WOOF :: term( Mixed $id = null, String $taxonomy = null )


  • A term object if the term is found.
  • WOOF_Silent An object for silent failure if the term cannot be found.

Retrieves a MEOW_Term object for the given id and taxonomy arguments. This method is very flexible in that the id argument can be a number of different values which would uniquely identify a term (see argument description).

Returns a WOOF_Silent object for silent failure if a term cannot be found for the given taxonomy.

Note: if the id argument is not provided, this method will attempt to return the current term being displayed (if any – only applies to category, tag, and taxonomy templates).



  • Mixed $id = null

    The “id” to search for – this argument is flexible in that it can be any one of the following:

    • A term slug – e.g. “press-release”. This requires a taxonomy to be specified.
    • A term name – e.g. “Press Release”, which is a fallback search if the slug search fails. This requires a taxonomy to be specified.
    • An term ID – e.g. 20, or even “20”. This can be specified with or without a taxonomy
    • A WOOF_Term or MEOW_Term object (which will simply return itself).
  • String $taxonomy = null

    The taxonomy of the term to search for. This is required when the id argument is a string slug or name, but is optional for an ID search.
