get_objects_in_term - identify matching terms
|Reported by:||leepowers||Owned by:|
get_objects_in_term is great for viewing taxonomy relationships for non-posts. However the return value is too limited for certain use cases. For When fetching object_ids for multiple terms the return value doesn't inform as to the matching term.
For instance this query:
$object_ids = get_objects_in_term(array(55, 66, 77, 88, 99), "my_custom_taxonomy");
Might return an array of object_ids as follows:
array(101, 202, 303, 404);
However there's no way to tell which term a particular object_id matched. Did object 101 match term 77? Or maybe it was term 99? Or both?
I've created a modified version of get_objects_in_term which will addresses this issue. I'll submit a patch, but am wondering if there's another way to achieve this functionality.
