#9636 closed enhancement (fixed)

get_lastpost* functions only look at post_status

Reported by: mtdewvirus Owned by:
Milestone: 2.8 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.8
Component: General Keywords: has-patch commit
Focuses: Cc:


The get_lastpostdate and get_lastpostmodified functions only use post_status='publish' in the query. According to the name of the function, shouldn't they look for post_type='post'?

Possible solutions:

  • Modify current functions to only query posts, create another set of functions get_lastpage* to query pages, and a generic set that uses current logic
  • Add a parameter to the current functions to limit by posts or pages.

A post_type option that defaults to 'post' seems good.

  • Keywords has-patch added; date posts pages removed

seems valid except in one case. the two functions only get used in feed-related code, to conditionally serve the feed. the exception is in the next patch.

On a separate note, those queries are potentially dead slow -- leading to a seq scan of the entire table, from lack of any potential index.

actually, ignore that 3rd diff. I'll open a separate ticket that optimizes the beast in its entirety.
