Hey,

I have created a very simple website for a client where he can add and show upcoming auctions.

I have used the Custom Post Types UI plugin for the post types and the Advanced Custom Field to display the meta-fields.

Now, on the frontpage http://auktionsvinder.dk you can see three events. Now, the test event I have created, is "old". Or in other words, it has passed the date for the event, so; it should NOT be showing any longer.

How can make a custom WP Query that filters old post and only showing today's event and future event?

This is my current WP_Query, which doesn't seem to be working:

$args = array(
	'post_type' => 'auktioner',
	'meta_key' => 'dato',
	'orderby' => 'meta_value_num',
	'order' => 'ASC',
    'meta_query' => array(
     array(
     	'key' => 'dato',
     	'compare' => '>=',
     	'value' => date('Y-m-d')
     	))
	);

$the_query = new WP_Query( $args );

Thanks a lot!
Sincerely,
Mika
