ExpressionEngine plugin which generates options for select fields starting from current year.


Copy the “year_options” folder to your /system/expressionengine/third_party folder.


Use {exp:year_options years=”” value_prefix=”” text_prefix=”“} to output year options.

The years parameter indicates the number of years in addition to this year you’d like to output, and is required. Both the value_prefix and test_prefix paramaters are optional.

Example 1

    <option value="">Year</option>
    {exp:year_options years="5"}

This would return:

    <option value="">Year</option>
    <option value="2014">2014</option>
    <option value="2013">2013</option>
    <option value="2012">2012</option>
    <option value="2011">2011</option>
    <option value="2010">2010</option>
    <option value="2009">2009</option>

Example 2

    <option value="">Year</option>
    {exp:year_options years="5" value_prefix="ABC-" text_prefix="XYZ-"}

This would return:

    <option value="">Year</option>
    <option value="ABC-2014">XYZ-2014</option>
    <option value="ABC-2013">XYZ-2013</option>
    <option value="ABC-2012">XYZ-2012</option>
