I am now trying to figure out how to create the functions/ loops to pull my data from custom post types.
I have two post types(keys): And I need to pull the data from both to run my functions.
pods_product_grps: (p_high, p_med, p_low, m_type, group_id)
product_variant: (cogs, area, img_min, img_max, product_sku, grp_id)
Post are connected in 1 to many relationship where
So when displaying both the archive of
pods_product_grps and the single post that has a subloop of each
product_variant I need to display the calculated price based on a function I created.
The archive post only displays the lowest calculated price of the child variants.
Right now in my function, I have dummy variables to calculate the final price, but I need those to be populated automatically.
So I think I need to use this function:
but do I need to run that function for each key I need to define, or is there a way to make the key value an array and then return the values as individual variables.
//used in calculations-- dummy data $p_high= 3.2; //get_post_meta(get_the_ID(),$key, true); $p_med= 1.3; $p_low =1.1; $cogs= 11.53; $img_count =3; //number of selected images between $img_min and $img_max $img_cost= 10; //defined in settings page $area= 40; $client_lvl; //defined in user meta //used in product display $product_sku
I am not including the price calculation here, but it is in my other questions, and I can post it if needed.
I am assuming that after my function, I would then create an action hook for it to display in the content.
Would these variables extractions need to happen within the actual loop of say (
single-pods_product_grps.php) or would including them in the function itself work and then call via the action?
