Get category slug and display it on a query_post
I just read “How to create option page for wordpress theme” in wp.tutsplus.com – I have a problem with getting categories .
there is two parts to my question
– Part A – Get category slug and display it
In this tutorial there is a select option as follow :
$options = array( "section" => "select_section", "id" => WPTUTS_SHORTNAME . "_select_input", "title" => __( 'Select (type one)', 'wptuts_textdomain' ), "desc" => __( 'A regular select form field', 'wptuts_textdomain' ), "type" => "select", "std" => "3", "choices" => array( "1", "2", "3")
Now, instead of the 1-2-3 choices , I want to return category slugs to display it to user – can someone please modify this code so it return the slugs for categories created on the site?
– Part B – Display category slug in query_posts format
The typical returning value for above code is this :
<?php echo $wptuts_option['wptuts_select_input']; ?>
I use this code for my query post :
<?php query_posts('showposts=1&category_name=news'); ?>
where the “news” is the category “slug” – not name of the category
now , can someone please modify the code so it gets the category slug based on the option chose in the theme option page ?
I am stuck in fixing this problem and I looked every where, but cant find a solution
