    What kind of sorting are you interested in?
    Could you be a little more specific?

    Have a look at

    It doesn't just have to return archives, it can be used to power an index template.

    Hmm, I'm looking for something similar... custom post ordering.

    Specifically, I am creating a page that lists a musician's gigs. I have "Gigs" as a category. I originally thought that I would use the gig's date as the post title, then date the post with the gig date. (I am then also syndicating the category headines--the gig dates--back to the home page.) What fails here is that WP won't let me assign a published date for a post that is in the future; it defaults back to today.

    I looked for event plugins, found a few but they seem to emply a table/grid calendar display. I simply want to post the gigs as regular posts. I also looked for musician and gig related plugins, but found none.

    With all the band sites out there powered by WP, there has to be a solution out there for this.

    All comments appreciated,
    JF ;)

    This post was interesting:

    I ended up going with EventCalendar2:

    At first glance, it didn't look like it would suit my needs, but digging deeper it became clear that it's not just about a calendar display. This plugin also makes my RSS syndication of the Gigs cat headlines on the home page obsolete since you can include the headlines easily enough with:

    <?php ec2_get_events(); ?>

    However, I'll keep Magpie running that since I am also using it to provide a more customized display of posts from my News cat on the home page.

    JF ;)
