wp query – Use get_pages() before another plugin modifies it
In my little plugin I am using get_pages() to get some specific pages. Important is the usage of “child_of” and a custom field key.
$pages = get_pages([ 'child_of' => 206, //Gets children and grandchildren 'sort_column' => 'menu_order', 'meta_key' => 'os_class_page_type', ]);
Now there is another plugin in my WP installation (DigiMember) which blocks pages to users which do not have access to the page.
The big problem: Digimember also filters the “get_pages” function so I can’t use it to receive blocked pages. But I really need that to create some kind of overview of these pages.
I tried to call get_pages() earlier but it’s not working before ‘plugins_loaded’ action is called. So I can’t use it before DigiMember modifies it.
How can I used get_pages before it gets modified?
I could use WP_Query, but for WP_Query calls ‘child_of’ does not exist (I still have no idea why). But I really need to get all children and grandchildren. Using get_pages() does that perfectly – when it works.
Any ideas what I can do? Thanks!
