WordPress – Search Posts where Title Begins with a Letter

People produce lots of contents for their WordPress blogs. Generally, we write posts for WooCommerce and WordPress, but you may write about many other things. Sometimes, we tend to add the type of writing at the beginning of our titles. For example, some of your titles may have this format: “Short Story – Title” or “WooCommerce – How to…”

That’s a good way to keep your posts in order at all times. Now, if at any time you want to find all posts whose title starts with the letter S, for example, you might have some problems if you have thousands of posts to check.
