Blog Includes: Do it Kim’s way
Kim had a dream: She wanted a great way to archive her posts about movies. She had thought about a sideblog. She had even considered plugins. But when push came to shove, Kim went her own way – which (even though I don’t “know” Kim) just seems like something Kim would do. 🙂
Kim came up with a really simple solution. She new that she wanted a separate blog just for the movies. It would let her get more creative with the layout, templates, and save time on her rebuilds. She created a brand new blog (Movies) and used daily archiving as one of her archive methods. She experimented with the MtOtherBlog plugin, but didn’t like the way it sorted her entries. So Kim used a php include to pull the posts for each day directly into her regular blog on her main index. A super easy and super fast solution using the php include!
<div class=”MTdate”&rt;<$MTEntryDate format=”%A, %x”$&rt;</div>
<?php @include(“../movies/daily/<$MTArchiveDate format=’movie_%Y%m%d.inc’$>”); ?>
Yay! Kim! 😉
