My archive.php starts like this:
get_header(); ?> <?php if( have_posts() ): ?> <div id="container" class="portfolio-wrapper"> <?php while( have_posts() ): the_post(); ?>
I'm curious... where is the actual WP Query made? For example when I press on a Category or on an Archive link, I get to this page, but where's the actual select done?
More specifically, I'm curious where the first query is created (in what file), since the above only uses a query which was already made somewhere.
I'm asking because I want to create a custom archive (using a shortcode with posts ids in it) and I want to decide what is the best approach to do that :).
