When I require posts with the draft status the 'x-wp-total' and 'x-wp-totalpages' headers come with extra values ​​being that not all drafts are from the user making a request, so when I try to pick up the second page the answer comes empty.

To make this work, I think WP would need to make two separate queries when checking for draft posts and published posts at the same time.

So, the logic would be:

If status includes draft:

  • remove draft from status and run query
  • run second query for draft status where the author is the current user
  • sum the count of both queries

@timothyblynjacobs mentioned that this might not work as expected due to capability checks, though.

I can take a look at this as my first real bug and get a diff for the above out (assuming, everything functions and it fixes the total pages).
