a slideshow.

    The slideshow has takes 2 fields, an image and a title.

    I want to loop through the posts of this custom post type that have a slideshow image and title value in the field and only show posts posts that DO have these fields available.

    This is where I thought a True/False would come in useful. I have an option to set a True/False with conditional logic, if set to true slideshow image and slideshow title appear in the wordpress admin section.

    My logic would be something along the lines of:
    > If post is set True to having a slideshow then
    > Loop through all posts that have this condition
    > Output slideshow posts only

    Here is what I have tried to do:

    Though no slides appear with this code.

    If anyone has any better suggestions to achieving this, I’m happy to suggestions, I just thought a True/False would be the best way to filter posts that require slide fields.

  • Hi,
    If you want to show only the posts that have a true/false checkbox checked (the checkbox that trigger the two other field on your backend).
    you should restrict to these posts directly on your query

    'meta_query' => array(
        'post_type' => 'areas-of-focus',
        array(
         'key' => 'is_a_featured_area_of_focus',
         'value' => '1',
         'compare' => '=='
        )
     )

    something like that should return only the posts that have the is_a_featured_area_of_focus field set to true.

    so you can get rid of if( get_field('is_a_featured_area_of_focus') ) : and other stuff related to checking if this field is checked on the loop and just take care of the layout.

    let me know how that goes
