Retrieving posts by category on Wordpress Archive

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am editing a Wordpress child theme. I have an existing page template which displays all documents from the post type 'publications'.

 

I simply want to display a single category (id=29) from these posts.

I have been given the following code but the posts are not displaying on the page -

 

 

<?php $posts_per_page_option = ot_get_option( 'wpl_publications_per_page' ); ?>
<?php $posts_per_page = ( !empty( $posts_per_page_option ) ? ot_get_option( 'wpl_publications_per_page' ) : 10 ); ?>
<?php $args = array(
'post_type' => 'post_publications',
'post_status' => 'publish',
'posts_per_page' => 5,
'cat' => 29,
'paged'=> $paged
); ?>

Any help much appreciated, thanks.

You're not actually querying the database in the code you've posted. You can create a new WP_Query object, or use the get_posts() function, like so:

$posts = get_posts($args);

// or

$qry = new WP_Query($args);

var_dump $qry and you should see your posts.

Sorry I should have posted the full code:

 

It displays all the posts if I remove 'cat' => 29, from the array but will not display the posts from a category.

 

Any more ideas?

 

Thanks

 

 

<?php $posts_per_page_option = ot_get_option( 'wpl_publications_per_page' ); ?>
				<?php $posts_per_page = ( !empty( $posts_per_page_option ) ? ot_get_option( 'wpl_publications_per_page' ) : 10 ); ?>
	<?php $args = array(
'post_type' => 'post_publications',
'post_status' => 'publish',
'posts_per_page' => 5,
'cat' => 29,
'paged'=> $paged
); ?>

				<?php $wp_query = null;
				$wp_query = new WP_Query( $args );

				if ( $wp_query->have_posts() ) : while ( $wp_query->have_posts() ) : $wp_query->the_post();?>
					<?php
						$publication_file = get_post_meta(get_the_ID(), 'wpl_publication_file', true);
						$publication_file_size = get_post_meta($post->ID, 'wpl_publication_file_size', true);
					?>
					<article class="list pub">
						<div class="short-content">
							<?php if ( has_post_thumbnail() ) { ?>
								<figure>
									<a title="<?php the_title(); ?>" href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>">
										<?php the_post_thumbnail('publications-thumb'); ?>
										<div class="mask radius">
											<div class="mask-square"><i class="icon-download"></i></div>
										</div>
									</a>
								</figure>
							<?php } ?>
