More Information More Information

Most of the time you can find the information you want without actually dealing with the class internals and global variables. There are a whole bunch of functions that you can call from anywhere that will enable you to get the information you need.

There are two main scenarios you might want to use WP_Query in. The first is to find out what type of request WordPress is currently dealing with. The $is_* properties are designed to hold this information: use the conditional tags to interact here. This is the more common scenario to plugin writers (the second normally applies to theme writers).

The second is during The Loop. WP_Query provides numerous functions for common tasks within The Loop. To begin with, have_posts(), which calls $wp_query->have_posts(), is called to see if there are any posts to show. If there are, a while loop is begun, using have_posts() as the condition. This will iterate around as long as there are posts to show. In each iteration, the_post(), which calls $wp_query->the_post() is called, setting up internal variables within $wp_query and the global $post variable (which the template tags rely on), as above. These are the functions you should use when writing a theme file that needs a loop.

Note: If you use the_post() with your query, you need to run wp_reset_postdata() afterwards to have template tags use the main query’s current post again.

Note: Ticket #18408 For querying posts in the admin, consider using get_posts() as wp_reset_postdata() might not behave as expected.

Multiple Loops Multiple Loops

If you have multiple queries, you need to perform multiple loops. Like so…

<?php

// The Query
$query1 = new WP_Query( $args );

// The Loop
while ( $query1->have_posts() ) {
	$query1->the_post();
	echo '<li>' . get_the_title() . '</li>';
}

/* Restore original Post Data 
 * NB: Because we are using new WP_Query we aren't stomping on the 
 * original $wp_query and it does not need to be reset with 
 * wp_reset_query(). We just need to set the post data back up with
 * wp_reset_postdata().
 */
wp_reset_postdata();


/* The 2nd Query (without global var) */
$query2 = new WP_Query( $args2 );

// The 2nd Loop
while ( $query2->have_posts() ) {
	$query2->the_post();
	echo '<li>' . get_the_title( $query2->post->ID ) . '</li>';
}

// Restore original Post Data
wp_reset_postdata();

?>

Methods and Properties Methods and Properties

This is the formal documentation of WP_Query. You shouldn’t alter the properties directly, but instead use the methods to interact with them.


Top ↑

Properties Properties

  • $query
    Holds the query string that was passed to the $wp_query object by WP class.
  • $query_vars
    An associative array containing the dissected $query: an array of the query variables and their respective values.
  • $queried_object
    Applicable if the request is a category, author, permalink or Page. Holds information on the requested category, author, post or Page.
  • $queried_object_id
    If the request is a category, author, permalink or post / page, holds the corresponding ID.
  • $posts
    Gets filled with the requested posts from the database.
  • $post_count
    The number of posts being displayed.
  • $found_posts
    The total number of posts found matching the current query parameters
  • $max_num_pages
    The total number of pages. Is the result of $found_posts / $posts_per_page
  • $current_post
    (available during The Loop) Index of the post currently being displayed.
  • $post
    (available during The Loop) The post currently being displayed.
  • $is_single, $is_page, $is_archive, $is_preview, $is_date, $is_year, $is_month, $is_time, $is_author, $is_category, $is_tag, $is_tax, $is_search, $is_feed, $is_comment_feed, $is_trackback, $is_home, $is_404, $is_comments_popup, $is_admin, $is_attachment, $is_singular, $is_robots, $is_posts_page, $is_paged
    Booleans dictating what type of request this is. For example, the first three represent ‘is it a permalink?’, ‘is it a Page?’, ‘is it any type of archive page?’, respectively.

Author Parameters Author Parameters

  • author (int) – use author id.
  • author_name (string) – use ‘user_nicename‘ – NOT name.
  • author__in (array) – use author id (available since version 3.7).
  • author__not_in (array) – use author id (available since version 3.7).

Display posts by author, using author id:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'author' => 123 ) );

Display posts by author, using author ‘user_nicename‘:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'author_name' => 'rami' ) );

Show Posts From Several Authors

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'author' => '2,6,17,38' ) );

Exclude Posts Belonging to an Author

Display all posts except those from an author(singular) by prefixing its id with a ‘-‘ (minus) sign:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'author' => -12 ) );

Display posts from multiple authors:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'author__in' => array( 2, 6 ) ) );

You can also exclude multiple author this way:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'author__not_in' => array( 2, 6 ) ) );

Category Parameters Category Parameters

  • cat (int) – use category id.
  • category_name (string) – use category slug.
  • category__and (array) – use category id.
  • category__in (array) – use category id.
  • category__not_in (array) – use category id.

