    Listing nodes with date after current date

    I am trying to display a list of nodes with a "displayOnFrontpageUntil" date parameter. Onle nodes with the date set to after current date should be listed.

    How do i go about this?

    Hi Dan,

    This might not be the perfect solution, but it will certainly work:

    <xsl:for-each select="$currentPage/node">
    <xsl:if test="substring(string(Exslt.ExsltDatesAndTimes:difference(umbraco.library:CurrentDate(),node/data [@alias='displayOnFrontpageUntil'])),1,1) != '-'">
    <xsl:value-of select="node/data [@alias='bodyText']"/>
    </xsl:if>
    </xsl:for-each>

    Obviously you will need to change the for-each loop to select the appropriate nodes and then change whatever you wish to output in the middle :)

    Cheers,

    Chris

    There's also the old

    <if test="umbraco.library:DateGreaterThanOrEqualToday( ./data [@alias='theDate'] )">

    ups - press the wrong solved button by mistake. Should have been Chris' post.

    Dan Draynes solution makes an error:

    System.FormatException: The string was not recognized as a valid DateTime. There is a unknown word starting at index 0

    Oops!  I've given chris a + to redress the balance.

    Well, seeing as we're going down the wrong road already, both solutions should work fine. The umbraco.library command will only work on a valid datetime - are you using the umbraco datepicker to select your date?

    yes - the "date picker" data type.

    Ooh, did you copy and paste my code direct? using

    <if test="umbraco.library:DateGreaterThanOrEqualToday( ./data [@alias='theDate'] )">

    instead of

    <if test="umbraco.library:DateGreaterThanOrEqualToday( ./data [@alias='displayOnFrontpageUntil'] )">

    Not sure what did wrong before - but have now got it to work with your solution as well.

    Thanks for the help.
