#55806 closed enhancement (duplicate)

`get_pages` should use `WP_Query` internally

The function get_pages does raw database calls. It does not use the class WP_Query. This means that performance, bug fixes and filters are not applied to get_pages. To improve maintainability and reduce code, get_pages should be refactored to use WP_Query internally.

Thanks for the ticket!

This was previously discussed in comment:8:ticket:32077, closed in favor of #12821. There are some patches on the latter ticket that could be used as a start. Should we continue there?

Also related: #40650.

I fully endorse this, there is some helpful discussion on #12821 so will follow Sergey's suggestion to continue there.
