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 1.4.1 is now available

27th May 2024

This update addresses backwards compatibility issues that were introduced in the previous update. There were some edge cases where PHP 7 had issues and it didn’t work at all on PHP 5.6. We have now changed it so that the PHP 8 compatibility changes will now only affect PHP 8 and will be more thorough… 

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.
