This WordPress function requires the CPT-onomy class.

You have been redirected from to my new home at WP Dreamer! I moved all my content over so you should be able to find everything you're looking for. If not, please let me know!


Retrieve the IDs of the objects who are tied to a valid CPT-onomy and term.


 $cpt_onomy->get_objects_in_term( int|array $term_ids, string|array $cpt_onomies, string|array $args );


$term_ids (integer|array) (required)
Default: none
Term id or array of term ids of terms that will be used.

$cpt_onomies (string|array) (required)
Default: none
String of CPT-onomy name or Array of string values of CPT-onomy names.

$args (string|array) (optional)
Default: none
Change the order of the object_ids, either ASC or DESC.
For information on how to customize the $args parameter, refer to the WordPress codex.

Return Values

(array|WP_Error) If the CPT-onomy does not exist, then WP_Error will be returned. On success the array can be empty meaning that there are no $object_ids found or it will return the $object_ids found.


Note: You can also use a taxonomy query with the Loop to achieve the same results.


$objects = $cpt_onomy->get_objects_in_term( get_the_id(), 'actors' );

$args = array(
   'post_type' => 'movies',
   'post__in' => $objects,
   'orderby' => 'title',
   'order' => 'ASC',

query_posts( $args );
if ( have_posts() ) :
      while ( have_posts() ) : the_post();
         ?><li><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" title="<?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></li><?php
