Advanced Post Queries


An Elementor extension that allows you to easily dynamically query your posts and portfolio widget results without custom query IDs.

This plugin is built on Elementor’s posts and portfolio widgets so Elementor must be installed and activated. You can use this plugin to query your posts based on a dynamic author field or date field. If you have any special requests, just message us on our website or FB page and we will try to add it to the plugin right away.

This is compatible with ACF and Jetengine too. This works for the Elementor Pro posts and portfolio widgets as well as Elementor Extras post extras widget. (If you want this to be compatible with another widget, we can check if it’s possible).

So far you can query your posts in the following ways:


  1. Author is Current User. The logged in user will only see posts that he/she is the author of.
  2. Author is Current Author. Show other posts by the current author.
  3. Custom Field is Current User. The logged in user will only see posts where the custom field equals his/her ID, email, or username, based on whichever key you choose.


  1. Pre Expired Posts. Choose a custom date field ( in «Ymd» format ) that returns an expiration date. Only non-expired posts will show.
  2. Expired Posts. Choose a custom date field ( in «Ymd» format ) that returns an expiration date. Only expired posts will show.
  3. Start and end dates. Choose 2 custom date fields ( in «Ymd» format ) that return a start and end date. Only posts within between these 2 dates will show.
  4. Query by the time.

Related Posts

  1. Dynamic Related Posts. Show posts that are dynamically hand picked by a relationship or post object field.
  2. Dynamic Related Terms. Show posts that are dynamically hand picked by a taxonomy field.
  3. Custom Field is Current Post ID. Show posts that contain a custom field that is equal to the current post.

Similar Field Values

  1. Custom Field is Value. Show posts that contain a custom field with a similar value.
  2. Custom Field Contains Value. Show posts that contain a custom field with one of many values.

Order By

  1. Dynamic OrderBy. Dynamically order the posts by a custom field.
  2. OrderBy Last Modified. Order posts by last modified date.

If you're using elementor and you have a good understanding of how DBs and taxonomies work, you'll be thinking of ways to do more than elementor can currently do, in the way of querying posts. That's where you need php skills to write custom queries, and if you don't have that you have two options: 1. Live with it. 2. Install ithis extension. I chose 2, and am very glad I did. Let's be clear, it's not as powerful as being able to write your own queries, but it offers way more options than vanilla elementor.

My website has several custom post types. Registered users can create posts for these post types. I was looking for a way to show all the posts created per user on a single page regardless of the post type. I found no way to do this. In the author archive, using the Post widget in elementor only shows all posts of a post type, not posts of a post type by the current author. Then I watched a WPTuts tutorial on how to use Shabti's Advanced Post Queries and within a few minutes, my problem was solved. Shabti, you are a life saver! Please do not stop developing or maintaining this plugin because many of us depend on it for critical applications. I am grateful to you and wish you all the very best in life. Shalom!
