Oke, so to be sure.
I added an extra line of code, which saves the publication date in an ACF field.
$datetime1 = new DateTime(); $date_created = $order->get_date_created(); $datetime2 = new DateTime($date_created); $difference = $datetime1->diff($datetime2); $verschil = "difference " . $difference->days . " days "; update_post_meta( $post_id, 'datum2', $verschil ); update_post_meta( $post_id, 'datum', $datetime2 );
So the next step is to create a file, which I save in my WordPress directory. The file should be like you showed:
<?php global $wp_query; $paged = get_query_var('paged') ? get_query_var('paged') : 1; $args = array( 'posts_per_page' => -1, 'post_type' => 'groeiprocessen', 'fields' => 'ids', //not sure what to add here 'post_status' => array('publish'), 'paged' => $paged ); $wp_query = new WP_Query($args); if ($wp_query->have_posts()) : while ($wp_query->have_posts()) : $wp_query->the_post(); $post_id = get_the_ID(); $datetime1 = new DateTime(); $datetime2 = get_field( "datum" ); $difference = $datetime1->diff($datetime2); $verschil = "difference " . $difference->days . " days "; update_post_meta( $post_id, 'datum2', $verschil ); endwhile; endif;
The last step should be to trigger the URL with the Cron Job.
Is that correct? Thanks for your help!
