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.

MasterPress 1.4.1 is now available

27th May 2024

This update addresses backwards compatibility issues that were introduced in the previous update. There were some edge cases where PHP 7 had issues and it didn’t work at all on PHP 5.6. We have now changed it so that the PHP 8 compatibility changes will now only affect PHP 8 and will be more thorough… 

Plugin Requirements

MasterPress requires a minimum of WordPress version 4.9, MySQL 5.6, and PHP version 5.6.20.

We also recommend that PHP is configured to use a memory limit of 64MB per request (128MB may be required for sites with higher complexity).

This plug-in is not compatible with the hosted service.
