WP Fusion’s Filter Queries option allows you to modify the results of database queries to exclude content that a user can’t access (based on WP Fusion’s access rules).

When used in Advanced mode, Filter Queries will build up a list of posts a user has access to before the main query is run, and add it to the main query via the post__not_in parameter (in order to exclude any restricted posts).

The wpf_query_filter_get_posts_args filter lets you modify the arguments going into that query.


  • $args (array): WP_Query arguments


Pre-query more posts

To protect the stability of your site, the pre-query will load at most 200 restricted posts. However if you have more than 200 posts of that post type which are protected by WP Fusion’s access rules, this could cause users to see posts they don’t have access to.

The example below extends the pre-query to check the first 1000 restricted posts.

Note that this can cause multiple thousands of extra database queries per page load, so it should be used with extreme caution.

function filter_query_posts_args( $args ) {

	$args['posts_per_page'] = 1000;

	return $args;


add_filter( 'wpf_query_filter_get_posts_args', 'filter_query_posts_args' );
