I’ll say right away – I’m only learning PHP and WordPress.
I want to automatically add posts to my site using wp_insert_post, but with a check for uniqueness.
Here is the standard code, in which there is an arbitrary unique_id field with the value 555555:
$my_post = array(
'post_title' => 'test title',
'post_content' => 'test_post',
'post_status' => 'publish',
'post_author' => 1,
'post_category' => array(50),
'meta_input' => array(
'unique_id' => '555555',
// Insert the post into the database
$post_id = wp_insert_post( $my_post );
I want to make a check for the presence of this id in the post (ie if there is an id – update this post, and if there is no such id – add a new one).
I tried to write post_id, but it doesn’t work.
I will be grateful for your help.
