I have three loops in my theme that I want to use to get menu items for a lunch, dinner and wine list menu. The first loop worked fine but when I added the second one, the system broke. I did some searching here and they all say not to use $post. So I didn't but I still can't get it to work. I tried adding wp_reset_postdata as seen in the codex and decided to try wp_reset_query() for giggles after doing some searching here but it's still not working. I have been trying to change the variable names but still no joy.
$lunchargs = array( 'posts_per_page' => 5, 'category' => 'lunch', 'post_status' => 'publish', 'order' => 'ASC', ); ?> $lunchposts = get_posts($lunchargs); foreach( $lunchposts as $post) : setup_postdata( $post ); ?> <li><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></li> <?php endforeach; wp_reset_postdata(); wp_reset_query()?>
So I repeat the code above three times changing the varaibles in all three loops like so
foreach( $dinnerpost as $post) : setup_postdata( $post ); foreach( $winelist as $post) : setup_postdata( $post );
I also found on here that some say not to use the category slug in the $args but I need to use the slug because I am not sure what the ID of the category will be in the end.
