Sorry I'm new to taxonomies & trying to learn quickly.

I've set up sectors and assigned a post to it. If I go to the post, I can see the URL has www.mydomain.com/sectors/auto/

How can I get auto from the URL? Thanks

  • Hi... try printing the query_vars using the filter 'query_vars', and look for the key with the value. Aug 19 '11 at 15:42

I think you are looking for get_query_var

$term_slug = get_query_var( 'term' );
$taxonomyName = get_query_var( 'taxonomy' );
$current_term = get_term_by( 'slug', $term_slug, $taxonomyName );

Try this:

$sector = get_queried_object()->name;