Display posts that have one category (and any children of that category), using category id:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'cat' => 4 ) );

Display posts that have this category (and any children of that category), using category slug:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'category_name' => 'staff' ) );

Display posts that have this category (not children of that category), using category id:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'category__in' => 4 ) );

Display posts that have several categories, using category id:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'cat' => '2,6,17,38' ) );

Display posts that have these categories, using category slug:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'category_name' => 'staff,news' ) );

Display posts that have “all” of these categories:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'category_name' => 'staff+news' ) );

Display all posts except those from a category by prefixing its id with a ‘-‘ (minus) sign.

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'cat' => '-12,-34,-56' ) );

Display posts that are in multiple categories. This shows posts that are in both categories 2 and 6:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'category__and' => array( 2, 6 ) ) );

To display posts from either category 2 OR 6, you could use cat as mentioned above, or by using category__in (note this does not show posts from any children of these categories):

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'category__in' => array( 2, 6 ) ) );

You can also exclude multiple categories this way:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'category__not_in' => array( 2, 6 ) ) );

Tag Parameters Tag Parameters

Show posts associated with certain tags.

  • tag (string) – use tag slug.
  • tag_id (int) – use tag id.
  • tag__and (array) – use tag ids.
  • tag__in (array) – use tag ids.
  • tag__not_in (array) – use tag ids.
  • tag_slug__and (array) – use tag slugs.
  • tag_slug__in (array) – use tag slugs.

Display posts that have one tag, using tag slug:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'tag' => 'cooking' ) );

Display posts that have this tag, using tag id:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'tag_id' => 13 ) );

Display posts that have “either” of these tags:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'tag' => 'bread,baking' ) );

Display posts that have “all” of these tags:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'tag' => 'bread+baking+recipe' ) );

Display posts that are tagged with both tag id 37 and tag id 47:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'tag__and' => array( 37, 47 ) ) );

To display posts from either tag id 37 or 47, you could use tag as mentioned above, or explicitly specify by using tag__in:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'tag__in' => array( 37, 47 ) ) );

Display posts that do not have any of the two tag ids 37 and 47:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'tag__not_in' => array( 37, 47 ) ) );

The tag_slug__in and tag_slug__and behave much the same, except match against the tag’s slug.

Taxonomy Parameters Taxonomy Parameters

  • {tax} (string) – use taxonomy slug. (Deprecated since version 3.1 in favor of ‘tax_query‘).
  • tax_query (array) – use taxonomy parameters (available since version 3.1).
    • relation (string) – The logical relationship between each inner taxonomy array when there is more than one. Possible values are ‘AND’, ‘OR’. Do not use with a single inner taxonomy array.
      • taxonomy (string) – Taxonomy.
      • field (string) – Select taxonomy term by. Possible values are ‘term_id’, ‘name’, ‘slug’ or ‘term_taxonomy_id’. Default value is ‘term_id’.
      • terms (int/string/array) – Taxonomy term(s).
      • include_children (boolean) – Whether or not to include children for hierarchical taxonomies. Defaults to true.
      • operator (string) – Operator to test. Possible values are ‘IN’, ‘NOT IN’, ‘AND’, ‘EXISTS’ and ‘NOT EXISTS’. Default value is ‘IN’.

Important Note: tax_query takes an array of tax query arguments arrays (it takes an array of arrays).
This construct allows you to query multiple taxonomies by using the relation parameter in the first (outer) array to describe the boolean relationship between the taxonomy arrays.

Simple Taxonomy Query:

Display posts tagged with bob, under people custom taxonomy:

$args = array(
	'post_type' => 'post',
	'tax_query' => array(
		array(
			'taxonomy' => 'people',
			'field'    => 'slug',
			'terms'    => 'bob',
		),
	),
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

Multiple Taxonomy Handling:

Display posts from several custom taxonomies:

$args = array(
	'post_type' => 'post',
	'tax_query' => array(
		'relation' => 'AND',
		array(
			'taxonomy' => 'movie_genre',
			'field'    => 'slug',
			'terms'    => array( 'action', 'comedy' ),
		),
		array(
			'taxonomy' => 'actor',
			'field'    => 'term_id',
			'terms'    => array( 103, 115, 206 ),
			'operator' => 'NOT IN',
		),
	),
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

Display posts that are in the quotes category OR have the quote post format:

$args = array(
	'post_type' => 'post',
	'tax_query' => array(
		'relation' => 'OR',
		array(
			'taxonomy' => 'category',
			'field'    => 'slug',
			'terms'    => array( 'quotes' ),
		),
		array(
			'taxonomy' => 'post_format',
			'field'    => 'slug',
			'terms'    => array( 'post-format-quote' ),
		),
	),
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

Nested Taxonomy Handling:

