Query by numeric field and field as title

  • I need help with a WordPress query to get posts.

    I have an ACF-numeric-Field called “year”.
    I need a query to get posts who have entered a year, and the year is echoed as title.

    Someting like

    – Post A
    – Post B
    – Post D

    – Post C
    – Post E

    This is what I have so far to get posts with a “year” set and ordered by.

        $args = array(
        	'numberposts'	=> -1,
        	'post_type'		=> 'artikel',
        	'meta_query'	=> array(
        		'relation'		=> 'AND',
        			'key'		=> 'year',
        			'compare'	=> 'EXISTS'
        			'key'		=> 'year',
        			'value'		=> 1900,
        			'type'		=> 'NUMERIC',
        			'compare'	=> '>'
        $the_query = new WP_Query( $args );
        <?php if( $the_query->have_posts() ): ?>

    Can someone help me how to put the year as the title?

  • Your query should look more like this

    $args = array(
      'numberposts'  => -1,
      'post_type'    => 'artikel',
      'meta_query'  => array(
        'relation'    => 'AND',
        'date_clause' => array(
          'key'    => 'year',
          'value'    => 1900,
          'type'    => 'NUMERIC',
          'compare'  => '>'
      'orderby' => array('date_clause' => 'ASC')

    You do not need the “EXISTS” meta query since you only want posts that have a value greater than something.

    I have also added a “date_clause” for a index so that they can be ordered by this field and added the orderby.

    $query = new WP_query($arg);
    if ($query->have_posts()) {
      $last_post_year = 0; // year of last post shown initialized to zero
      while ($query->have_posts()) {
        $this_post_year = get_field('year');
        if ($this_post_year != $last_post_year) {
          // this post is in a different year than the last one
          echo $year;
        $last_post_year = $this_post_year; // update last to this
        // anything else you want to this post
  • Thank you very much for your help!
