EZ Post Archives

Easily add custom post type and taxonomy archives to your theme


  • Allows you to easily generate an archive list by year or month - very similar to the wp_get_archives() function
  • Generates necessary rewrite rules
  • Generates SEO friendly title tags for archive templates
  • Allows use of archive templates (archive.php or archive-{post-type}.php)
  • Allows easy generation of necessary template headings

Generate archive list


$args = array(
    'post_type' => '',
    // the slug(s) of the custom post type.
    // must use an array if using multiple post types

    'limit' => 12,
    // sets the number of archives pulled in

    'type' => 'yearly',
    // either yearly or monthly

    'taxonomy' => null,
    // optional taxonomy

    'term' => null,
    // optional term

    'month_format' => '<a href="{{link}}">{{month}} {{year}}</a>',
    // format for monthly links

    'year_format' => '<a href="{{link}}">{{year}}</a>',
    // format for yearly links

    'month_name_format' => 'M'
    // see the PHP date() function for reference
