A few months ago I wrote a post on how to integrate Isotope with WordPress. Since then, I’ve received some requests on showing how to limit it to one category. In this tutorial I will show how to add the Isotope code and scripts to a template, filtering the posts that belong to one category by it’s sub-categories.
You will notice that most steps are the same as with the original tutorial, but I have left them here, so people won’t have to go back and forth between articles. I’ll highlight the lines of code that differ from the first article.

Update: I wrote a part 2 for this tutorial that shows how to use one category’s subcategories to filter posts.

Update (10/11/2016): I added some escaping to the examples. Better safe than sorry.
When creating an image custom field in Advanced Custom Fields, it gives you the option of setting the “Return Value” as an “Image Object”.

I’m working on a site were users will have extra fields in their profiles, among them, a user picture. To achieve this, I used Advanced Custom Fields. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!
The problem was that when a user went to upload or chose a file for their picture profile, it showed all media files, from every user. Not ideal for this particular site (we are using some custom roles that let people upload pictures, but not create entries). Continue reading My new best friend: ajax_query_attachments_args
