Show a calendar with posts based on Custom Field Type (date)???

  1. Hi,

    I've been trying for hours to figure this out. Basically, i'm trying to find a plugin or a simpler solution to create a calendar in a page or template that show blog posts (submitted using gravity forms) based on the Date (i added a Date custom field type to the post submission form).

    How can i do that?

    I found this plugin and it seems it's exactly what i need for the calendar part:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/ft-calendar/

    The problem is ... how can i make it show posts based on the Date custom field?

    Please help...This i kinda urgent so I need to find a solution fast.

    Thank you in advance.

  2. None of this has anything to do with Gravity Forms after the post is created. You are trying to display all posts created, by day, in a calendar format. It does not matter how the post was created (in your case, created via a Gravity Form submission.)

    I found this support topic:
    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/display-posts-in-a-calendar-using-custom-field-as-date

    Which recommended the plugin you are trying to use:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/ft-calendar/

    You will have to check with that plugin author for information on configuring the plugin to pull out the posts by date based on your custom field date.

    The WordPress post calendar widget already generates a month calendar, with previous and next months, with the date styled and the title text for the link to that day's archive is all the post titles for posts created that day. It seems you could copy that widget functionality and output some additional information. The WordPress function is get_calendar(): http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_calendar

    You may be able to find a large version of that functionality in a WordPress plugin. Maybe FT Calendar does that. If so, please contact that plugin author for configuration information on using your custom field.

    I was going to post something similar to that, more importantly, to not allow the submission to go through if the date picked is in the past, shouldn't this be integrated by default somewhere?
