Filter Main Query

  4. To change the settings, go to Dashboard -> Plugins -> Filter Main Query.

Why should I use this plugin?

The default WordPress settings does not have the option to filter the main query, so this plugin brings the option to do so.

Will it break any other plugins?

I don’t think so.

Won’t this conflict with plugins?

Well I can’t tell for sure.

Can you add a feature X?

Depends, if its useful enough and I have time for it.
