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.

ACF Frontend for Elementor
ACF Frontend Pro for Elementor

Check out Elementor Pro. We highly recommend pro for anyone who is looking to get more out of WordPress and Elementor:

  2. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/plugin-name directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress

This plugin rocks!!! I was in dire need of support for ACF Relationship fields, as Elementor Pro currently (autumn 2020) still doesn't support those. I wish I had known about this plugin sooner, it would have saved me installing a very buggy bloat boat commercial plugin, the size of a titanic, where I only needed the relationship field widget. Combined with the Ele Custom Skin plugin, this lightweight plugin is GOLD! Shabti, thank you so much for creating it. Where's your donation button??? Cheers, Anne

I think this plugin is great, definetly adds some missing features, however it REALLY needs the option to exclude current posts via relationships. So for example I have a product page where coffee is sold. On the page, I have the coffehouse/vendor listed. I also want to show similar vendors, where this relationship is based on the Relatiionship link between the product and vendor via ACF. However, although I can get the related vendors to be listed on the product's page, I cannot exclude the one that sells the product. This would be a HUGE help to add to the plugin.
