Query Editor


Adds a simple set of options to modify the default query. Be careful, this affects all list type
pages on the site and not just the home page.

You can:

  • Customise the post types used
  • Exclude terms from any taxonomy
  • Change the ordering
  • Set an offset to skip posts
  • Turn paging off
  • Use a simple meta query

Any problems, bugs or feature requests will be answered the quickest on twitter @sanchothefat.


  • The query editor options on the extended Reading settings page.


Once you install the plugin go to the Settings menu and then to the Reading settings. There you will find the options for editing the main query.
