I have custom post type and I want to have a menu where I combine category or categories from default Wordpress post type and from my custom post type.

Let's say I have these categories

  • sport, books, movies, any in default post type
  • sport, books, school, any in my custom post type

can I have a menu link where I would display

  • sport posts from both post types?
  • sport, books posts from default post type and any from my custom post type?

What I would suggest in this situation is that you create a "CUSTOM QUERY" to query the posts. Set this custom query into a page, then use Appearance > Menu's to add the page into your menu structure.

I hope this helps.

Just us query_posts or wp_query search them on the codex mate. – Xavier Apr 4 '11 at 0:19
