What I’m Trying To Do:
Pull the last part of a URL to run against a switch statement to customize the query for my page-month.php page. Example URL: http://domain.com/month/june
Then I will have page-month.php render the events for June, July, August, etc. Figured it was easier to setup a “month” page, instead of a page for every month.
How It’s Setup:
Using a custom post type for all events.
I’ve got my homepage working correctly to check if it’s the current month
<?php $today_month = date('n', time()); $today_year = date('Y', time()); $args = array( "post_type" => "events", "orderby" => "meta_value_num", "meta_key" => "_cal_start_date", "order" => "ASC" ); if($recent = new WP_Query($args)): $x=0; while($recent->have_posts()) : $recent->the_post(); if($today_month == date('n',get_post_meta($post->ID, '_cal_start_date', true))): include(TEMPLATEPATH . '/includes/entry.php'); endif; endwhile; ?>
…if there’s a better way, I’d love to know. Just need a way to search by the custom _cal_start_date meta field, per page, and the easiest way I thought of was being able to pull out the month name from the URL and customize my query from there. Thanks in advance.
