Re: Placing Other Categories in the Featured-Section :: Reply by Joern

in Arthemia the query for category Headline is like this:


<?php query_posts("showposts=1&category_name=Headline"); ?>

If you know the ID of this category (here as sample ID=4) you could use:


<?php query_posts("showposts=1&cat=4"); ?>

Coming to Featured section, normally like this:


<?php query_posts("showposts=4&category_name=Featured"); $i = 1; ?>

this you could replace with the ID (here 6) instead of category name:


<?php query_posts("showposts=4&cat=6"); $i = 1; ?>

It might be possible you think category_name refers to the display name of the category?

This is wrong, actually you should use the category slug in here.
In WordPress Support Forum http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Ref … uery_posts you can read under Category Parameters:

category_name (string) – use category slug (NOT name)
Personally I would use the ID thing "cat (int) – use category id" like

query_posts( ‚cat=4‘ );
to get exactly what I want, regardless of name or slug as they might be different
Did it help?
