I'm trying to display the taxonomy slug from the term ID, thus my current code is like so:

<?php $catinfo = get_category(array_pop(get_sub_field('sector_selector'))); ?>
<?php print $catinfo->slug; ?>

which isn't printing anything, a var_dump($catinfo); produces the following:

array(1) { [0]=> int(59) }

In theory <?php print $catinfo->slug; ?> should print the taxonomy slug, but it isn't? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

You can use get_term_by() for this

$term_id = array_pop(get_sub_field('sector_selector'));
$catinfo = get_term_by( 'id', $term_id, 'name_of_the_taxonomy' );
print $catinfo->slug;
  • and how would this be implemented in the example above? As I can't seem to get it to work? Aug 17, 2014 at 20:09
  • @user1374796 I have edited my answer, I am assuming that array_pop(get_sub_field('selector_selector')) returns term id as per your question.

  • yes this is what I did, but I keep getting Missing argument 3 for get_term_by() etc etc, error message. I'm not sure why? Aug 17, 2014 at 20:16
  • @user1374796 You have to give the name of the taxonomy as the third argument.
