I know that the following mysql query produces the exact results I wish to echo within single.php:
SELECT meta_value FROM `wp_taxonomymeta` WHERE `taxonomy_id` =565 AND `meta_key` LIKE 'baseurl'
First, I need to be able to use $wpdb to output that result, and no matter what I try I can't get it to work. My final try:
<?php global $wpdb; $toc = $wpdb->get_row(" SELECT meta_value FROM `wp_taxonomymeta` WHERE `taxonomy_id` =565 AND `meta_key` LIKE 'baseurl' "); echo $toc; ?>
produced the following error:
Catchable fatal error: Object of class stdClass could not be converted to string in /wp-content/themes/new/single.php on line 22
Second... and it's important. The value 565 I am using for the taxonomy_id was only for testing... the actual value I need to insert in place of the number 565 can be displayed in single.php using:
<?php $term = get_term_by('id', $termID, 'dataset'); echo $term->term_id; ?>
For reference, so you can understand what I'm trying to do... I have assigned a custom field to a taxonomy and am trying to get the results of that custom field to display in single.php... while I found a plugin (Ultimate CMS) that would do this for me, it also chooses to display a filter for all taxonomies at the top of my Post Screen... when you have 50,000+ rows in your taxonomy that causes way to much page load in the admin, and I can't find a way to suppress it.
Any help with my NOOB try at coding would be appreciated!
