How do I show posts based on date field?

  • I have custom field artist_birth_date. Now I want to show artists list who have their birthday today. My date format is ‘January 6, 2019’ so I just need to compare month and day with today but I’m stuck getting this out from custom field to compare. Following is my loop code:

    $today = date('F j');
    $args = array(
    'post_type'=> array( 'artist'),
    'posts_per_page' => '-1',
    'meta_key' => 'artist_birth_date',
    'meta_query' => array(
    'key'     => 'artist_birth_date',
    'value'   => $today,
    'compare' => '=',
    $the_query = new WP_Query( $args );
  • Any help? I just need direction on how can I compare just day and month with today.
