I have a custom post type and a custom taxonomy located in a plugin. In writing my output loop for the CPT, I'm trying to output all the custom tax items assigned to the CPT items at the top of the page before outputting each individual CPT item.
This is what I'm hoping to achieve:
tax 1 | tax 2 | tax 3 | tax 4 ...
wp_get_object_terms() is the best way to get at the tax items, but I have to pass in the
$post->ID or, in my case, an array of ID's as a parameter.
Is there a way to write only 1 loop which would grab the IDs, do its thing and them move on to output the CPT items, or do I have to write 2 loops, 1 which first builds the array of CPT post ID's to pass into the function and then a 2nd which outputs the CPT items? Am I missing something else entirely?
Thanks for your help!
