Show on start page – True or False

  • Hi,

    On my start page I have three separated loops, with an offset. Below you can see the first one. I would like to get some assistance on how I can connect to a true/false field to this code and depending on the value show or hide the post.

    If the true/false field (“show-on-startpage“) is true then the post should appear on the page, if false it should not be visible.

    Can someone please help me?


    <?php query_posts(array('orderby' => 'title', 'order' => 'asc', 'showposts' => 2, 'post_parent' => 7, 'post_type' => 'page')); while (have_posts()) { the_post(); ?>
    <div class="coworker col-lg-4 col-sm-6 col-md-6 col-xs-14">
        <div class="coworker-wrap">
        <?php the_post_thumbnail('full', array('class' => 'img-responsive')); ?>
        <div class="coworker-info">
            <h2><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>
            <p><?php the_field('team');?><?php if(get_field('team')) { ?><br/><?php }?><?php the_field('title'); ?></p>
    <?php } ?>
    <?php wp_reset_query(); ?> 
  • There are multiple ways to do this. You could either create a custom taxonomy called something like “show_on_home” and then, just like a category, you would choose an option when publishing the post and the just add ‘show_on_home’ => ‘true’ to your query.

    Or, if you really want to use ACF to do this, you could just use a conditional statement to hide some of them. Something like this:

    if (get_field('show_on_home')) {
    Put your loop here...

    That is sort of inefficient though because your still loading the posts with the loop, and then just hiding them.

    The better way to do it, although a bit more complex, is using meta_queries in your main query. I would start here to learn about those:
