Extended Live Archives (ELA) [update request]

    Hey,
    ELA’s support & development seems to be dead for a while now, however there doesn’t seem to be an alternative when it comes to custom archives. Would someone with coding skills accept the challenge of updating this essential WP extension ?

    How about trying SRG Clean Archives?

    Thank you for your reply!
    SRG Clean Archives has one important shortcoming: being date-centered only. If you want a subject-centered organization, it just doesn’t cut it… nice for a blog, but not enough for a CMS.
    ELA can be date, category or tag centered, and the reader can switch interactively. I believe that is the main reason so many people stick with it, despit the lack of development. And it supports UTW.

    You’re welcome for the reply.

    I’m working on some new updates for SRG Clean Archives, and will take your suggestions into consideration for the next release.

    Yay! I’m happy to hear (read) that. Thank you for your efforts! They will certainly be much appreciated.

    Fwiw, I had seen a couple of articles referring to a version of ELA which worked with an alpha of WP 2.3. The developer hasn’t made an update (afaict) since July, though, so I don’t know what state the plugin is in (much of tinyau’s blog is in Chinese):

    It looks like this version doesn’t support UTW, though, unless I misunderstood the post.

    Thanks, i will try that as soon as i upgrade. I am not sure there will be any other updates from that developer tough, it seems he switched to Habari (and is a commiter)…
    I’ll post my results when i am through.

    On a local WP 2.3.1 installation, the modified ELA build from tinyau.net didn’t work at all for me. 🙁 It made my archives.php blank below the heading.

    Consider this a friendly bump. 😉

    I too would like to get my hands on a version of ELA that is compatible with WP 2.3.2.

    Has anyone taken on the challenge and released a new version? (I couldn’t get the tinyau.net version to work either.)

    bump.. somebody please make this plugin work with wp2.6.. there is not really a replacement out there at this pt.

    thanks

    I did a search and found this topic. Has anyone tried it out?
