Thanks so much, this did exactly what I needed.
Quick explanation for anyone who might need this, since I ended up making a few changes:
For some reason using a single string in the query wouldn’t work and would display any post in the category listed first in the url. I wasn’t able to fix this, despite the string being correct. Instead I ended up passing two variables in the url:
And using two strings:
query_posts( array('category__and' => array ($my_category,$my_category2) ));
However I ended up wanting to using the category name instead of id, which can be done using code from this post:
Using that, here’s the final code that goes in your custom page template:
<?php $my_category = $_GET['my_cat']; $my_category2 = $_GET['my_cat2']; $myquery['tax_query'] = array( array( 'taxonomy' => 'category', 'terms' => array($my_category), 'field' => 'slug', ), array( 'taxonomy' => 'category', 'terms' => array($my_category2), 'field' => 'slug', ), ); query_posts($myquery); ?> <?php while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?> <!-- Do stuff... --> <?php endwhile; ?>
And you just use the category name in the link instead of id:
Thanks again for the help, really appreciate it!
