I have a hierarchical taxonomy
download-category from which I only want the posts with a parent term to show up:
$downloads_parent_posts = get_posts( array( 'post_type' => 'downloads', 'orderby' => 'title', 'order' => 'ASC', 'tax_query' => array( array( 'taxonomy' => 'download-category', 'terms' => $term->term_id, 'field' => 'term_id', 'include_children' => false ) ), ) );
This query works fine.
Now what I’d like to achieve is that only posts show up, that don’t have a child of the corresponding parent term applied.
For example I have a parent taxonomy term 'film' and a child term 'horror'. A post has both the parent term and the child term. This post should not show up in that query above.
Is it somehow possible to extend the query or add a condition which filters out the posts with a corresponding child term to the parent term?
Any help would be much appreciated.
