In Over Your Archives

Description

This plugin will display your archive page in a nice way, just like on inoveryourhead.net

Shortcode filtering

If you are using the In Over Your Archives shortcode [ioya] to embed the plugin on a page and would like to do category filtering on
your archive results, you may do so by providing the category slug(s) or ID(s), (or a mix) like so:

[ioya cat='trees']
[ioya cat='03,45']
[ioya cat='trees,45,trucks']

Customizing the template

You can customize the look and feel of the archives pages.

Add a file called ioya_month.php to your theme directory and add a basic loop in it as follows:

<?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>

    <div class="post">    
        <div class="date">
            <div class="date-day"><?php the_time('j') ?></div>
            <div class="date-month"><?php the_time('M') ?></div>
        </div>
        <h2><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title_attribute(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>
        <small>Posted by <?php the_author_link() ?> at <?php the_time('g:i A') ?></small>
        <div class="entry">
            <?php the_excerpt(); ?>
        </div>
    </div>
<?php endwhile; ?>

Then modify as necessary.