The 'tax_query' clauses can be nested, to create more complex queries. Example: Display posts that are in the quotes category OR both have the quote post format AND are in the wisdom category:

$args = array(
	'post_type' => 'post',
	'tax_query' => array(
		'relation' => 'OR',
		array(
			'taxonomy' => 'category',
			'field'    => 'slug',
			'terms'    => array( 'quotes' ),
		),
		array(
                        'relation' => 'AND',
                        array(
			        'taxonomy' => 'post_format',
			        'field'    => 'slug',
			        'terms'    => array( 'post-format-quote' ),
                        ),
                        array(
                                'taxonomy' => 'category',
                                'field'    => 'slug',
                                'terms'    => array( 'wisdom' ),
                        ),
		),
	),
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

Search Parameters Search Parameters

Show posts based on a keyword search.

  • s (string) – Search keyword.

Show Posts based on a keyword search

$query = new WP_Query( array( 's' => 'keyword' ) );

Post & Page Parameters Post & Page Parameters

  • p (int) – use post id.
  • name (string) – use post slug.
  • page_id (int) – use page id.
  • pagename (string) – use page slug.
  • post_parent (int) – use page id to return only child pages. Set to 0 to return only top-level entries.
  • post_parent__in (array) – use post ids. Specify posts whose parent is in an array. (available since version 3.6)
  • post_parent__not_in (array) – use post ids. Specify posts whose parent is not in an array. (available since version 3.6)
  • post__in (array) – use post ids. Specify posts to retrieve. ATTENTION If you use sticky posts, they will be included (prepended!) in the posts you retrieve whether you want it or not. To suppress this behaviour use ignore_sticky_posts.
  • post__not_in (array) – use post ids. Specify post NOT to retrieve.
  • post_name__in (array) – use post slugs. Specify posts to retrieve. (Will be available in version 4.4)

Display content based on post and page parameters. Remember that default post_type is only set to display posts but not pages.

NOTE: Ticket #28099: Passing an empty array to post__in will return has_posts() as true (and all posts will be returned). Logic should be used before hand to determine if WP_Query should be used in the event that the array being passed to post__in is empty.

Display post by ID:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'p' => 7 ) );

Display page by ID:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'page_id' => 7 ) );

Show post/page by slug

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'name' => 'about-my-life' ) );

Display page by slug:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'pagename' => 'contact' ) );

Display child page using the slug of the parent and the child page, separated by a slash (e.g. ‘parent_slug/child_slug’):

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'pagename' => 'contact_us/canada' ) );

Display child pages using parent page ID:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'post_parent' => 93 ) );

Display only top-level pages, exclude all child pages:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'post_parent' => 0 ) );

Display posts whose parent is in an array:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'post_parent__in' => array( 2, 5, 12, 14, 20 ) ) );

Display only the specific posts:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'post_type' => 'page', 'post__in' => array( 2, 5, 12, 14, 20 ) ) );

Display all posts but NOT the specified ones:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'post_type' => 'post', 'post__not_in' => array( 2, 5, 12, 14, 20 ) ) );

Note: you cannot combine post__in and post__not_in in the same query.

Also note that using a string containing a comma separated list will not work here. If you’re passing a variable, make sure it’s a proper array of integer values:

// This will NOT work
$exclude_ids = '1,2,3';
$query = new WP_Query( array( 'post__not_in' => array( $exclude_ids ) ) );

// This WILL work
$exclude_ids = array( 1, 2, 3 );
$query = new WP_Query( array( 'post__not_in' => $exclude_ids ) );

Password Parameters Password Parameters

Show content based on post and page parameters. Remember that default post_type is only set to display posts but not pages.

  • has_password (bool) – true for posts with passwords ; false for posts without passwords ; null for all posts with and without passwords (available since version 3.9).
  • post_password (string) – show posts with a particular password (available since version 3.9)

Display only password protected posts:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'has_password' => true ) );

Display only posts without passwords:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'has_password' => false ) );

Display only posts with and without passwords:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'has_password' => null ) );

Display posts with a particular password:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'post_password' => 'zxcvbn' ) );

Top ↑

Post Type Parameters Post Type Parameters

  • post_type (string / array) – use post types. Retrieves posts by post types, default value is ‘post‘. If ‘tax_query‘ is set for a query, the default value becomes ‘any‘;
    • post‘ – a post.
    • page‘ – a page.
    • revision‘ – a revision.
    • attachment‘ – an attachment. Whilst the default WP_Query post_status is ‘publish’, attachments have a default post_status of ‘inherit’. This means no attachments will be returned unless you also explicitly set post_status to ‘inherit’ or ‘any’.
    • nav_menu_item‘ – a navigation menu item
    • any‘ – retrieves any type except revisions and types with ‘exclude_from_search’ set to true.
      ** Custom Post Types (e.g. movies)

Display only pages:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'post_type' => 'page' ) );

Display ‘any‘ post type (retrieves any type except revisions and types with ‘exclude_from_search’ set to TRUE):

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'post_type' => 'any' ) );

Display multiple post types, including custom post types:

$args = array(
	'post_type' => array( 'post', 'page', 'movie', 'book' )
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

Status Parameters Status Parameters

Show posts associated with certain post status.

