I’ve been doing a lot of behind-the-scenes stuff over at UltimateVelocity and I want to share one thing that caught me out quite a bit recently.
When getting all the posts associated with a custom taxonomy, you should use this codex example.
<?php $args = array( 'posts_per_page' => 8, 'orderby' => 'rand', 'post_type' => 'albums', 'genre' => 'jazz', 'post_status' => 'publish' ); $show_albums = get_posts( $args ); ?>
If you want to return all the posts, simply replace
'posts_per_page' => 8
'posts_per_page' => -1
Also, by default, the function only returns 5 posts, if if you omit to specify ‘posts_per_page’, you will see just 5 posts returned and you will be puzzled as to why.
