I recently wrote a tutorial on building a dictionary list grouped by letter. Which got me thinking. I wonder if the code could be slightly adapted to work with the post date.
This tutorial will allow you to group your posts by month and year (August 2023) or just year (2023) with the GenerateBlocks Query Loop.
1. Setup our query loop
First we need to insert our GenerateBlocks Query Loop and set a couple of parameters:
- Order By:
Feel free to style the query loop however you want. I just used the title and post date linked to the post in my tutorial, however you can add whatever information you want.
You can also add pagination to this and the solution will still work. Great for sites with a large amount of posts.
2. Adding the target class
Next we need to add the class
group-by-date to the grid block inside the
Query Loop Block. This is what will tell our code later on to add the date grouping functionality to the loop.
3. Add the code
Now we want to add the code which will modify our targeted Query Loop. Add the 2 code snippets below to
functions.php or code snippet plugin.
