Using Specific Taxonomy on Slider

  • moshguy


    I’ve seen posts showing a filter to show only specific post types in the slider. Is there an equally easy way to show only a specific taxonomy in the slider? I have a taxonomy that is specifically for special items for sale. It would be a wonderful way to show off those items. Any help on the matter would be greatly appreciated.

    Just set the slider to display posts of that category.

    (I’m assuming that “category” is what you mean when you say “taxonomy”. If not, please explain.)



    Kenneth, I appreciate your quick response.

    I’m using custom post types and created their own taxonomies. The problem is that the Graphene slider will only show categories from regular posts, not for custom post types. I used a filter to only show specific post types in the slider but I would like to narrow it down to taxonomies from that custom post type.

    You can use the graphene_slider_args filter hook to modify the final arguments for getting the posts for the slider:

    function my_graphene_slider_args( $args ){
    $args['tax_query'] = array(
    'taxonomy' => 'my_tax',
    'field' => 'id'
    'terms' => 9999
    if ( isset( $args['category__in'] ) ) unset( $args['category__in'] );

    return $args;
    add_filter( 'graphene_slider_args', 'my_graphene_slider_args' );

    You might need to tweak the argument array further, depending on your slider settings. Use disect_it( $args ); to print out what’s contained in the argument array.

    That is outstanding! Exactly what I needed. Thanks for all the help.
