In this members-only tutorial, we shall

  • loop through all the terms of a book_category taxonomy
  • construct a meta query array wherein a date_live date field added using ACF is checked for its value between the first and last days of the current month
  • for each taxonomy term create a WP_Query object having all the entries of the book post type that belong to that term AND meeting the above meta query requirement i.e., the month of date-type custom field's value matching the current month.
