Support » Plugin: jQuery Archive List Widget » Adding Weekly Expansion

  • Resolved neha_joshi_rocks


    I just moved from my blogspot to self-hosted WordPress and I was looking for exactly same BLOG ARCHIVE widget like in blogspot and after getting depressed by lots of archive widgets, I found yours and I was really happy.
    Your widget is really cool and I need another feature to it.
    As I post more than 250+ posts per month, my archive widget list will grow very large.
    I wants to divide months into weeks just like this.

    How can I do this?
    I am complete noob in css/php language.

    Please suggest me a tutorial or please add this feature in your widget update.

    I really really need this type of feature. 🙁

    Waiting for your reply…

    Wow this is an interesting feature, i just released a new version and i don’t have time to do it. But I’ll accept your changes if you can code it.

    I suggest you to create a new function like getWeeks, currently i can get Years and Months, you can study them and do proper modifications to get the weeks of a given month.

    Then with that information, you’ll need to search where i call getMonths() and study how i create the <li></li> to add the weeks you have added. Sounds complicate but it isn’t.

    Please do it 🙂 you’ll learn how to modificate another software and to contribute to an open source project.

    My site is live now.

    I will try to edit and see if something happen or not.
    Thanks for your suggestion.

    If you have some code please pass it to me so i can add it to the official release.

    I studied get_month_link() and get_year_link() carefully and tried to match parts of both functions like:

    int|bool $year
    bool|int $year, bool|int $month

    But I didn’t know how to divide months into weeks as months are of 28, 29, 30 & 31 and how they will arrange and what name they will get (like 1st month got ‘January’) for eg- 01/04/2013-07/047/2013
    Believe me, It was really complicated and only a person with advanced knowledge of these WP language can do without any error.

    Looks like I will have to wait for your plugin update.

    When you get time, please give us an option to divide years into month (which is by default,currently) or weeks. Just like BLOG ARCHIVE Widget of Blogger.

    My Archive list is increasing very fast and covering a lot of unnecessary space even half of month is not completed 🙁

    You can see here.

    This update will be very useful for those who posts a lot.

    Thanks for the idea, i will let you know any update. As soon i can find spare time i’ll try to add it. I was thinking to use the MySQL Week function: to get the week number at the database.

    It’s easier to get week info from db, but this is in case you want to make some progress before the update.

    Hello Sir,

    Am still waiting for Weekly view inside Monthly view 😀
    Hope it will be releasing soon.

    Anyway, thank you for this plugin.

    Nice to know that you’re still waiting for the feature. Maybe at the end of the month that i’ll have time to do it.



    Hmmm… OK
    Thank you 🙂

    I tried to implement this but i’ll need to change a lot in my plugin and will be hard to maintain. I can implement this as a separated plugin but as a payed work.

    Sorry about that.