  • post_status (string / array) – use post status. Retrieves posts by post status. Default value is ‘publish‘, but if the user is logged in, ‘private‘ is added. Public custom post statuses are also included by default. And if the query is run in an admin context (administration area or AJAX call), protected statuses are added too. By default protected statuses are ‘future‘, ‘draft‘ and ‘pending‘.
    • publish‘ – a published post or page.
    • pending‘ – post is pending review.
    • draft‘ – a post in draft status.
    • auto-draft‘ – a newly created post, with no content.
    • future‘ – a post to publish in the future.
    • private‘ – not visible to users who are not logged in.
    • inherit‘ – a revision. see get_children().
    • trash‘ – post is in trashbin (available since version 2.9).
    • any‘ – retrieves any status except those from post statuses with ‘exclude_from_search’ set to true (i.e. trash and auto-draft).

Display only posts with the ‘draft‘ status:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'post_status' => 'draft' ) );

Display multiple post status:

$args = array(
	'post_status' => array( 'pending', 'draft', 'future' )
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

Display all attachments:

$args = array(
	'post_status' => 'any',

  • nopaging (boolean) – show all posts or use pagination. Default value is ‘false’, use paging.
  • posts_per_page (int) – number of post to show per page (available since version 2.1, replaced showposts parameter). Use 'posts_per_page'=>-1 to show all posts (the 'offset' parameter is ignored with a -1 value). Set the ‘paged’ parameter if pagination is off after using this parameter. Note: if the query is in a feed, wordpress overwrites this parameter with the stored ‘posts_per_rss’ option. To reimpose the limit, try using the ‘post_limits’ filter, or filter ‘pre_option_posts_per_rss’ and return -1
  • posts_per_archive_page (int) – number of posts to show per page – on archive pages only. Over-rides posts_per_page and showposts on pages where is_archive() or is_search() would be true.
  • offset (int) – number of post to displace or pass over. Warning: Setting the offset parameter overrides/ignores the paged parameter and breaks pagination. The 'offset' parameter is ignored when 'posts_per_page'=>-1 (show all posts) is used.
  • paged (int) – number of page. Show the posts that would normally show up just on page X when using the “Older Entries” link.
  • page (int) – number of page for a static front page. Show the posts that would normally show up just on page X of a Static Front Page.
  • ignore_sticky_posts (boolean) – ignore post stickiness (available since version 3.1, replaced caller_get_posts parameter). false (default): move sticky posts to the start of the set. true: do not move sticky posts to the start of the set.

Display x posts per page:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'posts_per_page' => 3 ) );

Display all posts in one page:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'posts_per_page' => -1 ) );

Display all posts by disabling pagination:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'nopaging' => true ) );

Display posts from the 4th one:

[/php]$query = new WP_Query( array( ‘offset’ => 3 ) );[/php]

Display 5 posts per page which follow the 3 most recent posts:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'posts_per_page' => 5, 'offset' => 3 ) );

Display posts from page number x:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'paged' => 6 ) );

Display posts from current page:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'paged' => get_query_var( 'paged' ) ) );

Display posts from the current page and set the ‘paged’ parameter to 1 when the query variable is not set (first page).

$paged = ( get_query_var('paged') ) ? get_query_var('paged') : 1;
$query = new WP_Query( array( 'paged' => $paged ) );

Pagination Note: Use get_query_var('page'); if you want your query to work in a page template that you’ve set as your static front page. The query variable ‘page’ also holds the pagenumber for a single paginated Post or Page that includes the <!--nextpage--> quicktag in the post content.

