Usage of /posts


Fetches all posts (questions and answers) on the site.

In many ways this method is the union of /questions and /answers, returning both sets of data albeit only the common fields.

Most applications should use the question or answer specific methods, but /posts is available for those rare cases where any activity is of intereset. Examples of such queries would be: "all posts on Jan. 1st 2011" or "top 10 posts by score of all time".

The sorts accepted by this method operate on the following fields of the post object:

  • activitylast_activity_date
  • creationcreation_date
  • votesscore
activity is the default sort.

It is possible to create moderately complex queries using sort, min, max, fromdate, and todate.

This method returns a list of posts.
