So I’m trying to query posts that are in a child category name Website Development Portfolio. I can query posts in the parent category just fine like so. If I enter ‘Website Development Portfolio’ instead of ‘Portfolio’ then the query returns all posts. How can I return only the posts in the child category?
$posts = get_posts(array(
'posts_per_page' => 50,
'post_type' => 'post',
'child_of' => '17',
'orderby' => 'name',
'order' => 'ASC',
'category_name' => 'Portfolio'
if( $posts ): ?>
<ul id="HomePlansListUl" class="col-xs-12">
<?php foreach( $posts as $post ):
setup_postdata( $post )
<li class="col-lg-4 col-md-4 col-sm-6 col-xs-12 list-unstyled">
<a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?>
<img class="" src="<?php the_field('home_image'); ?>" alt="" />
<?php endforeach; ?>
<? wp_reset_postdata(); ?>
<?php endif; ?>
When I look at the codex I don’t see an option for child categories.
Reading your WP Reference link:
Can it be that using a category name with spaces interprets as “Website+Development+Portfolio”?
Have you also tried to use the “category id” for the child category ‘Website Development Portfolio’?
Have you tried using the tag for that category:
“Display posts that have this tag, using tag slug”:
$query = new WP_Query( array( 'tag' => 'cooking' ) );
Or Simple Taxonomy Query:
“Display posts tagged with bob, under people custom taxonomy”:
$args = array(
'post_type' => 'post',
'tax_query' => array(
'taxonomy' => 'people',
'field' => 'slug',
'terms' => 'bob',
$query = new WP_Query( $args );
You have probably tried that already, just my two cents.
This is the solution that I found works
<?php //Display posts that are in the child category Website Development Portfolio ?>
<?php $my_query = new WP_Query( array( 'posts_per_page' => 10, 'category__and' => array( 18 ) ) ); ?>
<?php while ($my_query->have_posts()) : $my_query->the_post(); ?>
<section id="" class="col-lg-4 col-md-4 col-sm-6 col-xs-12">
<h2><?php the_title(); ?></h2>
<?php the_excerpt(); ?>
<?php $PreviewImage = get_field('design_image_preview'); ?>
<img class="" src="<?php echo $PreviewImage['url'] ?>" alt="<?php echo $PreviewImage['alt'] ?>"/>
<?php endwhile; ?>
(Not so skilled in WP, but I guess the category ID was “18”?)
