Relationship and Gallery

  • Hi there, great plugin, I use it all the time. I also bought the Gallery plugin, works like a charm!

    Question: I have two custom post types, for a client that manufactures custom products. The CPT’s are “design” and “designer”. I add a post for the designer. Then I add a post for the design, and use the relationship field (“designer_name”) to assign the designer of that design (and show a thumbnail and a link to their full profile). It was working perfectly when I was using the built-in Featured Image, like so:

    $args = array(
    'numberposts' => -1,
    'post_type' => 'design',
    'meta_query' => array(
    	'key' => 'designer_name',
    	'value' => $post->ID,
    	'compare' => 'LIKE',
    ) );
    $posts_array = get_posts( $args );
    if( $posts_array ) {
    foreach( $posts_array as $related ) {
    	echo get_the_post_thumbnail($related->ID, 'thumbnail');
    	echo '<a href="' . $related->guid . '">' . $related->post_title . '</a>';

    This works great, but now I’m using the Gallery plugin, because I have more than one image for each designer/design. But on this particular area, I want to ONLY get the first image from the gallery, like so:

    <?php $gallery_images = get_field('gallery'); ?> 
    <img src="<?php echo $gallery_images[0]['url']; ?>" />

    This works fine by itself, elsewhere on the site, but how would I combine the first bit of code with the second: basically how do I replace the get_the_post_thumbnail with this gallery code above?


  • Hi @miketargett

    No worries. All you need to do is use the second parameter $post_id to target the post that you want to load the gallery data from.

    Your code would look like this:

    foreach( $posts_array as $related ) {
    	$gallery_images = get_field('gallery'); 
    	echo '<img src="' . $gallery_images[0]['url'] . '" />';
    	echo '<a href="' . $related->guid . '">' . $related->post_title . '</a>';


  • OH man, so simple, thanks so much, and for the quick reply! Cheers, -Mike
