Repeater Field with Taxonomy Field

  • Hello,

    I have to build a calendar page and I use the Repeater Field, this need contain some info like: Title, date, where and when. this par of the while work well, I can see easy all the il for every row I make in the backend.
    In the second part I need show last 2 news for the specific event. In my posts I have mark it with different category name. Inside the Repeater Field I have added a Taxonomy Field. How I can integrate the Taxonomy Field inside the while of the Repeater Field?

    I know to have wrong using this array 'category_name' => $posts->name, but how I can set up it?
    The for foreach work, but I see the post from all category.

    Some one can help me. Thank you!

    <div class="calendar">
      <div class="all-events">
        <?php if( have_rows('events_list') ): ?>

              <?php while( have_rows('events_list') ): the_row();
                // vars
                $title = get_sub_field('nome_evento');
                $where = get_sub_field('luogo');
                $when = get_sub_field('data_e_ora');
                $month = get_sub_field('mese');

  • Assuming your field ‘latest_news’ is taxonomy field with single selection and returning the term object.

    the ‘category_name’ is actually not name, it’s the slug. (i know… it’s confusing :/)

    So, you query should be:

    $category = get_field('latest_news'); // change your variable name so it doesn't confuse yourself
    $posts = get_posts(array(
        'posts_per_page'  => 2,
        'post_type'     => 'post',
        'category_name' => $category->slug, // this is using slug, not name
        'cat' => $category->term_id // or you can do this instead


  • Hi Gummi!
    Thank you! You have absolutely right!!!
    Now work well.

    I have set the variable inside the while, using get_sub_field because it’s inside of one Repeater Field. $category = get_sub_field('latest_news').
    Also I have set the Taxonomy Filed inside the post.
    And the 'category_name' => $category->slug, work perfectly!

    Thank you so much!
