The WordPress codex page for query_posts states that it does not cover all the parameters which query_posts takes:
This is not an exhaustive list yet. It is meant to show some of the more common things possible with setting your own queries
I couldn’t find a reference of all the parameters which are accepted by query_posts, though, even in just a simple list form. Is there a cheat-sheet or something similar available with this data?
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.
Below is everything from WordPress 3.0.1 found in the
parse_query() function of /wp-includes/query.php
However, it’s possible for a plugin to add parameters and so a list can never be fully complete:
taxonomy– (pre 3.1)
term– (pre 3.1)
Pre WP 3.1
Since WP 3.1
If you can read PHP code, you can take a look at the function
parse_query($query) in class
WP_Query of file
The supported arguments are all listed and managed there.
I use the Codex page for WP_Query.
The list may not be exhaustive but it is useful, fairly comprehensive and up-to-date. I believe that WP_Query and query_posts share the same parameters.
