I am developing one project and in this project i have to display all the posts related to particular category name.

I have searched a lot but i haven't got any idea to implement this.

How can i do this so that i can display all the posts from particular category/term

Just use WP_Query() to generate your custom query, using the category parameters.

Assuming you know (or know how to get) the ID of the specific category, as $catid:

$category_query_args = array(
    'cat' => $catid

$category_query = new WP_Query( $category_query_args );

Note: you could also pass the category slug to the query, via category_name, instead of cat.

Now, just output your loop:

if ( $category_query->have_posts() ) : while $category_query->have_posts() : $category_query->the_post();
// Loop output goes here
endwhile; endif;

That would depend on when and how exactly you want to use it - but generally speaking you can either use a custom query , or simply use

if in_category('my_cat_name_or_ID') {
//do whatever

  • yes this will work and i have done in other way

Below code will fetch post title from particular category name.

      $myposts = get_posts(array(
      'showposts' => 8, //add -1 if you want to show all posts
      'post_type' => 'your-post-type',
      'tax_query' => array(
                        'taxonomy' => 'your-taxonomy',
                        'field' => 'slug',
                        'terms' => 'term-name' //pass your term name here

        foreach ($myposts as $mypost) {
        // echo $mypost->post_title . '<br/>';
        // echo $mypost->post_content . '<br/>';
        // echo  $mypost->ID . '<br/><br/>';
        echo '<li class="faq"> <p class="title"><a href="' . get_permalink($mypost) . '">' . $mypost->post_title . '</a></p></li>';} ?>

WP_Query's tax_query is, far and away, going to be the most flexible way to implement this. If you make the question a bit more specific, I should be able to crank out some sample code for you to get you going.


You can use a plugin (WordPress Category Posts) for that.

WordPress Category Posts is a plugin for WordPress that creates a linked list of the posts in a specific category.

Use the following code wherever you want to list the posts for a category:


Many thanks.

 while (have_posts()) : the_post();
