I was wondering if anyone knew how to have a different "featured post" based on it's category per category page? For example, if you are on the medical category page, you would see a medical post featured in a special div and so on.
assign the additional category 'featured' to the post in the category 'medical'.
in your category template, use a query with
'category__and' => array(3, 27)
example (assuming 'medical' is cat 3, and 'featured' is cat 27):
<?php $args = array( 'category__and' => array(3, 27), 'posts_per_page' => 1 ); $feature = new WP_Query( $args ); if( $feature->have_posts() ) : while( $feature->have_posts() ) : $feature->the_post(); ?> <div class="featured"> ANY POST OUTPUT <?php the_title(); ?> </div> <?php endwhile; endif; ?>
