    Hi,
    Good morning.

    I created a Query Loop that relies on Taxonomies to display.
    I did this for both OPEN positions and not-Open positions. (Open and Closed)
    However – only ONE post of each type appears – even though I have “10” in each of the Query Loop
    “Posts Per Page” parameter.

    View post on imgur.com

    Can’t figure out WHY no more than one post of each is appearing in OPEN and Closed.

    Thank you for any help!

    I have figured it out. :^)

    I really was not understanding the role of some of the taxonomy settings. I had radio buttons IN my Custom Fields – when I really needed check boxes in my Taxonony area

    I still really want the radio buttons – within the custom field – to work. But I guess it is not set up to do that. Or I did not set it up properly.

    David – thanks for the response.

    Follow-up question:
    Can a taxonomy exist ONLY in a Custom Field and not ALSO in a meta-box?

    To me – I do not understand why a Taxonomy cant be controlled by a Custom Field alone.
    Thoughts?

    I have the taxonomy in the Custom Fields.

    It also appears in the Meta Box area.

    I can control the taxonomy in the Custom Field.

    Is there any way to hide the Meta Box?

    David,

    I apologize for reopening this – but have a related issue.

    Taxonomies are categorizing properly. However – the taxonomy itself is not rendering the NAME of the Taxonomy. Something that I have mistakenly thought would be a default function.

    When I call the I call the post_meta: job_status – I was expecting to get the Taxonomy Names returned “Position Open” or Position Closed”.

    Instead – I get the Taxonomy ID’s (38 for open, and 39 for closed).

    CPT offered some code in their thread (link listed privately below)

    But not understanding it the code offered is correct – or where it goes.
    Was hoping you could look at the info and point to where I need to add code.

    Thank you!

    How are you adding the Custom Fields to the site ?

    ACF – but the fields, now, do not include the taxonomy. Which I decided was easier to stop fighting the Custom Field Vs. Meta Box battle from earlier in the thread…

    The ACF are called by a Query Loop on a page.

    Ok, select that block and change its Dynamic Data to:
    CONTENT SOURCE -> List of Terms
    TAXONOMY -> Position Open or Closed

    Excelsior!!
    Did you change any settings? Or was it just the fact I was not picking the correct content source?

    Thank you very much!

    I made no changes.
    Its just the content source had to change.

    You’re welcome

    Awesome – I had been following a great YouTube video, and it never dawned on me to deviate from the instructions. I appreciate you taking the time to take a look. I am really enjoying GP and am thinking the learning curve will smooth out soon. Really learning a lot.

    Thanks David!
