Support » Plugin: jQuery Archive List Widget » Change the url path of the news

  • Resolved alfa.alex



    in the page “Settings -> Permalink” of WordPress I’ve set the custom structure for the url, which is: /news/%post_id%

    The plugin has a default structure which is: /news/date/*YEAR*/*NUM_MONTH*

    *YEAR* and *NUM_MONTH* are my exampled keys, but they correspond to the year and month number of the news.

    How can I change the url path of the plugin to make it similar to /news/%post_id% ?

    I’ve found the part of code, where the link to the montly news is created:

    foreach ($months as $month) {
     $month_url = get_month_link($years[$i]->year, $month->month);
     $style = $currentYear || $instance['expand'] == 'all'? 'list-item' : 'none';
     $html.= "\n\t<li class=\"jaw_months\" style=\"display:{$style};\">";
     $html.= "<a href="{$month_url}">";

    but I’m not able to change correctly the logic of this code.

    Could help me or give me some kind of advice?

    Thank you very much.

    Hello again.

    Observing deeper the code and trying to understand the real working of the plugin, I’ve undesrtood that the link to which the month-x of the year-y links to the archieve of that month.

    In fact the month_url redirect to the archieve page accorded to the selected month… but this is a little bit limited to my “business” I think.

    I’ve chosen form the permalink page to map the urls with a logic designed around the post ID.
    So I need to change the montlhy url month_url, according to the post ID.
    I’ve found the get_permalink(); function and tryed to substitute it.
    But the result is not the desidered one, ’cause the get_permalink links only to the last written post.
    So I need to map the url, from the monthly archieve to the selected post listed…

    What i recommend you is to modify the URL according to your format, look the difference between wp archive’s link and your format, then with regex, change it to your format and add the POST’s ID.
