How to Show WordPress Posts With a Specific Taxonomy Term

We had an interesting question from a TaxoPress user: “Do your plugins provide any method for displaying a list of posts assigned to a category?”

For example, if you have 10 posts with the term “Fruit”, this feature would display those 10 posts. This is possible with the default taxonomy archives but those are pages don’t allow much flexibility on where you display the results.

In this guide, I’ll introduce two plugins that can show posts with one or more specific terms.

Option #1: The Tag Groups plugin

This plugin has recently joined the TaxoPress family. Click here for more details on the Tag Groups move. We recommend this option because it’s updated and supported by the TaxoPress team.

Tag Groups has a “Post List” feature. This is available as a Gutenberg block and a shortcode. If you don’t use Gutenberg, click here for the shortcode details.

When you add a Gutenberg block, search for the “Post List” option.

For this guide, you’re looking for the “Filters” area in the sidebar. Under the “Filters” area, you can choose posts with a specific tag or category. Click here for a full guide to the Content Display block.