Display posts from current page on a static front page:

$paged = ( get_query_var('page') ) ? get_query_var('page') : 1;
$query = new WP_Query( array( 'paged' => $paged ) );

Display just the first sticky post:

$sticky = get_option( 'sticky_posts' );
$query = new WP_Query( array( 'p' => $sticky[0] ) );

Display just the first sticky post, if none return the last post published:

$args = array(
	'posts_per_page'      => 1,
	'post__in'            => get_option( 'sticky_posts' ),
	'ignore_sticky_posts' => 1,
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

Display just the first sticky post, if none return nothing:

$sticky = get_option( 'sticky_posts' );
$args = array(
	'posts_per_page'      => 1,
	'post__in'            => $sticky,
	'ignore_sticky_posts' => 1,
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );
if ( $sticky[0] ) {
	// insert here your stuff...
}

Exclude all sticky posts from the query:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'post__not_in' => get_option( 'sticky_posts' ) ) );

Exclude sticky posts from a category:

Return ALL posts within the category, but don’t show sticky posts at the top. The ‘sticky posts’ will still show in their natural position (e.g. by date):

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'ignore_sticky_posts' => 1, 'posts_per_page' => 3, 'cat' => 6 );

Exclude sticky posts from a category:

Return posts within the category, but exclude sticky posts completely, and adhere to paging rules:

$paged = get_query_var( 'paged' ) ? get_query_var( 'paged' ) : 1;
$sticky = get_option( 'sticky_posts' );
$args = array(
	'cat'                 => 3,
	'ignore_sticky_posts' => 1,
	'post__not_in'        => $sticky,
	'paged'               => $paged,
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

Order & Orderby Parameters Order & Orderby Parameters

Sort retrieved posts.

  • order (string | array) – Designates the ascending or descending order of the ‘orderby‘ parameter. Defaults to ‘DESC’. An array can be used for multiple order/orderby sets.
    • ASC‘ – ascending order from lowest to highest values (1, 2, 3; a, b, c).
    • DESC‘ – descending order from highest to lowest values (3, 2, 1; c, b, a).
  • orderby (string | array) – Sort retrieved posts by parameter. Defaults to ‘date (post_date)’. One or more options can be passed.
    • none‘ – No order (available since version 2.8).
    • ID‘ – Order by post id. Note the capitalization.
    • author‘ – Order by author.
    • title‘ – Order by title.
    • name‘ – Order by post name (post slug).
    • type‘ – Order by post type (available since version 4.0).
    • date‘ – Order by date.
    • modified‘ – Order by last modified date.
    • parent‘ – Order by post/page parent id.
    • rand‘ – Random order.
    • comment_count‘ – Order by number of comments (available since version 2.9).
    • menu_order‘ – Order by Page Order. Used most often for pages (Order field in the Edit Page Attributes box) and for attachments (the integer fields in the Insert / Upload Media Gallery dialog), but could be used for any post type with distinct ‘menu_order‘ values (they all default to 0).
    • meta_value‘ – Note that a ‘meta_key=keyname‘ must also be present in the query. Note also that the sorting will be alphabetical which is fine for strings (i.e. words), but can be unexpected for numbers (e.g. 1, 3, 34, 4, 56, 6, etc, rather than 1, 3, 4, 6, 34, 56 as you might naturally expect). Use ‘meta_value_num‘ instead for numeric values. You may also specify ‘meta_type‘ if you want to cast the meta value as a specific type. Possible values are ‘NUMERIC’, ‘BINARY’, ‘CHAR’, ‘DATE’, ‘DATETIME’, ‘DECIMAL’, ‘SIGNED’, ‘TIME’, ‘UNSIGNED’, same as in ‘$meta_query‘.
    • meta_value_num‘ – Order by numeric meta value (available since version 2.8). Also note that a ‘meta_key=keyname‘ must also be present in the query. This value allows for numerical sorting as noted above in ‘meta_value‘.
    • post__in‘ – Preserve post ID order given in the post__in array (available since version 3.5).

Display posts sorted by post ‘title’ in a descending order:

$args = array(
	'orderby' => 'title',
	'order'   => 'DESC',
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

Display posts sorted by ‘menu_order’ with a fallback to post ‘title’, in a descending order:

	'orderby' => 'menu_order title',
	'order'   => 'DESC',
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

Display one random post:

$args = array(
	'orderby'        => 'rand',
	'posts_per_page' => '1',

);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

Display posts ordered by comment count (popularity):

$args = array(
	'orderby' => 'comment_count'
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

Display posts with ‘Product’ type ordered by ‘Price’ custom field:

$args = array(
	'post_type' => 'product',
	'orderby'   => 'meta_value_num',
	'meta_key'  => 'price',
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

Display pages ordered by ‘title’ and ‘menu_order’. (title is dominant):

$args = array(
	'post_type' => 'page',
	'orderby'   => 'title menu_order',

Mulitiple orderby/order pairs

$args = array(
	'orderby'  => array( 'meta_value_num' => 'DESC', 'title' => 'ASC' ),

);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

‘orderby’ with ‘meta_value’ and custom post type

Display posts of type ‘my_custom_post_type’, ordered by ‘age’, and filtered to show only ages 3 and 4 (using meta_query).

