Support » Fixing WordPress » wp_get_archives displaying months with no posts

  • Greetings all. I am trying to create a list of months of archived posts in the category with id 12. I’ve tried to use wp_list_archives but it is showing months that do not have posts. Here is my current code:

    <div class="body1">
    <div class="body2">
    <div class="whole">
    <div class="whole2">
    	<div class="navbar">
    		<?php $link = get_post_meta($post->ID,'link',true);
    				$sublink = get_post_meta($post->ID,'link',true);
    				include 'inc/nav.php'; ?>
    		<?php endwhile; else: endif; ?>
    		<?php include 'inc/testimonials.php'; ?>
    		<?php if ( have_posts() ) : while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>
    	<div class="content">
    	<div class="content2">
    		<div class="sub_content">
    			<div class="sub_header">
    				<h2 class="name"><?php the_title(); ?></h2>
    			<?php $pimg = get_post_meta($post->ID,'page_img',true);
    				if ($pimg != '') { ?>
    			<img src="<?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?>/images/<?php echo $pimg; ?>" alt="<?php the_title(); ?> Image" class="page_img" /> <?php } ?>
    			<div class="page_content news_content">
    			<?php endwhile; else: endif; ?>
    					$temp = $wp_query;
    					$wp_query= null;
    					$wp_query = new WP_Query();
    					global $more;$more = 0;
    					//while ($wp_query->have_posts()) : $wp_query->the_post();
    			<?php if (have_posts()) : ?>
                  <?php $post = $posts[0]; // Hack. Set $post so that the_date() works. ?>
                  <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
                  <h4><?php the_title(); ?></h4>
                  <?php the_time('F jS, Y') ?>
                  <div class="entry">
                    <?php the_content('<br /><br />Read more &raquo;'); ?>
             	<?php endwhile; ?>
                  <div class="navigation">
                    <div class="alignleft">
                      <?php next_posts_link('&laquo; Older Entries') ?>
                    <div class="alignright">
                      <?php previous_posts_link('Newer Entries &raquo;') ?>
                  <?php else : ?>
                  <h2 class="center">Not Found</h2>
                  <p class="center">Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn't here.</p>
                  <?php endif; ?>
    		<?php //endwhile; ?><?php// $wp_query = null; $wp_query = $temp;?>
    		<div class="sidebar">
    				<div class="newartists">
    				<p class="headline">Archives</p>
    					<?php wp_get_archives('type=monthly&format=custom&before=&after='); ?></div>
    		</div><div class="clear"></div>
    	<div class="clear"></div>
    <?php include 'inc/foot.php'; ?>

    This is in a custom template… I believe I am probably doing this wrong.. I have also tried to put the “wp_get_archives” within the query and it still does not only pull the one month that the only post is in.

    It is pulling 3 months which I assume means that it is pulling the months of all the posts but when I click on the archive month it says “could not find post”.
