<<displaying postbypost yearly archives

  • Hi everybody!

    Regarding wp_get_archives function, would it be possible to show the year and then all post titles of that year in reversed order?


    * post 12 title
    * post 11 title
    * post 10 title
    * post 9 title
    * post 8 title
    * post 7 title

    * post 10 title
    * post 9 title
    * post 8 title
    * post 7 title

  • This isn’t exactly what you’re asking for, but it’s sure close… Have a look at this plugin: http://www.sonsofskadi.net/extended-live-archive/

    Thanks, HandySolo;

    It is very kind of you, I’ll check the plugin. I was writing a template; I presume for your answer that it is not possible to produce such a list with wordpress functions.

    That would be an incorrect presumption. But I don’t believe you’d accomplish it with wp_get_archives.

    Have you read up on The_Loop? You can do a lot with it and query_posts, but sometimes it’s ok to not reinvent another wheel and check out all the archive plugins that already exist. 🙂

    Thanks again HandySolo;

    The_Loop and query_posts are a good clue, I’m not sure I’ll be able of handling all that php but I’ll give a try 😉

    I just wanted to give a quick access to all my blog entries with wp_get_archives(‘type=postbypost’) . I’d like to establish a yearly division or cut because I have 40-50 for last year.


    I’ve found a workaround but it is not smart at all;

    I can display all post of a particular year with query_posts(‘year=2006’) and then the loop, but I have to repeat the same code for each year I want to display;

    query_posts(‘year=2005’) and then the loop

    query_posts(‘year=2004’) and then the loop

    for 2007 I’ll have to insert more code;

    query_posts(‘year=2007’) and then the loop

    is it very stupid? 🙂

    Hey ganzua,

    I was trying to do the same thing as you, too. Here’s what I’ve figured out. Instead of doing ‘year=1234’ do “year=$year”

    Before that, add this:

    	$year = (int)strip_tags(stripslashes($_GET['y']));

    To get the archives of a specific year, add ?y=2000 to the url of the page you created. The default, when no y value is defined, is to show posts from all years. You can make it so it shows the current year, etc.

    Hope that helps.