$args = array(
	'post_type'  => 'my_custom_post_type',
	'meta_key'   => 'age',
	'orderby'    => 'meta_value_num',
	'order'      => 'ASC',
	'meta_query' => array(
		array(
			'key'     => 'age',

			'compare' => 'IN',
		),
	),
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

Returns posts dated December 12, 2012:

$query = new WP_Query( 'year=2012&monthnum=12&day=12' );

or:

$args = array(
	'date_query' => array(
		array(
			'year'  => 2012,
			'month' => 12,
			'day'   => 12,
		),
	),
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

Returns posts for today:

$today = getdate();
$query = new WP_Query( 'year=' . $today['year'] . '&monthnum=' . $today['mon'] . '&day=' . $today['mday'] );

or:

$today = getdate();
$args = array(
	'date_query' => array(
		array(
			'year'  => $today['year'],
			'month' => $today['mon'],
			'day'   => $today['mday'],
		),
	),
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

Returns posts for this week:

$week = date( 'W' );
$year = date( 'Y' );
$query = new WP_Query( 'year=' . $year . '&w=' . $week );

or:

$args = array(
	'date_query' => array(
		array(
			'year' => date( 'Y' ),
			'week' => date( 'W' ),
		),
	),
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

Return posts between 9AM to 5PM on weekdays

$args = array(
	'date_query' => array(
		array(
			'hour'      => 9,
			'compare'   => '>=',
		),
		array(
			'hour'      => 17,
			'compare'   => '<=',
		),
		array(
			'dayofweek' => array( 2, 6 ),
			'compare'   => 'BETWEEN',
		),
	),
	'posts_per_page' => -1,
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

Return posts from January 1st to February 28th

$args = array(
	'date_query' => array(
		array(
			'after'     => 'January 1st, 2013',
			'before'    => array(
				'year'  => 2013,
				'month' => 2,
				'day'   => 28,
			),
			'inclusive' => true,
		),
	),
	'posts_per_page' => -1,
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

Note that if a strtotime()-compatible string with just a date was passed in the before parameter, this will be converted to 00:00:00 on that date. In this case, even if inclusive was set to true, the date would not be included in the query. If you want a before date to be inclusive, include the time as well, such as 'before' => '2013-02-28 23:59:59', or use the array format, which is adjusted automatically if inclusive is set.

Return posts made over a year ago but modified in the past month

$args = array(
	'date_query' => array(
		array(
			'column' => 'post_date_gmt',
			'before' => '1 year ago',
		),
		array(
			'column' => 'post_modified_gmt',
			'after'  => '1 month ago',
		),
	),
	'posts_per_page' => -1,
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

The 'date_query' clauses can be nested, in order to construct complex queries.

Custom Field (post meta) Parameters Custom Field (post meta) Parameters

Show posts associated with a certain custom field.

This part of the query is parsed by WP_Meta_Query, so check the docs for it as well in case this list of arguments isn’t up to date.

  • meta_key (string) – Custom field key.
  • meta_value (string) – Custom field value.
  • meta_value_num (number) – Custom field value.
  • meta_compare (string) – Operator to test the ‘meta_value‘. Possible values are ‘=’, ‘!=’, ‘>’, ‘>=’, ‘<', '<=', 'LIKE', 'NOT LIKE', 'IN', 'NOT IN', 'BETWEEN', 'NOT BETWEEN', 'NOT EXISTS', 'REGEXP', 'NOT REGEXP' or 'RLIKE'. Default value is '='.
  • meta_query (array) – Custom field parameters (available since version 3.1).
    • relation (string) – The logical relationship between each inner meta_query array when there is more than one. Possible values are ‘AND’, ‘OR’. Do not use with a single inner meta_query array.

meta_query also contains one or more arrays with the following keys:

  • key (string) – Custom field key.
  • value (string|array) – Custom field value. It can be an array only when compare is 'IN', 'NOT IN', 'BETWEEN', or 'NOT BETWEEN'. You don’t have to specify a value when using the 'EXISTS' or 'NOT EXISTS' comparisons in WordPress 3.9 and up.
    (Note: Due to bug #23268, value is required for NOT EXISTS comparisons to work correctly prior to 3.9. You must supply some string for the value parameter. An empty string or NULL will NOT work. However, any other string will do the trick and will NOT show up in your SQL when using NOT EXISTS. Need inspiration? How about 'bug #23268'.)
  • compare (string) – Operator to test. Possible values are ‘=’, ‘!=’, ‘>’, ‘>=’, ‘<', '<=', 'LIKE', 'NOT LIKE', 'IN', 'NOT IN', 'BETWEEN', 'NOT BETWEEN', 'EXISTS' and 'NOT EXISTS'. Default value is '='.
  • type (string) – Custom field type. Possible values are ‘NUMERIC’, ‘BINARY’, ‘CHAR’, ‘DATE’, ‘DATETIME’, ‘DECIMAL’, ‘SIGNED’, ‘TIME’, ‘UNSIGNED’. Default value is ‘CHAR’.

