Change Log:
  • 4.0.0
  • 4.7.0

Plucks a certain field out of each object or array in an array.

This has the same functionality and prototype of array_column() (PHP 5.5) but also supports objects.


function wp_list_pluck( $input_list, $field, $index_key = null ) {
	if ( ! is_array( $input_list ) ) {
		return array();

	$util = new WP_List_Util( $input_list );

	return $util->pluck( $field, $index_key );
