1 node.module node_load_multiple($nids = array(), $conditions = array(), $reset = FALSE)

Loads node entities from the database.

This function should be used whenever you need to load more than one node from the database. Nodes are loaded into memory and will not require database access if loaded again during the same page request.


array|false $nids: (optional) An array of node IDs or FALSE to load all the nodes. Using an empty array (the default value), the function will return an empty array.

array $conditions: (deprecated) An associative array of conditions on the {node} table, where the keys are the database fields and the values are the values those fields must have. Instead, it is preferable to use EntityFieldQuery to retrieve a list of entity IDs loadable by this function.

bool $reset: (optional) Whether to reset the internal node_load() cache.

Return value

Node[]: An array of node objects indexed by nid.
