Is it possible to apply a meta_query to one specific post type in a query with multilple post types?
I have two post types, news and events :
- A news has no custom fields.
- An event has two custom fields : start-date and end-date.
I want to display news and events on the same page, ideally with one single query.
One important fact is that events have to be ordered by end-date and that only future or current events have to be displayed.
Here’s the query args I am trying :
$args = array( 'post_type' => array( 'news', 'events' ), 'meta_key' => 'end-date', 'orderby' => 'meta_value', 'order' => 'ASC', 'meta_query' => array( array( 'key' => 'end-date', 'value' => date ( 'Ymd' ), 'type' => 'NUMERIC', 'compare' => '>=' ) ) );
That works fine for events alone, but doesn’t when I add news to the post types.
The problem seems to be that I specified ‘meta_key’ and ‘meta_query’ parameters which are only present on events, as a result all the news are left out in the results.
So my question is, is there a way to target a meta_query to one specific post_type in one same query ?
