#57055 closed enhancement (fixed)

Allow posts query in wp_dashboard_recent_posts() to be cached

In wp_dashboard_recent_posts(), cache_results is set to false which means the WP_Query can't benefit of the performance changes in 6.1. I couldn't find a reason why this specific query shouldn't be cached.

The widget was added in [26144] as dashboard_show_published_posts() and renamed to wp_dashboard_recent_posts() in [26690]. cache_results was set in before the merge.

In 55895:

Query: Allow queries by wp_dashboard_recent_posts() to be cached.

Set the cache_results argument to true for WP_Query to ensure the posts queries on the dashboard can also be cached.

Props benjgrolleau.
Fixes #57055.
