Create a custom taxonomy’s term form

WordPress does not provide a hook or any API/function which allows us to move that form, or prevent it from being generated and added to the HTML source. But if you just wanted to visually hide that form, then it can easily be done using CSS, e.g. body.wp-admin.edit-tags-php #col-left { /* Hide the default form … Read more

WP Query filtering by custom category not showing all relevant posts

@jacob-peattie answered the question in his comment – I used the wrong key to set the number of posts my query generates. Swapping numberposts with posts_per_page solved the issue. Here’s the final query: @php $cats = get_sub_field(‘reviews_category’); // gets the custom field categories $args = array( ‘post_type’ => ‘testimonials’, ‘posts_per_page’ => -1, // this line … Read more

But, if you want to use %category%/%postname% with your … Read more

Is there a way to create a single rewrite rule to handle multiple variables depending on what is present?

I was able to make this work by using a power set function and then using that array to create individual rewrite rules. add_action(‘init’, ‘ebd_custom_rewrite_rules’); function ebd_custom_rewrite_rules() { $taxonomies = array( ‘engine-work’, ‘engine-specialty’, ‘application-specialty’, ‘machining-capability’, ‘dyno-facility’, ‘shop-region’); $combinations = ebd_get_array_power_set($taxonomies); $element_size_min = 2; foreach ($combinations as $combination) { if ($element_size_min <= count($combination)) { // skip … Read more
