I trying to get all the latest post from every category, but I discovered I must ignore one of them. I don't want to show it at all. My problem is I don't know what syntax to write ifelse in this code.

Here is my code :


  $latest_cat_post_6 = 
   new WP_Query( array('posts_per_page' => 1,'category__in'=>$output_categories[$i]));

   if($latest_cat_post_6 == 48){
             //do nothung 
             } else {
  if( $latest_cat_post_6->have_posts() ) :
  while( $latest_cat_post_6->have_posts() ) : $latest_cat_post_6->the_post();

Your code doesn't make sense to me. The easiest way to do this is to use get_categories() to get all the categories, and use the exclude parameter to exclude the category that you don't need. You can then feed that back into a new WP_QUERY


$categories = get_categories( 'exclude=ID_OF_CATEGORY')

foreach ($categories as $category) {

  $new_query = new WP_Query( 'posts_per_page=1&cat=' . $category->cat_ID );

    if($new_query->have_posts()) : 
      while($new_query->have_posts()) : $new_query->the_post();




  • it is work with me ..... yes your one easier but you don't answer how to ignore or skip one of category in your cod

  • I did explain it, please reread my answer carefully. $categories = get_categories( 'exclude=ID_OF_CATEGORY'). It is here that you must swop ID_OF_CATEGORY with the ID of the category that you want to exclude Aug 6 '14 at 9:33
