Could you use this?


(string) (optional) The type of post to show. Available options are:
post - Default
any - all post types
Default: post

$meta_key and $meta_value
(string) (optional) Only show posts that contain a meta (custom) field
with this key and value. Both parameters must be defined, or neither
will work.
