CPT Archive


A modified version of the default Archives widget to let the user specify a custom post type rather than ‘post’, and also allows of choice or yearly or monthly archives.

Requires WordPress 3.1, and the custom post type must have archives enabled, e.g., for a post type named ‘press-release’, args would include ‘has_archive’ => ‘press-release’.
