Archives by Category

Description

This will create a list of all your posts. They will be ordered alphabetically by category. Category names will be anchor links so you

Version 1.0 works with WP prior to version 2.3
Version 2.2 prevents tags from showing up as a category in your list
Version 2.1 fixes errors when table prefix is not wp_
