On a recent project with Department Three I needed to use a Custom Post Type and Custom Taxonomies to organize some of the content. So, the taxonomy was Directors and the custom post type was Videos.From those I needed to use the taxonomy page to query videos for that specific director. I thought it would be pretty straightforward, but wasn't quite.
So, I solicited some help, and this is how you do it.
$director_slug = get_query_var('term'); /* Set $director_slug */ $wp_query = new WP_Query("director=" . $director_slug); /* OR */ query_posts(array('director' => $director_slug)); /* Where 'director' is the slug for the custom taxonomy you created and $director_slug is the slug for the specific director you're querying */
Thanks @cgrymala and @jaykz52 for the help.
