I have a Custom Field on a page named
I have a Custom Post Type called
top_banner. I add a few banners, note the IDs and then go back to the page and add a comma delimited list of IDs in the
banner_id_list custom field.
In my template, the plan is to check the current posts meta using get_post_meta(). That should produce a list of IDs that I can then take and use in get_posts() with
post__in = array() (see post__in).
Now on to the code, I'm missing something here but I'm a bit of a newb at this.
// get the banner_id_list based on the meta custom field for this page $banner_id_list = get_post_meta($post->ID, 'banner_id_list', true);
If I dump that I see the expected data, a list of IDs I entered into the custom field.
Now for my query:
$args = array( 'post_type' => 'top_banner', 'post_status' => 'publish', 'numberposts' => -1, 'order' => ASC, 'orderby' => menu_order, 'post__in' => array($banner_id_list) ); $banners = get_posts($args);
But there's something funky about using
$banner_id_list here. It's only getting a single record. But if I manually enter values in place of that variable, it works properly.
I think it's something simple/fundamental I'm missing, hope someone can help!
