Quick Query


Quick Query is a snappy interface for WP_Query that makes querying with WordPress straightforward and concise. It’s built on top of WP_Query (with a few exceptions), and provides a much more flexible and accomodating interface for querying posts.

Quick Query is under heavy development!

I’m writing code + testing as fast as I can to get us to a good minimum set of functionality.

The Future!

Besides adding interfaces for the most common querying tasks (posts, tags, authors, sorting, etc.), I’d like to build in sensitivity to ACF fields/data and possibly a caching interface.

Before that can happen, there are lots of tests to be written and plenty of design decisions to be made (and, of course, documentation!).

Who’s this for?

This is certainly geared more toward developers than designers and hobbyists. That said, It does return WP_Post objects, so all/most of the functionality you’re used to may be there.


We’re working on getting this up into composer registries and what not. For now you can follow this simple process:

  1. Upload QuickQuery.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Query away!
