For what purpose following parameter is used

    It's deprecated, it's the same as the new ignore_sticky_posts parameter, which when set to true excludes sticky posts from your query.

  • @MarkDuncan it does not exclude sticky posts from query. It does show the posts but in their normal order and those are not on the top of other posts. Commented Jan 8, 2019 at 10:46

If caller_ get_ posts is set to true (or 1) then Sticky posts will be excluded from being returned first.

Its kind of a way to turn sticky posts off in a query.



caller_get_posts is deprecated since version 3.1!

Use ignore_sticky_posts instead.
