I have come across a function before that displayed the exact SQL code that was used in a loop for example, but can't remember.
Can anybody tell me that function?
Hi @Keith Donegan:
If I understand your question correctly I think this is what you are looking for?
<?php echo $GLOBALS['wp_query']->request; ?>
$wp_query is a global variable that contains the current query run by the loop. If you run the above code anytime while the loop is still active or even right after the loop it should give you the SQL from the loop. Just make sure you inspect it before letting something else run that uses
See this answer: Best Collection of Code for your functions.php file
Then add ?debug=sql to any WP URL, and it'll output the full list of queries that were run. (And yes, it's scary...)
