archive menu

I am trying to modify an 'archive menu' that Ray and I put together ages ago and have managed to get the menu bit sorted out where it shows the month/year and if there are any entries. HJowvere, where I am struggling is displaying the list of articles based on the month (IE from the below link, the bit I am struggling with is the page after you click on, for example, May 2013.) I just dont know what or how to structure the recordset to do this.

http://clients.motley.co.uk/test/blog-with-archive2.php

I have a table with 4 columns... Blog ID, BlogDate, Content and Title

This is the recordset I am using for the menu itself:

SELECT Date_format(blog.BlogDate, '%M, %Y') as contDate, COUNT(*) AS cc, YEAR(blog.BlogDate) as ContentYear, MONTH(blog.BlogDate) as ContentMonth
FROM blog
WHERE BlogID IS NOT Null
GROUP BY YEAR(blog.BlogDate), MONTH(blog.BlogDate)
ORDER BY blog.BlogDate DESC




This is the recordset that Ray created I am trying to modify to show the entries that are stored based on their month and year:

<?php
if (!function_exists("GetSQLValueString")) {
function GetSQLValueString($theValue, $theType, $theDefinedValue = "", $theNotDefinedValue = "")
{
if (PHP_VERSION < 6) {
$theValue = get_magic_quotes_gpc() ? stripslashes($theValue) : $theValue;
}

$theValue = function_exists("mysql_real_escape_string") ? mysql_real_escape_string($theValue) : mysql_escape_string($theValue);

switch ($theType) {
case "text":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
break;
case "long":
case "int":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? intval($theValue) : "NULL";
break;
case "double":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? doubleval($theValue) : "NULL";
break;
case "date":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
break;
case "defined":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? $theDefinedValue : $theNotDefinedValue;
break;
}
return $theValue;
}
}

$passedYear_Recordset1 = "-1";
if (isset($_SESSION["passedYear"])) {
$passedYear_Recordset1 = $_SESSION["passedYear"];
}
$passedYear2_Recordset1 = "-1";
if (isset($_SESSION["passedYear"])) {
$passedYear2_Recordset1 = $_SESSION["passedYear"];
}
$passedMonth_Recordset1 = "-1";
if (isset($_SESSION["passedMonth"])) {
$passedMonth_Recordset1 = $_SESSION["passedMonth"];
}
$passedMonth2_Recordset1 = "-1";
if (isset($_SESSION["passedMonth"])) {
$passedMonth2_Recordset1 = $_SESSION["passedMonth"];
}
mysql_select_db($database_PowerCMSConnection, $PowerCMSConnection);
$query_Recordset1 = sprintf("SELECT C2.ContentGroup, C2.ContentDate, C2.ContentPageSetOrder FROM pcms2_contents AS C1 LEFT OUTER JOIN pcms2_contents AS C2 ON C2.ContentPagesetParentID = C1.ContentID WHERE C1.ContentGroup = 'Blog' AND C2.ContentPageSetOrder IS NOT NULL AND (YEAR(C2.ContentDate) = %s OR -1 = %s) AND (MONTH(C2.ContentDate) = %s OR -1 = %s) GROUP BY C2.ContentPageSetOrder ORDER BY C2.ContentPageSetOrder DESC ", GetSQLValueString($passedYear_Recordset1, "int"),GetSQLValueString($passedYear2_Recordset1, "int"),GetSQLValueString($passedMonth_Recordset1, "int"),GetSQLValueString($passedMonth2_Recordset1, "int"));
$Recordset1 = mysql_query($query_Recordset1, $PowerCMSConnection) or die(mysql_error());
$row_Recordset1 = mysql_fetch_assoc($Recordset1);
$totalRows_Recordset1 = mysql_num_rows($Recordset1);
?>

I'll need to troubleshoot directly, see the private message section.

The original recordset that Ray created was for use with the Power CMS Contents table.

you are using your own blog table which has a much simpler structure:

BlogID
BlogDate
Content
Title


Since your structure is much simpler, you have no need for using the C! and C2 aliases and creating the inner join


I corrected the problem by chanig the sql code:

php:
$query_Recordset1 = sprintf("SELECT C2.ContentGroup, C2.ContentDate, C2.ContentPageSetOrder FROM pcms2_contents AS C1 LEFT OUTER JOIN pcms2_contents AS C2 ON C2.ContentPagesetParentID = C1.ContentID WHERE C1.ContentGroup = 'Blog' AND C2.ContentPageSetOrder IS NOT NULL AND (YEAR(C2.ContentDate) = %s OR -1 = %s) AND (MONTH(C2.ContentDate) = %s OR -1 = %s) GROUP BY C2.ContentPageSetOrder ORDER BY C2.ContentPageSetOrder DESC ", GetSQLValueString($passedYear_Recordset1, "int"),GetSQLValueString($passedYear2_Recordset1, "int"),GetSQLValueString($passedMonth_Recordset1, "int"),GetSQLValueString($passedMonth2_Recordset1, "int"));



to:

php:
$query_BlogRS = sprintf("SELECT * FROM blog  WHERE BlogID IS NOT NULL AND (YEAR(BlogDate) = %s OR -1 = %s) AND (MONTH(BlogDate) = %s OR -1 = %s) GROUP BY BlogID ORDER BY BlogID DESC", GetSQLValueString($passedYear_BlogRS, "int"),GetSQLValueString($passedYear2_BlogRS, "int"),GetSQLValueString($passedMonth_BlogRS, "int"),GetSQLValueString($passedMonth2_BlogRS, "int"));

thanks Jason, thats where I was sturggling insofar as simplifying the recordset... I just didnt know what could/couldnt be removed to achieve the same effect.

I have checked the page itself and it doesnt seem to be 'working'. The following is displayed on the visible page at the moment when you click on one of the months from the menu:

array(4) { ["BlogID"]=> string(1) "6" ["BlogDate"]=> string(19) "2013-05-16 11:48:52" ["Content"]=> string(212) "

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Nam accumsan molestie lectus, ac mattis velit congue ac. Aliquam erat volutpat. Vestibulum ac ultricies dui. Etiam non est est, at ornare lorem.
" ["Title"]=> string(7) "Title 6" }
