I have two taxonomy : brand and product. In single sidebar I am displaying the brand and product of the post in the sidebar but I would like to display all the other product of the current taxonomy term brand. This is what I'am going to try but I have no error and it return nothing :

// get current taxonomy product term
$post_product = get_the_term_list($post->ID, 'product', '', ', ');
echo 'Product : '.$post_marque;

// get current taxonomy brand term
$post_brand = get_the_term_list($post->ID, 'brand', '', ', '); 
echo 'Brand : '.$post_brand;

// make the custom query
  $do_not_duplicate = $post->ID;
            $taxquery = new WP_Query( $taxquery_args ); while($taxquery->have_posts()) : $taxquery->the_post(); 

            if( $post->ID == $do_not_duplicate ) continue;

            $taxquery_args = array(

                'post_type'      => 'any', 
                'posts_per_page' => 10,

                'tax_query' => array(

                    'relation' => 'AND',
                        'taxonomy' => 'brand',
                        'field' => 'slug',
                        'terms' => $post_marque
                        'taxonomy' => 'product',
                        'field' => 'slug',
                        'terms' => $post_product


            endwhile;  wp_reset_postdata(); ?>

How to return all taxonomy product terms execpt current post term who have current taxonomy brand term of the post ? Is it possible to return term->name and term-slug ?


This is a screenshot, for exemple current post will have taxonomy term brand = Antec and taxonomy product term = P280 and I would like to have all product terms with brand term 'Antec' by term->name except 'P280', so the result shoud return this terms : iSO, GX700, etc...

You are using get_the_term_list which generates an HTML string of taxonomy terms associated with a post and given taxonomy.

Try instead to feed the terms input parameters of the WP_Query with an array like:

'terms' => array( 11, 22, 33 ),


'terms' => array( 'term1', 'term2', 'term3' ),

In your code example you have

'terms' => $post_product

so you could use something like this

$post_product_terms = get_the_terms( $post->ID, 'product' );
$post_product = array();
foreach( $post_product_terms as $term ){
    $post_product[] = $term->slug;    

to construct the $post_product array.

If you want to exclude some terms you can use

'operator' => 'NOT IN',

so your example could be:

    'taxonomy' => 'product',
    'field' => 'slug',
    'terms' => $post_product,
    'operator' => 'NOT IN',

Hi, thanks for your answer. The problem is that I don't know ID of the terms and they will always be different. I've tried your solution but it return only the ID of the current post term. I would like to have all the others terms by name. – david May 28 '13 at 11:54
I updated the answer. Since you are filtering the terms with the slug, I changed $term->term_id to to $term->slug. So want to exclude the current post product terms? Then you can use the operator parameter, see the updated answer. – birgire May 28 '13 at 12:17
I have the same result, but it return the post term by slug. The post has only one product term, so if I make [code]$post_product_terms = get_the_terms( $post->ID, 'product' ); it constructs an array with only one term but not with all others posts terms ? – david May 28 '13 at 13:39
this sounds normal, if the post has one product term, the array should only contain one slug element. Did you then add the above 'operator' part into the WP_Query to do the exclusion? – birgire May 28 '13 at 14:10
yes I did it but it always give me current post term – david May 28 '13 at 15:00
