Introducing Query Tags, Query for the Current Logged In User

Today we’re introducing a new feature to Conductor called query tags. This is a feature that will let you query content for the current logged in user. This type of functionality has long been requested by our customers. We’re happy to announce that these types of queries are now possible in Conductor! Query tags are supported on all post types and Ninja Forms entries.

Update to the latest version of Conductor and the Conductor Query Builder Add-On to start using query tags in your queries. You’ll also need to update the Ninja Forms Add-On if you plan to use query tags on Ninja Forms entries. Read on to learn more about the new query tags feature.

How to display Custom Post Types in WordPress

Custom Post Types make WordPress a true content management system.

You can structure and organize content beyond pages and posts, which WordPress serves up by default, but lacks in the creation of custom content. Want a collection of books or team members? No problem, CPT’s can do that. You can even include “custom fields” which you can image are just fields of specific data or content, per CPT. An example would be something like having a “Team” CPT with custom fields for each team member’s social media links, and e-mail fields. Stuff you want to live outside of the typical editor.

Fun stuff — but — the act of creating & displaying your CPT’s, isn’t something that WordPress is setup to do out of the box, for the average user. You’re going to need to have a handle on some basic coding skills, if you’re planning on doing this the manual way. This is great practice for those of you that want to take your WordPress development skills to the next level.
