hello i just added date input by using metabox but i can't sort the loop in the front end page by latest metabox input date i try this

$args = array(
'post_type'  => 'post',
'meta_key'       => 'meta_date', 
'meta_value_num' => ,
query_posts($guide); if(have_posts()){
 while(have_posts()) : the_post();
 echo get_the_title();

but doesn't work for me , is there anyway to do that by using loop,thanks


Have you tried passing in the $args variable to query_posts, rather than $guide?


Also, you should be looking to create the custom query using WP_Query class and not the query_posts. See this answer for more details (https://wordpress.stackexchange.com/a/1755)

Try the below code:

$args = array('post_type'  => 'post', 'meta_key' => 'meta_date', 'meta_value_num' => , );

$my_query = new WP_Query( $args );

if($my_query->have_posts() { 
    while($my_query->have_posts()) : $my_query->the_post();
          echo get_the_title();

Also, please see the following: Order custom posts by a date metabox.
