Multiple Loops in Category pages in WordPress

  • # April 24, 2013 at 8:26 am

    Hi,

    I was looking at this bit of code -> http://digwp.com/2010/03/wordpress-post-content-multiple-columns/ and specically step 4.

    Now that’s perfect for what I want to achieve for my home page of articles, but I want to also use multiple loops on each category page too.

    How can I do that?

    Just add category parameters to the queries.

    [Check Here](https://codex.wordpress.org/Class_Reference/WP_Query “Check Here”)
    Under “Category Parameters”

    what if I don’t know the category id?

    category_name using the slug not good enough ?

    Sorry, I’m just confused as to what to put. WordPress is still pretty heavy going for me.

    Do I add it to query_posts(); code?

    That would be correct. Something like

    < ?php query_posts('showposts=5&category_name=my-category-slug'); ?>

    Right, suppose my next question is, how do I make the my-category-slug dynamic?
