Showing and navigating posts by date/week… can it be done?
I am attempting to design a blog section for my site, and the design I would *like* to have is causing me some issues…
This is what I want it to end up being:
My homepage will show the current weeks blog entries. The first “main” one will be the weekly update information, and will always be the first one on a week.
Below that, posted at various times during the week, will be the occasional more “minor” updates, posted by me or by other authors.
So the home page will have, for example, the Major News post, an Update Post from another author, and a Minor News post from later in the week.
This is where it seems to get more complicated. Once the week has passed, and it is time for a new Major News post, I want all three of those previous posts to stay together, but go to a previous page.
Home page = week beginning 10th march – Major News, Author Update, Minor News
Then, if you press “back” (or “previous”) on a navigation button:
Archive page = Week beginning 3rd MArch – Major News, Minor News
Press “previous” again and the page should show all the posts for:
Week beginning 26th Feb – Major news, Author Update, Author Update
…. and so on, and so forth.
The problem I’m having when searching for this solution, is that the custom navigation plugins seem to only allow for showing a single post at a time… I want to be able to navigate back and forth between pages of several posts, but to only show posts from a specific time frame.
Is this actually possible? I’m hoping I have simply been searching the forums using the incorrect terminology…
Thankyou to anyone who can help me!
