Display WordPress category name above posts list (display term as heading)

With Content Views Pro, you can display category name above posts list easily (like this).

# Display a term above posts list

Let’s add new View to start. Here are some simple steps to do:

  • Enable the Taxonomy (Categories, Tags…) in Filter Settings >> Advance
  • Select the taxonomy you want to use, for example: Category
  • Select the term (a category, a tag…) you want to show as heading, above the posts list
  • Select the option Show (first) term as heading of output for the “Output modification” setting

# Display many terms above their posts list

How about display multiple categories, tags… above their posts list like this:

Category #1
     post 1, 2, 3, ...

Category #2
     post 1, 2, 3, ...

Category #3
     post 1, 2, 3, ...

?

For example: you want to show each of 3 categories Business, People, Building above their posts list. Here are steps to do:

  • Create a View, follow 4 steps in section I. above for a category.
  • Use following shortcodes for 2 other categories:
    [pt_view id=VIEWID cat=CATEGORY_SLUG_HERE]
    [pt_view id=VIEWID cat=CATEGORY_SLUG_HERE]
    (replace VIEWID with ID of the View which you’ve created)

    For tag, please use this shortcode format:
    [pt_view id=VIEWID tag=TAG_SLUG_HERE]
    [pt_view id=VIEWID tag=TAG_SLUG_HERE]

    For custom taxonomy, please use this shortcode format:
    [pt_view id=VIEWID taxonomy=NAME_OF_TAXONOMY terms=SLUG_OF_TERM]

# Show the “View all” link beside the category name

Please add this code to Custom JS field (the right textarea) in Content Views >> Settings page:

$('.pt-cv-term-heading a').each(function(){
$(this).html($(this).html() + '<span style="float:right">View all</span>');
});

Thank you,
