Query Query WordPress Query


WordPress wp_query plugin – Ability to make WP Queries within Posts and Pages through shortcode. It can also be used to create “related” post content. It comes in a variety of view options and allows for Admin Defaults as well as shortcode overrides.


  • [QueryQuery] - This does the standard format that is shown when the basic shortcode is used. If there is no featured image applied to show a thumbnail a default thumbnail is applied. /assets/standard.png
  • [QueryQuery disablethumbnails="1"] - This is the standard view with the featured images disabled. This will disable both applied and fallback thumbnail imaged. /assets/standard-no-image.png
  • [QueryQuery disablethumbnails="1" disabledate="1"] - This is the standard view with no image and no date shown. /assets/standard-no-image-date.png
  • [QueryQuery disablethumbnails="1" disabledate="1" disableexcerpt="1" ] - This is the standard view with no image, no date shown, and no excerpt. /assets/standard-no-image-date-exerpt.png
  • All [QueryQuery] shortcodes have defaults set on install. Those defaults can be seen in the last column within the table under the "Default" tab. Each of these Default values can be overridden with corrisponding admin values. These defaults or override values function as "Global" when using [QueryQuery] shortcode. Any shortcode variables you place within a [QueryQuery] shortcode override admin values for that specific instance of the [QueryQuery] shortcode tag. Avalible shortcode values for [QueryQuery] shortcode are listed with the correct spelling on this same "Default" tab page. /assets/admin-default.png
  • This is a helper page to explain the plugin and use once you have installed the plugin. /assets/admin-example.png

How do the queries work?

All queries are base off of the WP_Query loop. This makes the call easy to access via a short code with overrieds.

All calls match up directly with what the name is in the WP documentation and Variable names are listed in the QueryQuery Defaults section.
