Examples

This will produce a list with: * animation on * shown in chronological order * using images to mark collapsing and expanding * exclude posts from the categories general and uncategorized

CAVEAT

This plugin relies on Javascript, but does degrade gracefully if it is not present/enabled to show all of the archive links as usual.
