Get an array of category ids in wordpress?


$cats= get_categories(array( 'order' => 'ASC', 'orderby' => 'id', 'hierarchical' => 0, 'hide_empty' => 0, 'taxonomy' => 'edu_year' ));

I would like to produce a variable that contains an array of the IDs of the values retrieved from the get_categories function.


Based on the documentation it returns:

$category->term_id $category->name $category->slug $category->term_group $category->term_taxonomy_id $category->taxonomy $category->description $category->parent $category->count $category->cat_ID $category->category_count $category->category_description $category->cat_name $category->category_nicename $category->category_parent


$output_categories = array(); $categories=get_categories($args); foreach($categories as $category) { $output_categories[$category->cat_ID] = $category->name; }

Then $output_categories is exactly what you need.


When you use <a href="http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_terms" rel="nofollow">get_terms</a>:

<?php $categories_ids = get_terms( array( 'category' ), // Taxonomies array( 'fields' => 'ids' ) // Fields ); ?>
