Custom Post Archives

Custom Post Archives creates a fully featured set of archives for each post type using a robust back-end and native templating functionality.

Custom Post Archives bridges the gap between creating Custom Post Types in WordPress 3, and actually displaying those posts. With this plugin, you have the option of displaying a completely seperate blog-like section for each post type, complete with all the features you expect to see with WordPress.

For each custom post type, if you click "active" and enter a slug-name, this plugin will let you display post-type specific:

  • Archives
  • Date archives
  • Author archives
  • Category archives
  • RSS Feeds

This plug-in also provides many additional features to fully integrate your custom post types, including:

  • Adds a menu option to the new menu section created in WordPress 3 (for themes that support it)
  • Combined archives (http://www.mysite.com/type1+type2/)
  • Option to add post types to default blog
  • Option to add post types to default RSS feed
  • Adds post type support to wp_get_archives function
  • Adds multiple global functions and filters for working with custom post types (see Functions and Filters or Plugin Help for details)
  • Automatically displays the associated post type on custom taxonomy archives
  • Extends upon the WordPress templating, allowing for flexibility by theme authors (see FAQ or Plugin Help for details)
  • Automatically flushes the rewrite cache after modifications are detected
  • Automatically adds a "blog-{post_type}" type class to the body of the created archives (for themes that implement body_class())

For help and support, help has been built into the plug-in page's contextual help section; be sure to check the FAQ and the plug-in forums if that doesn't do it.

If there are any other features you'd like to see, I'm all ears. Feel free to send a message, or hit the forums!
