[resolved] Archives Index (4 posts)

    I am confused about creating an archives index. I have done this before, but now that I am changing themes, I am at a loss.

    I just loaded the Spiralk2 theme. It lists the pages as a menu running across the bottom of the header. It lists archives, but when I click the link I am taken to a blank page (siteurl/archives/).

    I looked up how to create an archives index. I have a page Archives. I added the custom field as instructed. The archives.php file is writable. When I click on the link Archives, it still returns a blank page. What I am looking for is an anrchives index like I created here:
    http://blog.ladow.net/archive-index/

    The contents of archive.php is:
    <?php get_header(); ?>
    <div id="content" class="narrowcolumn">
    <?php include (TEMPLATEPATH . '/theloop.php'); ?>
    </div>
    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>
    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    That seems to put in the sidebar.

    I would appreciate any help you can offer.

    Thanks.

    Why don't you use a plugin, like this one?

    I use that one for my blogs.

    That isn't exactly what I am looking for. But I did install it. I am running into the same issue that the page is still blank. I included the correct stub in the config.

    Got it! I copied the page template into archive.php and then used the clean archives plugin. Whew!
