I need to get a list of all my Wordpress post's urls, ie:

http://www.mysite.com/postnameone
http://www.mysite.com/postnametwo
http://www.mysite.com/postnamethree

I have found I can use this:

<?php wp_get_archives('type=postbypost&limit=2000&format=custom'); ?>

In a template to get a full list of post titles that are linked to each post, but I don't need a link, I just need a list of the plain text (unlinked) permalink urls, one per line.

Can you show me how to do that?

Thanks,  Chris

Something like:

<?php if ( have_posts() ) : while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>
    <p><?php the_permalink() ?></p>
<?php endwhile; else: ?>
   <p><?php _e('Sorry, no posts matched your criteria.'); ?></p>
<?php endif; ?>

You might want to wrap them inside of <ul><li> tags so it's easier to make them into a list. I'm not sure you want them to display, but fi you want the actual title, use this:

<div id="all-posts">
  <?php $debut = 0; while(have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    <ul>
    <?php $myposts = get_posts('numberposts=-1&offset=$debut'); foreach($myposts as $post) : ?>
      <li>
        <?php the_title(); ?>
      </li>
    <?php endforeach; ?>
    </ul>
  <?php endwhile; ?>
</div>

Open in new window


If you want the URL of the posts, use Jason's code. It will need a little modification though. I believe it would only output the page/post that you open to display the post titles.

Understanding Web Applications

Without even knowing it, most of us are using web applications on a daily basis. Gmail and Yahoo email, Twitter, Facebook, and eBay are used by most of us daily—and they are web applications. We often confuse these web applications tools for websites.  So, what is the difference?

So you need to combine Jeremy's loop with my interior to get the solution :)

No more late night EE for me...brain hurts

Placing:

<?php the_permalink() ?>

inside the loop (use li or p tags for structure) should return the list of URLs

I'm confused,

Do you mean in jeremyjared74's loop? Replace 'the_title()' with 'the_permanlink()'?

I don't get any results, just:

-----(page source)----

<div id="all-posts">

      <ul>
------------------------

Here is the code I have on a template page right now:

<?php
/*
Template Name: url-list
*/
?>
<div id="all-posts">
  <?php $debut = 0; while(have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    <ul>
    <?php $myposts = get_posts('numberposts=-1&offset=$debut'); foreach($myposts as $post) : ?>
      <li>
        <?php the_permalink(); ?>
      </li>
    <?php endforeach; ?>
    </ul>
  <?php endwhile; ?>
</div>

I think you have it. By combining my custom function with Jason's you should get what you're needing. It's a little late or I'd test it. I haven;t really looked at your latest code, but here's a quick change that should work:

<div id="all-posts">
  <?php $debut = 0; while(have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    <ul>
    <?php $myposts = get_posts('numberposts=-1&offset=$debut'); foreach($myposts as $post) : ?>
      <li>
        <?php the_permalink() ?>
      </li>
    <?php endforeach; ?>
    </ul>
  <?php endwhile; ?>
</div>

I'm not after the points, Jason would have eventually worked it out, so I don't require any points. I was only making an observation.

Good Night,
JJ

I just tested my code, and it's working. I don't know why it's not for you. You don't have the code place in a template with another loop do you?

I just placed the code as is inside of a sidebar I had available. If you don't figure it out, one of us will finish up tomorrow.

Regards,
Jeremy Jared

ah, took a look with fresh eyes this morning ;)

I had to adjust the numberposts=-1 to a much higher number. I don't know if it works for you with -1 or if you thought I would know that :)  (I did, come morning!).

jeremyjared74 - do you really not want points, or shall I split them between the two of you?

Thank you very much!

It's up to you, I'd give most to Jason though. I didn't want to impose on his answers, I just wanted to add some input. You might select on of my answers as assisted solution so it can be seen by others that might search and find this question.

Yeah I assumed you were copy and pasting the code. Sometimes when I'm in a rush I forget to explain important parts of the code. I'm glad you caught it and were able to solve you problem.

JJ

The right thing to do is give jj the solution and me an assist with more poinks to Jeremy.  His loop is correct, I just used the right function to return a URL.  

Good teamwork, though. :)
