Archive Pages Don't Retain Theme Style (4 posts)

    I've just moved (back) to WP from Movable Type, and I imported all of my old MT entries back into WordPress. I've noticed that when try to view my archives by month, category, or tag that the pages that are returned aren't displayed with my chosen theme. It doesn't matter which theme I choose, the month/category/tag pages are all unstyled text pages. What causes this and how can I fix it?

    I have a similar problem. Only when I view my archived postings, the background color doesn't work.

    Please take a look at

    Can anybody please help me?

    I fixed my problem. The theme I'm using didn't have any archives templates. After I created "archives.php" for an archives index page, the archived-postings-view got screwed up. I realized that archived-postings-view was not using the "page.php" as the template anymore.

    I found this document http://codex.wordpress.org/Category_Templates#What_Template_File_is_Used.3F

    So I created "archive.php" file and copy & paste what's in "page.php". Now it works.

    I wish I'd seen this earlier. I ended up going in and changing my permalink structure to a custom structure, which seems to have fixed the problem.

    Thanks for the reply, poshlush!
