I have this custom post:

add_action('init', 'eveniment_register');

function eveniment_register() {
    $args = array(
        'label' => __('Evenimente'),
        'singular_label' => __('Eveniment'),
        'public' => true,
        'show_ui' => true,
        'capability_type' => 'post',
        'hierarchical' => false,
        'rewrite' => true,
        'supports' => array( 'title', 'editor', 'thumbnail', 'excerpt', 'comments' ),
        'taxonomies'    => array('category','post_tag','post_thumbnail')


    register_post_type( 'eveniment' , $args );

And all those custom-posts have a category with ID=5.

In category-5.php I want to show all custom posts from that category.

How I did it with normal posts with:

while (have_posts()) : the_post(); 

doesn't work with custom posts.

Any ideas? Thanks!


Don't change the main query. You can simply achieve what you want by using pre_get_posts.Fall back to the default loop in category-5.php and add the following to your functions.php

function include_category_cpt( $query ) {
    if ( !is_admin() && $query->is_category( '5' ) && $query->is_main_query() ) {
        $query->set( 'post_type', 'eveniment' );
        $query->set( 'post_status', 'publish' );
        $query->set( 'posts_per_page', '-1' );
        $query->set( 'ignore_sticky_posts', '1' );

add_action( 'pre_get_posts', 'include_category_cpt' );

Also, please note, caller_get_posts has long time been depreciated and as replaced with posts_per_page



I solved it like that:

$type = 'eveniment';
  'post_type' => $type,
  'post_status' => 'publish',
  'posts_per_page' => -1,
  'caller_get_posts'=> 1);

$my_query = null;
$my_query = new WP_Query($args);
if( $my_query->have_posts() ) {
  while ($my_query->have_posts()) : $my_query->the_post(); ?>
    <p><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title_attribute(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></p>
wp_reset_query();  // Restore global post data stomped by the_post().
