WordPress: How to find all posts from a custom post type with specific custom field?

March 23, 2021

We’ll use same code as shown in this post to find all posts with a specific custom field value.

That is same as getting ACF values from custom post type.

This following example has complete code with WP_Query too.


// args
$args = array(
	'numberposts'	=> -1,
	'post_type'	=> 'guest_posts',
	'meta_key'	=> 'blog',
	'meta_value'	=> 'yogeshchauhan'

// query
$the_query = new WP_Query( $args );

<?php if( $the_query->have_posts() ): ?>
	<?php while( $the_query->have_posts() ) : $the_query->the_post(); ?>
			<a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>">
				<img src="<?php the_field('img_thumbnail'); ?>" />
				<?php the_title(); ?>
	<?php endwhile; ?>
<?php endif; ?>

<?php wp_reset_query();	 // Restore global post data stomped by the_post(). ?>
