I have a custom date/time field and I am trying to create a view that only displays posts that have dates in that field from 'today'. Whenever I select that field in the views filter and select 'today' nothing shows up. I've tried 'unsigned' as other supporters have suggested. No options (I think I have tried them all) have worked.

Hi Larry,

Thank you for getting in touch.

When you use the option Today() you will only get posts that have their custom fields set to the literal date of Today's date rather than the day itself.

However the filter on the view should be set to a number equal to TODAY.

Please send me a screenshot of your query filter settings so that I can have a look.

Thanks,
Shane

Here is one of the filters I tried. But I tried almost ALL of the available options in that filter box. I still got zero results.

Hi Larry,

Assuming that Work Start is a datepicker field then the value is being stored as a Timestamp. So you will need to set it to A number instead of Datetime.

If you tried this and it still doesn't work. Please provide admin access to the website as well as a link to the page where this view is on so that I can have a more detailed look.

Thanks,
Shane

Hi Larry,

Thank you for the credentials.

However when I try to log in, it is saying Invalid username.

Can you try the credentials and let me know if they work for you.

Thanks,
Shane

Hi Larry,

Not sure how active this site is as i'm seeing that its an intranet site.

However I've setup the filters to get the date value of today and tomorrow.

So the filter is set to filter for dates timestamp that are equal to or greater than or less than tomorrow. So it should only show the posts for today only.

I've also added a test time to show this.

Here is my test hidden link

Please let me know if everything is ok now.

Thanks,

You're correct. It's an intranet.

So it is kinda working. But it looks like it's basing it on server time which I'll have to fix on my own...

So if I were to create multiple views similar to the one that is there now, could I create one for days of the week then IOW, one view to display posts for monday, another for tuesday, etc... based upon the current week?

Thanks!

Hi Larry,

Unfortunately no you won't able to setup the date filter for specific days of the week.
https://toolset.com/documentation/user-guides/views/date-filters/
Based on what filters are available for the Date you won't be able to do this.

You are only able to do it based on the current day, or future days as well as the other items that apply to date filters.
Thanks,
Shane
