Is there any way I can edit the below so that it will only get posts from the category if the post has been assigned as the primary category that Yoast SEO adds?
I only want to get posts that have been assigned to this category and that it has been marked as the primary category.
<?php $args = array( 'posts_per_page' => 6, 'offset' => 0, 'orderby' => 'date', 'order' => 'DESC', 'post_type' => 'post', 'post_status' => 'publish', 'suppress_filters' => true, 'tax_query' => array( array( 'taxonomy' => 'news-category', 'field' => 'slug', 'terms' => 'offers' ) ) ); $posts = get_posts( $args );
Managed to sort it, the primary category is added as post meta to the post, therefore you can pass through the following arguments:
'meta_key' => '_yoast_wpseo_primary_news-category', 'meta_value' => 1179,
Note: your meta key will be different since this is a custom taxonomy that I have set up, if you print the get_post_meta for your posts, you should be able to see what the meta key is…
