Exclude posts

  • Hi,

    I need to query post ‘maintenance’ and exclude post with specific values ACF taxo ‘reparation_satut’==561

    I read i have to use pre_get_post but as my query is in another function, i don’t understand where and when pre_get_post will be applied.

    I would like to apply this filter only on my query not eveywhere on the site.


    function exclude_repaired( $query ) {

    $custom_meta = array(

    ‘key’ => ‘reparation_statut’,

    ‘value’ => ‘561’,

    ‘compare’ => ‘!=’



    add_action( ‘pre_get_posts’, ‘exclude_repaired’ );

    function display_form_maintenance(){

    $args = array( /// here i don’t want posts with reparation_statut ID ==561

    ‘post_type’=> ‘maintenance’,

    ‘posts_per_page’ => -1,


    echo ‘<select>’;

    $query = new WP_Query( $args );

    if ( $query->have_posts() ) {

    while ( $query->have_posts() ) {


    echo ‘<option value=”‘.get_the_ID().'”>’.get_the_title().'</option>’;

    $post_id = get_the_ID();



    echo ‘</select>’;



  • Old post I know but it popped to the top due to spammers.

    If anyone is looking or this you can add a filter that will run on just a specific query by adding the filter before your query and then removing it after.

    add_filter('pre_get_posts', 'my_pre_get_posts');
    // do your query
    remove_filter('pre_get_posts', 'my_pre_get_posts');
