I have custom post type (Events) with 6 events.
$posts = get_posts( array('post_type' => 'events') ); echo '<!-- '; print_r($posts); echo ' -->';
This code shows the 5 with the most recent published date.
I should perhaps note that we have been changing the published date as a hacky sort of way to change the post display order. I'm not sure when the event started being omitted, or if this is related, but there it is.
Does anyone have any insight as to why this kind of thing would happen? Thanks.
