I have been trying to group custom posts based on the taxonomy terms as shown in this article. Here is another similar post:

That does the job but I am worried about the number of WP_Query being looped. What if we had somewhat larger number of terms? In such case, there will be repetitive database queries.

Is there any better approach to get the same result.

I am thinking of using WordPress transient but that I guess is another side. Is doing raw sql queries any better?

    Good morning! Please don't post such questions on meta. Or grab a morning-coffee before posting if you already knew :) – kaiser Oct 7 '15 at 8:57

    I have a ton of posts using usort to sort posts according to post type, taxonomy terms and custom fields. Feel free to search my answers for usort. The solution you linked to is very expensive :-) – Pieter Goosen Oct 7 '15 at 11:12
