WordPress: How to query all posts from custom post type and display them in a list?

in WordPress on March 18, 2021

We have seen few get_posts() function examples before. We can use same function with few arguments to get the list from custom post types.



<?php 

$posts = get_posts(array(
	'posts_per_page' => -1,
	'post_type'	 => 'custom_post_type'
));

if( $posts ): ?>
	
	<ul>
		
	<?php foreach( $posts as $post ): 
		
		setup_postdata( $post );
		
		?>
		<li>
			<a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a>
		</li>
	
	<?php endforeach; ?>
	
	</ul>
	
	<?php wp_reset_postdata(); ?>

<?php endif; ?>



Why to use setup_postdata() and wp_reset_postdata()?

setup_postdata() sets up the global post data. It helps in formatting custom query results when we use custom query with Template tags.

wp_reset_postdata() function restores the global $post variable to the current post in the main query. That’s why we use it after looping through a separate query.
