I'm looping through a series of custom post types and then grouping those by a taxonomy term. That is working great, however I have not been able to order these groupings by
I used a var_dump to check the
term_id and they are as expected. In fact, no
orderby parameters are working at all - they are always ordered by the taxonomy term title. My taxonomy in this case is
issue_area with terms like 'Human Services', 'Education' and so on.
What am I missing here?
Here is the loop I am using:
<?php $terms = get_terms('issue_area'); // this is my custom taxonomy foreach( $terms as $term ): $termed = preg_replace('/\d/', '', $term->name ); // split out numbers ?> <h3 class="expert-term"><?php echo $termed; // Print the term name ?></h3> <?php var_dump($term->term_id); ?> <?php // this returns an int as expected ?> <ul class="experts"> <?php $posts = get_posts(array( 'post_type' => 'uwmc_experts', // my cpt 'taxonomy' => $term->taxonomy, 'term' => $term->slug, 'orderby' => $term->term_id, // tried: taxonomy_term_id 'order' => 'ASC', // tried DESC - no change 'numberposts' => -1, )); foreach($posts as $post): setup_postdata($post); ?> <?php if( have_rows('experts') ): ?> <?php // acf repeater ?> <?php while( have_rows('experts') ): the_row(); $image = get_sub_field('expert_photo'); $content = get_sub_field('expert_bio'); $areas = get_sub_field('areas'); ?> <li class="expert"> <?php // rest of repeater loop stuff here ?>
