Kihn: Vilkku: p.s. it’s pretty good to start your support request with this specific info! Dont you think we could have answered this much more quickly had we known 1 you already tried add_dashboard_widget and 2 that you were specifically looking to plug it in there with the welcome widget?
Grassmyer: Vilkku: wordpress dashboard widgets ARE metaboxes
Kirkner: Scavotto: I disagree. I asked specifically about add_meta_box and why it wasn’t working, my intentions did not play any part in this in my opinion, rather they just sidetracked you. I also did not mention the welcome widget at all, you did
Cissell: Specifically https://codex.----escape_autolink_uri:a03ded6cd97ffffa8f7b4e1454f3eecc----.org/Plugin_API/Filter_Reference/wp_title
Jeng: Cissell: global $post, perhaps?
Aubut: Cissell: are you saying you have a list of posts displayed on a page and you want that page’s ID?
Cissell: That returns the first id of the list of posts
Jaques: Scavotto: meta boxes can be displayed on other admin pages as well, in addition. Say I wanted to display the meta box on the pages page, I could not get that to work either for I ***ume the same reasons I could not get it to display on the dashboard
Cissell: Yep, got a list of posts, but want the parent page id that its contained
Mackie: Anyone know how I can retrieve the number of posts in a category using only MySQL? I can’t figure out what table it’s stored in.
Ashauer: Cissell: get_the_ID should give you the specific page’s ID. but it depends on your code and how it’s structured and where you are calling this function
Fackler: Vilkku: what “pages” page? You meant he pages – edit screen?
Cissell: Same code in that wp_title codex; $page returns null
Cissell: Custom plugin, with only that piece of code
Celadon: Vilkku: either wya, dashboard widgets are literally metaboxes. The dashboard widgets api is a wrapper for meta boxes API
Cissell: This code: https://codex.----escape_autolink_uri:a03ded6cd97ffffa8f7b4e1454f3eecc----.org/Plugin_API/Filter_Reference/wp_title in a plugin all on it’s own
Nill: Scavotto, let me come back to you with another code example, just going to verify it behaves as expected for me first
Sadahiro: Cissell: i dont understand your purposes for this code example
Schnaible: Asm0deus here is a example using WP functions, https://----escape_autolink_uri:a03ded6cd97ffffa8f7b4e1454f3eecc----.org/support/topic/number-of-posts-per-category-1
Isidoro: Asm0deus second one down
Bitetto: Shouldn’t post data the terms ***ociated with the post be saved in wp_postmeta?
Mckenize: Cissell: is your actual goal to just change the wp_title for a specific page that has a nested loop?
Szwarc: I need to do it in sql
Cissell: End goal is to take the page ID and change the title based on custom meta. but i cannot get the page id returned is the problem
Twiss: Asm0deus: https://codex.----escape_autolink_uri:a03ded6cd97ffffa8f7b4e1454f3eecc----.org/Database_Description
Milman: It says wp_postmeta but theres not term data about the posts in there that i see
Crisanti: Cissell: and doing var_dump$page; gives you what? after the global is defined
Hampton: Cissell: and to be clear. this is a PAGE created in WordPress pages – add new page ?
Fiorella: Just 3 fields _encloseme and _editlast _editlock, Halcom about terms to post relationship
Solum: Cissell: what is the code for that page? is it a nested loop / two separate loops?
Jeng: Asm0deus: start at wp_tems in the diagram
Cissell: Just the default wp loop
Cissell: While have posts post blah blah
Simelton: Cissell: that doesnt make sense then. you said theres a list of posts on a page. you would need two loops there if that were the case
Telfair: Cissell: paste the code for the page in question please
Mccaffery: What connects wp_term_relationships with wp_posts? object_ID = ID?
Jeng: Make sure you pick up onlly published posts, not revisions
Pistoresi: Asm0deus you will nee _posts , _terms , term_relationships
