I'm wondering if there is some way - heretofore missed in my travels - of creating a generic link to "archives?" What I mean is: I know I could easily link to the August, 2009 archives (/blog/2009/08), but I'd like to be able to create a link which automatically goes to the latest monthly archive (or weekly, for that matter) and updates consistently.
My front page does not contain a standard list of posts like the basic format would be. It only shows the most current sticky post. Thus I'd like to be able to send someone to a "See more posts" page, but the standard wp_next_posts() function is not working. I am surprised to find that this links to another page generated using home.php instead of what I expected, which was index.php or even archives.php. But then, I guess this is another question altogether!
