If you like this plugin please do me favor and leave a review here on wordpress.org so that other people know it is helpful for you. Thanks!

Usage

WordPress automatically generates Author based, Category based, Tag based and Date based (daily, monthly and yearly) archives for your posts. Even if you do not want to use these Pages – e.g. you don’t want to have an author based archive page on a single author blog or you don’t want to have a daily archive because you don’t post several times a day – they exist and they can be accessed by their automated generated URL.

The smart Archive Page Remove Plugin adds an item ‘Archive Pages’ in the ‘Settings’ section of your WordPress Admin. Here you can select which Archive Pages you want to remove. Removed Archive Pages are no longer accessible and cause a 404 page not found error. They can be restored anytime.

FAQ

What about SEO?

Requesting a removed archive page results in a 404 file not found error which lets a Search Engine know that the page does not exist and has to be removed from the search index.

Reviews

Fantastic tool

Easy as 123 and works perfectly. This is definitely a winner for those who optimise sites for search engine rankings.

Works as advertised!

We have a client site that we migrated to a new WordPress template, and it had over 300 blog posts with unwanted CSS styling that we need to remove. The problem was the client didn’t have the budget for us to touch all 300+ blog posts and properly format everything.

We were able to fix the most glaring CSS formatting issues with this plugin. Thank you!
