I have below structure in wp post (custom post type):



Child11 (*)

Child12 (*)


Child21 (*)

Child22 (*)


I need to get starred posts by wp_query class (or hooks)

Note: I sure that maximum depth of posts is two.

How do i do this?


try this

$posts = get_posts([
    "post_type" => "ABCD", // put the custom type here
    "post_parent__not_in" => "0", // parent is not root
