This tag examines the url of the current page and populated four variables: y for year, d for day, m for month, and monthtitle (the name of the month referenced in m). With access to those bits of information, your Textpattern install can be customized to do Yearly, Monthly and Daily Archives in a manner similar to what you may have seen from some other CMS.


There was an earlier version of this plugin called mkp_archives that I lost when the Textdrive hosting service went down. But I think this one is actually an improvement anyway. Also thanks to adi_gps and smd_if for some definite inspiration.



Just use <txp:mkp_url_parameters /> at the top of a page or form where you need to capture URL information. For a better explanation, you will want to visit the Demo Site.




<txp:mkp_url_parameters />

    • When you write an article you assign it to a section of your site.
    • Sections use a page template and a style as an output scaffold.
    • Page templates use HTML and Textpattern tags (like this: <txp:article />) to build the markup.
    • Some Textpattern tags use forms, which are building blocks for reusable snippets of code and markup you may build and use at your discretion.

There are a host of Frequently Asked Questions to help you get started.

Textpattern tags, their attributes and values are as well explained as sampled at the User Documentation, where you will also find valuable tips and tutorials.

If all else fails, there’s a whole crowd of friendly, helpful people over at the Textpattern support forum. Come and pay a visit!