The ‘type’ DATE works with the ‘compare’ value BETWEEN only if the date is stored at the format YYYY-MM-DD and tested with this format.

Important Note: meta_query takes an array of meta query arguments arrays (it takes an array of arrays) – you can see this in the examples below.
This construct allows you to query multiple metadatas by using the relation parameter in the first (outer) array to describe the boolean relationship between the meta queries. Accepted arguments are ‘AND’, ‘OR’. The default is ‘AND’.

Simple Custom Field Query:

Display posts where the custom field key is ‘color’, regardless of the custom field value:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'meta_key' => 'color' ) );

Display posts where the custom field value is ‘blue’, regardless of the custom field key:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'meta_value' => 'blue' ) );

Display page where the custom field value is ‘blue’, regardless of the custom field key:

$args = array(
	'meta_value' => 'blue',
	'post_type'  => 'page'
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

Display posts where the custom field key is ‘color’ and the custom field value is ‘blue’:

$args = array(
	'meta_key'   => 'color',
	'meta_value' => 'blue'
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

Display posts where the custom field key is ‘color’ and the custom field value IS NOT ‘blue’:

$args = array(
	'meta_key'     => 'color',
	'meta_value'   => 'blue',
	'meta_compare' => '!='
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

Display posts where the custom field key is a set date and the custom field value is now. Displays only posts which date has not passed.

$args = array(
	'post_type'    => 'event',
	'meta_key'     => 'event_date',
	'meta_value'   => date( "Ymd" ), // change to how "event date" is stored
	'meta_compare' => '>',
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

Display ‘product'(s) where the custom field key is ‘price’ and the custom field value that is LESS THAN OR EQUAL TO 22.
By using the ‘meta_value’ parameter the value 99 will be considered greater than 100 as the data are stored as ‘strings’, not ‘numbers’. For number comparison use ‘meta_value_num’.

$args = array(
	'meta_key'     => 'price',
	'meta_value'   => '22',
	'meta_compare' => '<=',
	'post_type'    => 'product'
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

Display posts with a custom field value of zero (0), regardless of the custom field key:

$args = array(
	'meta_value' => '_wp_zero_value'
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

Display posts from a single custom field:

$args = array(
	'post_type'  => 'product',
	'meta_query' => array(
		array(
			'key'     => 'color',
			'value'   => 'blue',
			'compare' => 'NOT LIKE',
		),
	),
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

(Note that meta_query expects nested arrays, even if you only have one query.)

Display posts from several custom field:

$args = array(
	'post_type'  => 'product',
	'meta_query' => array(
		array(
			'key'     => 'color',
			'value'   => 'blue',
			'compare' => 'NOT LIKE',
		),
		array(
			'key' => 'price',
			'value'   => array( 20, 100 ),
			'type'    => 'numeric',
			'compare' => 'BETWEEN',
		),
	),
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

Display posts that have meta key ‘color’ NOT LIKE value ‘blue’ OR meta key ‘price’ with values BETWEEN 20 and 100:

$args = array(
	'post_type'  => 'product',
	'meta_query' => array(
		'relation' => 'OR',
		array(
			'key'     => 'color',
			'value'   => 'blue',
			'compare' => 'NOT LIKE',
		),
		array(
			'key'     => 'price',
			'value'   => array( 20, 100 ),
			'type'    => 'numeric',
			'compare' => 'BETWEEN',
		),
	),
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

The 'meta_query' clauses can be nested in order to construct complex queries. For example, show productss where color=orange OR color=red&size=small translates to the following:

$args = array(
	'post_type'  => 'product',
	'meta_query' => array(
		'relation' => 'OR',
		array(
			'key'     => 'color',
			'value'   => 'orange',
			'compare' => '=',
		),
                array(
                        'relation' => 'AND',
                        array(
                                'key' => 'color',
                                'value' => 'red',
                                'compare' => '=',
                        ),
                        array(
                                'key' => 'size',
                                'value' => 'small',
                                'compare' => '=',
                        ),
		),
	),
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

Permission Parameters Permission Parameters

* perm (string) – User permission.

Show posts if user has the appropriate capability:

Display published and private posts, if the user has the appropriate capability:

$args = array(
	'post_status' => array( 'publish', 'private' ),
	'perm'        => 'readable',
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

Mime Type Parameters Mime Type Parameters

Used with the attachments post type.
* post_mime_type (string/array) – Allowed mime types.

Get attachments that are gif images:

Get gif images and remember that by default the attachment’s post_status is set to inherit.

