Category archives by date (2 posts)

    Some time ago (v.2.23) I modified my installation of WordPress to be able to show archives by year or month and category. The method depended on the "day and name" permalink structure, and would generate something like:

    Browse <link to category archive>X Category</link>
    * <link>2008</link>
    * <link>2007</link>

    The link for each year would look like this: blogaddress/2008/?cat=8

    Now that doesn't seem to work in 2.5. Any ideas how to do this???

    Here's where I document my modifications in 2.23:

    Thanks in advance for any help...

    I've now also learned that the post2cat table no longer exists, and of course that table was part of my modifications (changing the SELECT to filter based on category if that was required).

    So the bottom line is that I need to be able to do archive lists that group by month or year and that are filtered by category.

    With blogaddress/2008/?cat=8 not working, I'm at a loss as to whether this is even possible anymore. It would be a shame if this valuable feature were gone for good.
