The Sweet Plugin: Query Posts


Today’s Sweet Plugin is another widget plugin, but it is a very powerful widget plugin. It’s called Query Posts, and it gives you a widget that will allow you to create any custom query without writing a single line of code.

The video is embedded at the top of this post’s page, with more about the plugin below.

Query Posts

Query Posts is a plugin that adds a widget to your arsenal, from which you can select any post content within your WordPress site. It breaks down the various arguments of a WordPress query into a widget with dropdowns and fields for every option (as well as a few formatting choices).

If you have found yourself writing custom queries and dropping them in your template code, you should check this plugin out.

About the plugin author

Justin Tadlock developed Query Posts. He is also one of the authors behind Professional WordPress Plugin Development, as well as the Hybrid theme framework.

It likely feels like just yesterday we were looking at one of Tadlock’s plugins. Odds are we’ll come back around to his other plugins too. He does great work!