$args = array(
	'post_type'	 => 'attachment',
	'post_status'	 => 'inherit',
	'post_mime_type' => 'image/gif',
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

Get attachments that are not images:

To exclude certain mime types you first need to get all mime types using get_allowed_mime_types() and run a difference between arrays of what you want and the allowed mime types with array_diff().

$unsupported_mimes  = array( 'image/jpeg', 'image/gif', 'image/png', 'image/bmp', 'image/tiff', 'image/x-icon' );
$all_mimes          = get_allowed_mime_types();
$accepted_mimes     = array_diff( $all_mimes, $unsupported_mimes );
$args		    = array(
    'post_type'         => 'attachment',
    'post_status'       => 'inherit',
    'post_mime_type'    => $accepted_mimes,
);
$query		    = new WP_Query( $query_args );

Caching Parameters Caching Parameters

Stop the data retrieved from being added to the cache.

* cache_results (boolean) – Post information cache.
* update_post_meta_cache (boolean) – Post meta information cache.
* update_post_term_cache (boolean) – Post term information cache.

Show Posts without adding post information to the cache

Display 50 posts, but don’t add post information to the cache:

$args = array(
	'posts_per_page' => 50,
	'cache_results'  => false
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

Show Posts without adding post meta information to the cache

Display 50 posts, but don’t add post meta information to the cache:

$args = array(
	'posts_per_page'         => 50,
	'update_post_meta_cache' => false
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

Show Posts without adding post term information to the cache

Display 50 posts, but don’t add post term information to the cache:

$args = array(
	'posts_per_page'         => 50,
	'update_post_term_cache' => false
);
$query = new WP_Query( $args );

In general usage you should not need to use these, adding to the cache is the right thing to do, however they may be useful in specific circumstances. An example of such circumstances might be when using a WP_Query to retrieve a list of post titles and URLs to be displayed, but in which no other information about the post will be used and the taxonomy and meta data won’t be needed. By not loading this information, you can save time from the extra unnecessary SQL queries.

Note: If a persistent object cache backend (such as memcached) is used, these flags are set to false by default since there is no need to update the cache every page load when a persistent cache exists.

    When using the `fields` parameter passed to WP_Query, the Object Cache parameters will be set to `false` by WP_Query:

    array(
    	...
    	'fields' => 'ids',
    	'cache_results' => false,			// Turned off by default since 'fields' was passed.
    	'update_post_meta_cache' => false, 	// Turned off by default since 'fields' was passed.
    	'update_post_term_cache' => false,	// Turned off by default since 'fields' was passed.
    	...
    );

    The reason being there’s no objects being returned and thus no objects to cache.

    Just a note — if you ever have occasion to use a NOT EXISTS clause, this will generate a sub-select in the SQL, which could be a performance problem in high-traffic environments.

    For example:

    		$args = [
                'post_type' => 'post',
                'post_status' => 'publish',
                'posts_per_page' => 1,
                'tax_query' => [
                    'relation' => 'OR',
                    [
                        'taxonomy' => 'team',
                        'field' => 'slug',
                        'terms' => $team_slug,
                    ],
    	            [
    		            'taxonomy' => 'team',
    		            'field' => 'id',
    		            'operator' => 'NOT EXISTS',
    	            ],
                ],
                'date_query' => [
                    [
                        'before' => $post_date,
                        'inclusive' => false,
                    ]
                ],
                'ignore_sticky_posts' => 1,
            ];
    

    This is a “previous post” query that tries to match the same ‘team’ taxonomy term of the current post, or a post with no ‘team’ taxonomy term set. We deployed code similar to this on a high-traffic site, and it immediately ran into problems due to the MySQL load. Fortunately, we were able to implement an alternative quickly.

    I would recommend doing load testing in a test environment if you find yourself needing to use EXISTS or NOT EXISTS.

    Beware of setting the 'post_status' to anything other than 'public', as it can easily lead to an information disclosure vulnerability if you are not careful.

    Normally WP_Query applies logic that will ensure that it only returns posts that the current user should be able to view (e.g., private posts are excluded from low-privilege users). However, when you supply a value for 'post_status' this capability-checking logic is effectively disabled. This means that if you pass 'post_status' as 'private', private posts will be returned even if the current user is not even logged in.

    To ensure that the proper capability checks are applied, you must use the 'perm' arg as well. It has two possible values: 'readable' and 'editable'. Passing this will ensure that only posts are returned that the user is allowed to read or edit, respectively.

    In summary, always set 'perm' => 'readable' when passing the 'post_status' arg, if you are going to be exposing the query results to the user in any way. And if the posts are going to be modified, pass 'perm' => 'editable'.
