How to Insert WordPress Posts Using WP_Insert_Post()


When writing a WordPress plugin, it can be beneficial to use the wp_insert_postion function to insert new posts. The process of inserting a new post in the WordPress database is relatively simple. WordPress uses a standard array structure for post elements. You can pass an array of integers to represent these elements. The array should be sanitized, and any missing values are filled in by wp_insert_post().

wp_insert_postion(), on the other hand, inserts a new post into a WordPress database. It takes an array of post information and optionally a boolean argument called $wp_error. The first argument returns a new post ID if the operation succeeded, while the second one sets a new ID if the post failed. The latter case is the case for custom taxonomy.

If you’d like to filter the posts to insert, you can use the $post_parent parameter. If you are using the dashboard for the WordPress platform, the $post_parent parameter will be true. The second parameter, $post_id, is the name of the post you’re inserting. You’ll also get the date of the new post. By default, your post will be created with the date and time that you set.

Another option to insert posts is to call a script directly from your theme. WordPress has built-in support for Ajax calls and wp_insert_post() will be available in the future. But there are other options you can use. If you’re using WPML, it’s worth noting that WP_insert_post() uses post meta keys.
