Listing the taxonomies in the frontend

If you want to have a custom list in your theme, then you can pass the taxonomy name into the the_terms() function in the Loop, like so:

1
the_terms( $post->ID, 'meeting', 'Meeting: ', ', ', ' ' );

That displays the list of Genres attached to each post.

Querying by taxonomy

Creating a taxonomy generally automatically creates a special query variable using WP_Query() class, which we can use to retrieve posts based on. For example, to pull a list of posts that have “Monthly” as a “meeting” taxonomy in them, we will use:

1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
10
11
$args = array(
	'post_type' => 'post',
	'tax_query' => array(
		array(
			'taxonomy' => 'meeting',
			'field'    => 'slug',
			'terms'    => 'monthly',
		),
	),
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );
