I am currently looking into passing a single query into multiple widgets on a template without running multiple queries. The obvious goal is speed and efficiency.
I have a widget that will deliver specific aspects of the same object with different instances of the widget in the template. Widget instances are a must, but the object instance should remain unchanged. Is there a sweet spot in the template run of actions and filters I should look for in my widget?
For example, I want
object->title to show in my widget at the top of the page, so I check that box and so to show in that area. Then I have another instance of the widget where I check
object->content to show in that area.
That's very easy inside of the widget, however, very inefficient because I just ran two queries for the same object, because of my widgets being two different objects unto themselves.
How can my widget not attempt the same query twice in this situation? Will
get_queried_object run a query for both of those widget instances?
