I’ve got a highlight section on the header of my website which shows the title and the thumbnail of the last X posts having a thumbnail.
Is there any custom query which allows me to retrieve only the last X post having a thumbnail?
At the moment I’m retrieving the last X * 10 posts (because not all the posts have a thumbnail) hoping that in this result I’ll have X posts having a thumbnail. After doing my query I add a condition:
This solution is really uncertain and ugly, a custom query with a thumbnail parameter would be great but I couldn’t find any hint about it.
Below are the methods you can try. The first solution is probably the best. Try others if the first one doesn’t work. Senior developers aren’t just copying/pasting – they read the methods carefully & apply them wisely to each case.
try to work this into your query:
'meta_key' => '_thumbnail_id'
