WOOF_Post :: __set( String $name, Mixed $value )

Implements PHP’s __set magic method allowing properties of the post to be set via direct property assignment. This method does not update the database, and you will need to call the WOOF_Post::update method to commit any changes made. 

Note: Any attempt to set the post id directly (the “ID” property) will be denied, since the ID is generated by the database server.

This method also allows a number of properties to be set via alternative aliases which brings a bit more consistency and memorability as compared to the field names used in the database. The alias mappings available are:

  • author => post_author
  • date => post_date
  • date_gmt => post_date_gmt
  • content => post_content
  • title => post_title
  • excerpt => post_excerpt
  • status => post_status
  • password => post_password
  • name => post_name
  • slug => post_name
  • modified => post_modified
  • modified_gmt => post_modified_gmt
  • content_filtered => post_content_filtered
  • parent => post_parent
  • type => post_type
  • mime_type => post_mime_type

See the example for how to use these aliases.



  • String $name

    The name of the property to set

  • Mixed $value

    The value of the property.

MasterPress 1.3.8 is now available

16th December 2022

MasterPress 1.3.8 is a bugfix release. Fixed a bug where MB, KB, and GB were being converted to bytes incorrectly via WOOF file functions. Fixed a bug where transparent images were losing their transparency on resize.

Plugin Requirements

MasterPress requires a minimum of WordPress version 4.9, MySQL 5.6, and PHP version 5.6.20.

We also recommend that PHP is configured to use a memory limit of 64MB per request (128MB may be required for sites with higher complexity).

This plug-in is not compatible with the WordPress.com hosted service.
