Plugin Documentation

WordPress doesn’t support date archives for custom post types out of the box. This plugin adds the rewrite rules needed to view the date archives at a pretty permalink.

Example permalink (url) for a custom post type events date archive.

The calendar, archive and recent posts widget are similar to the existing WordPress widgets, but with extra (custom post type) options added.

The cpt date archives use the same theme template files as the normal WordPress date archives. Extra template files and template functions are available for use in the custom post type date archives.

Where do I add the date archives?

You add the date archives in the “Date Archives” sub menu of a custom post type.

I don’t see the sub menu to add date archives?

If you don’t see the “Date Archives” sub menu in the menu of a custom post type, the post type is probably registered to not be public or not have archives. See Custom Post Types

Excellent plugin qui ajoute une fonctionnalité importante

If you're lamenting the fact that wp_get_archives() still doesn't accept custom post types, this is your plugin. See the documentation for the plugin's own alternative. It is a direct copy of the core function with CPT support added. Be sure to use if(function_exists('cptda_get_archives')) { … } to confirm the plugin is present before assuming the functions exist.

I don't know why this plugin feature isn't included in the wordpress core by default but it works great, it does what it says and easy to use...

This works really well and has been very helpful, plus I have learned some more through implementing it... Much gratitude to the author for making it available... Kind regards...

Hunted for solutions online (results of which seemed to always have some drawback) before deciding to check if a plugin was available... and there was. I was surprised that the CPT "date" feature was missing from WP - something you discover when you want more than a single "blog" type so not an uncommon request I'd have thought. Anyway, great plugin. Simple to use. Thanks very much to the author, keesiemeijer.
