This'll maybe seem like an unbelievably dumb question, and it's probably poorly worded. Clearly I need to take a break and return fresh, but meanwhile...
In my archive.php template, the code for showing posts from a particular month is:
<ul> <?php query_posts( $query_string . '&posts_per_page=-1' ); ?> <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?> <li><?php the_time('j'); ?> <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></li> <?php endwhile; ?> </ul>
It seems clumsy, and I'm wondering what's the default template/code WP uses (in all those sidebar archives) to deliver a page of posts for a particular month.
