Creating a Custom Query

Custom queries are a powerful feature of WordPress that allow you to display the data on a page in whatever way you want.

We have already seen how the default query works in WordPress. The while loop on every template file that we have worked on so far iterates on the data returned by the default query. For example, the while loop in index.php fetches blog posts and displays the titles of ten most recent posts by default.
