I’ve followed the instructions on the official documentation for the wp_get_archives filter to make the widget show posts for the previous twelve months
However it doesn’t work in the way I need it to if some months have no posts.
For example, if I have posts in July, June, May, April, November, and October (ie nothing in the months between April and November) then setting the ‘limit’ parameter in the wp_get_archives filter to 6 makes the widget show this list of months:
But I don’t want to show November and October because they are not within the previous 6 months.
Is there a way of controlling the widget to do what I need it to? Or is a custom widget the only way to go here?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
