I would like to know how can I filter by a created custom field.
My case: 1 custom type: ZONE, has many HOTELS.
I have a foreach PHP -> foreach ($zone->incoming_hotels as $h) {

I need to filter by custom field: TYPE.
I have tried
but is not working…

Thanks in advance

Hey there,

So you have a Zone custom type with a multi-item field set called “HOTELS”, and inside each of those there is a field called “TYPE”?

Can you let me know what code you’ve tried so far?

1 custom type: ZONE
1 custom type: HOTEL
So, 1 zone has many HOTELS.

To catch all the hotels from one zone we have this:
foreach PHP -> foreach ($zone->incoming_hotels as $h) {

But, I want to get only hotels with a specific type, maybe like this:
foreach PHP -> foreach ($zone->incoming_hotels(‘type=AAAA’) as $h) {

How can I do this?

Any solution?
This is fixed in the new version (1.1)?

Hi, apologies for not replying on this sooner.

The arguments you pass to the “incoming_hotels” (virtual) method can be anything that WP_Query accepts. So you should be able to construct a meta_query to do this, something like this:

This example assumes your field set is called “fields”, with a “type” field.

As an aside, the only restriction in WP_Query for “incoming” methods is that you cannot make use of the “post__in” argument, as the incoming method first finds the correct IDs, and then uses this argument to get that list of hotels.

Let me know if this works.
