I'm trying to, essentially, check whether a post exists and if it does (in published, draft or auto-draft states) return the post info. I'm finding get_post() doesn't seem to work with drafts, and get_posts() doesn't allow me to specify the specific post ID I'm looking for.

Is there a function to get post info for any publish_status by post ID?


There is nothing in the codex that would suggest that get_post() would not work with drafts. if you experience otherwise, try get_posts() with the include or post__in parameter.

Also see the supported type and status parameters here.
