Let's say I have a custom post type (e.g. product) and a custom taxonomy (e.g. prod_cat).
What I need to do is to get all my custom taxonomy terms associated with an object of my custom post type.
Here is how I do it inside the loop.

$terms = wp_get_object_terms(get_the_ID(),'prod_cat', array('fields'=>'slugs'));

But it's not working. It returns an empty array.


According to the function definition, wp_get_object_terms() throws an error if it can't find your taxonomy - and returns an empty array if there aren't any taxonomy terms attached to that post. Have you made sure you've assigned a prod_cat to the custom post you're looking at?

This may help: http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_terms

Have you tried something like this:

foreach ( get_terms( 'prod_cat' ) as $term ) {
    // Insert some code here
  • I don't understand what are you saying? – 2hamed Sep 1 '12 at 15:55
