So my url/slug structure looks like this /toolkit-category/downloads/gui-kits. Within /downloads is other child categories/terms. I am trying to fetch the other siblings of gui-kits when on /gui-kits. "toolkit_category" is the name of my taxonomy that is acting as categories, built using PODS.

$queried_object = get_queried_object('term');
$tax = $queried_object->taxonomy;
$term = $queried_object->term_id;
$parent = $queried_object->parent;

$next_items = get_term_children( $term, $tax );

The above code doesnt work, returns nothing?

Any help is appreciated :)

Figured it out:

$carousel_items = get_queried_object();
$next_items = get_terms(
    array('parent' => $carousel_items->parent,)
