Support » Fixing WordPress » Archives….

  • OK, I am new to WordPress, and I may be missing something, but I cannot find a way to link to archives, or how to have them set.
    I basically want my news articles on an articles page, I have 6 news articles displayed on my front page and want all other articles from that category to go into an archives page, which my users can view.
    From there I want it so that it shows 10 on a page, then has page numbers to go to the next 10 etc, I have read alot about people using archives, but can’t find a hack or plugin for it, so believe it must be there already I just can’t see it.
    Thankyou in advance.

  • Ammonia,
    I *think* you might be looking for “Nicer Archives.” You can search for that here, or check out for that and other plugins.

    cheers got it, now just working out how to only display something from one category, if anyone could point me in a direciton that would be great.

    I think you’ll find that at

    if you are referring to hacks like this:
    “Show one category on your front page”
    then I have already tried all these (as I also want only News to show in index.php) but they don’t work, I think the reason it doesn’t work is because, they all say to go to:
    Options > Other Options > what_to_show. Set it to “posts paged”.
    And I dont have a section called “other options” and cant find the what_t0_show entry anywhere, so am stuck.
