ID Archives


ID Archives displays WordPress post archives in a simple year and month based list that is easy to peruse, and style.

Use <?php echo id_archives(); ?> in the templates or [id-archives] shortcode within the post.

The HTML structure the plugin puts out is available here. Go ahead and style it with CSS as necessary.
