    Is there a way to archive by Category and Month (show the months for a specific category)?

    Also is there a way to archive links? I want to use links to link to daily news stories with no real commentary from myself, then I’d like to keep a monthly archive of the links.

    I’ve searched and tried a number of different plugins and I tried hacking together something myself but I haven’t come up with an archive solution that would have all these features. Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Sounds more like a job for “asides” than links. Search on this forum for “asides” and find a solution that you like. My asides are done like this.

    Thanks! I’ll look into that for the daily news. I’ve been busy trying to figure out the first problem and once that it licked I’ll check out the asides

    I came up with a way to to create the category by date archives and to have the calendar link to only entries in the current category. I’m sure there is a more elegant solution than what I came up with so I’m not going to release it as a plugin yet.

    My solution uses a temp table and I’m going to have to alter that to use a new table which is only updated when an entry is edited. Once I have all that set I’ll try to make it available as a plugin but if anyone is looking for this sort of functionality in the meantime contact me here and I’ll try to explain my solution
