I am trying to build a navigation filter for a custom post type I've developed and I am building a navigation tool to filter the results by meta value used in all posts.

With the code I'm using, it displays all meta values, and in some cases repeats 4-5 times because there are 4-5 posts with that value.

I'd like to just get the list, but limit the number of times each is mentioned.

Here is what I've setup.

$ministry = $_GET['m'];
				$args=array(
  				'post_type' => $type,
				  'post_status' => 'publish',
				  'posts_per_page' => -1,
  				'caller_get_posts'=> 1,
				'meta_key' => 'ministry',
				'meta_value' => $ministry, 
				'orderby' => 'ministry', 
				'order' => 'ASC');

Open in new window


then to display

while ($my_query->have_posts()) : $my_query->the_post(); ?>
                    	<?php 
						$ministry = get_post_meta($post->ID, 'ministry', true);
						echo $ministry; ?>
                    <?php endwhile; 

Open in new window


I understand why it is doing this based on what I am asking for, but I'd like to know how to limit what its returning.
