Support » Fixing WordPress » Arranging my Archives page

  • I’ve got my site running, but I don’t have a formal archives page.

    Well there is one, all I need to do is create a page using the archives template. But it doesn’t display how I would want it. It groups everything by month, so all I see is a list of months. Then it has a list of subjects, which honestly I have no interest in displaying.

    I don’t want the archives grouped into months. I make one post a week so I only see four a month. I want to just have the whole set of archives listed on one page. Maybe when I have a bigger archive I’ll change it to group posts by year. But right now I’d prefer a long list of each post.

    I’m running ComicPress, by the way, but the archive options I have within comic press are limited and simple, and direct me to adjust my WordPress settings for finer control.

    And on that note, I have the option in ComicPress to set it so all posts, not just the comic, appears in the archive. Yet regardless of if that is checked or not I always get news posts appearing in the archive.
    I’d like to have a separate page that archives the news, if it all possible.

    So, how do I change how the archives are displayed?

    post the full code of the archives template –

    please use the pastebin, see

    it possibly uses this function where you might be able to adjust parameters.

    The full code? I haven’t modified any of the code, just the settings in the dashboard. I wouldn’t even know where to find the code.

    ComicPress has like 3-4 different archive templates to use, did you try any of the others?

    Also the [checkbox] for the appearing in the archive both the comics and blog categories is for the standard archive system from wordpress, not necessarily just templates, although it works with a couple of them.
    I’m also not sure what you mean by “long list of each post” .. like a big list of comics? did you try using the /category/<primary comic cateogry slug>/ route ?

    Sorry, yeah, I found something here.
    For some reason when I was first putting that page together I never saw the other templates; I swear the drop-down list only showed one archives template.
    I found one of the other templates that works like what I want. I might try to make a custom template later when I have enough content to justify a different format.

    On the subject of templates though… What would I need in a new file to create a template that is just a regular page but uses a different CSS file? (This is for a different page I want to add.)

    just the template really, you can add the CSS to whatever override you use either child themes style.css jetpack’s edit CSS or theme companion
