Useful Commands: WordPress

Robots: noindex, nofollow

Good for staging environments so they won’t be indexed by search engines.

function robots_noindex( $robots ) {
	$robots['noindex'] = true;
	$robots['nofollow'] = true;
	return $robots;
add_filter( 'wp_robots', 'robots_noindex', 999, 1 );

Gotcha: get_posts() of ‘any’ post_type

The documentation for WordPress’s post query arguments says:

‘any‘ – retrieves any type except revisions and types with ‘exclude_from_search’ set to true

public static function get_post_ids() {

	$post_ids = get_posts(
			'fields'           => 'ids',
			'post_type'        => get_post_types(), // 'any' does not include hidden post types.
			'suppress_filters' => true,
			'meta_key'         => static::META_KEY,
			'meta_value'       => '1',
			'posts_per_page'   => -1, // do not limit results.

	return is_array( $post_ids ) ? $post_ids : array();
