Archives by Category and Date

Description

Archives are categorized under category name and date. It filters archives based on the category and clicked date when they are being displayed in archives page. Archives page will only show posts from the clicked date and also the posts that belong to that category. So, all in all there will be two filters while viewing archives page.
