    I've found quite a few Archive plugins but I have no idea how to install them. Usually you have to drop in a little <php> code where you want the archive to appear, but I can't create a page in wordpress that uses HTML/PHP.

    For instance, how do I set up this archive?

    First, you'll have to upload the plugin to your plugins folder and activate it. You'll need to get the plugin that allows you to place PHP code into your post/page (and upload/activate that too, of course) - I use RunPHP.

    Different method:

    Upload plugin, activate, insert the relevant calling code into an "myarchives.php" and upload to your themefolder (you can take the normal archives.php as a base, but change the php templatename snippet to "My Archives"), then write a page and choose "myarchives.php" as a template.
