Hi Jason and Daryl

Thanks for this thread - have been trying to implement this but its not showing on the live page.

I have a template group in PCMS called Blog Items

I have created a recordset ( BlogRS ) for the Blog Items to be shown on the page.

I created a 2nd recordset ( BlogMenuRS ) to create the menu system mentioned in this thread.

This is the code I used for the BlogMenuRS recordset:

  SELECT Date_format(pcms2_contents.ContentDate, '%M, %Y') as contDate, COUNT(*) AS cc
FROM pcms2_contents
WHERE pcms2_contents.ContentPageName='Blog Items' AND pcms2_contents.ContentPageSetParentID=12
GROUP BY YEAR(pcms2_contents.ContentDate), MONTH(pcms2_contents.ContentDate)
ORDER BY pcms2_contents.ContentDate DESC  

and this is your code amended to reflect my recordset:

php:
<?php
    
// RepeatSelectionCounter_1 Begin Loop
    
$RepeatSelectionCounter_1_IterationsRemaining $RepeatSelectionCounter_1_Iterations;
    while(
$RepeatSelectionCounter_1_IterationsRemaining--){
        if(
$RepeatSelectionCounterBasedLooping_1 || $row_BlogMenuRS){
?>
<?php 
echo $row_BlogMenuRS['contDate']; ?> (<?php echo $row_BlogMenuRS['cc']; ?>)<br/>
<?php
    
// RepeatSelectionCounter_1 Begin Alternate Content
    
else{
?>
<?php 
// RepeatSelectionCounter_1 End Alternate Content
        
if(!$RepeatSelectionCounterBasedLooping_1 && $RepeatSelectionCounter_1_IterationsRemaining != 0){
            if(!
$row_BlogMenuRS && $RepeatSelectionCounter_1_Iterations == -1){$RepeatSelectionCounter_1_IterationsRemaining 0;}
            
$row_BlogMenuRS mysql_fetch_assoc($BlogMenuRS);
        }
        
$RepeatSelectionCounter_1++;
    } 
// RepeatSelectionCounter_1 End Loop
?>



But for some reason, its not displaying on the live page.... obviously I have either not done something or done it incorrectly and would appreciate your help please

Many thanks

Jamie
