3.1 RC2: Custom post type archive by date (3 posts)

    I've tested new custom post type archive template feature and it's working pretty fine for me, but as far as I can find out there is still no way to obtain date-based archive page for custom post type:

    when adding year, month, date etc. parameters for request - the CPT ignored or 404 returned, so I can not find a way to make it work without additional hacking to request process.

    Am I missing something and is that feature planing to be done for future?

    CPT archives in general seem to get pretty wonky to me.

    Date based, category based or author based..... similar issues to what you are saying

    you're right with that, but taxonomy-based or author-based archives could be quite easily build by forking appropriate taxonomy or author.php templates and modifying query object there (probably not in all cases, but in some at least).
    That's a bit hacky but as a temporary solution could be OK. Unfortunately for date archive it does not work and it's necessary to filter the request parsing process (it's how I finally achive that) to build the date archive for CPT.

    So presently only basic index for CPT works "out-of-the-box"... I think that's a great motion from the 3.0 state but it's not enough unfortunately :)
