How to Get All Posts with any post status?
I am creating a front end dashboard where I need to show all the posts by the current user. So, I need to show posts in all states, mainly
pending. I am now using a simple query but it is returning only the published posts.
$query = array( 'post_type' => 'my-post-type', 'post_author' => $current_user->ID ); query_posts($query);
Can anyone help? What else do I need to do?
I ***strongly*** recommend using `WP_Query` `pre_get_posts` or `get_posts` instead of `query_posts`. Never use `query_posts`
You can use the post_status parameter:
* '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. added with Version 2.9.
I'm not sure that it accepts 'any' so use an array with all of the statuses you want:
$args = array( 'post_type' => 'my-post-type', 'post_author' => $current_user->ID, 'post_status' => array('publish', 'pending', 'draft', 'auto-draft', 'future', 'private', 'inherit', 'trash') ); $query = new WP_Query($args); while ( $query->have_posts() ) : $query->the_post();
too bad we can't do something like this `'post_status' => array( '!inherit' );` (to indicate any post_status other than inherit)
@aequalsb what about `'post_status' => array_diff(get_post_stati(), ['inherit']);`
off-topic. 'any' is a real thing actually. Docs: https://developer.wordpress.org/reference/classes/wp_query/#post-type-parameters
