Support » Plugin: Annual Archive » Not working out of the box

  • Resolved toad78


    Attempting to use Annual Archive: Yearly archive type widget. The only thing that posts in the title of the widget and no other data. We have lots of posts that goes back 9 years and don’t see any of the years listed. Browser Inspector shows empty data.

    Not sure what to do here.

    What settings are you using?
    Are you trying to show posts or some other post type?
    Are there any errors on the page? What about when you turn wp_debug on?
    Are there any JS errors being thrown in the console?
    Have you tried turning off other plugins to see if there is a conflict?
    What happens when you use the standard WP Archive Widget?
    Without a link to the page, I am afraid we can not be of much further assistance.

    Annual Archive Widget Settings:
    Archive type: Yearly
    Format: Link
    Post Type: post
    Number of archives to display: 10
    Sort order: DESC

    No errors in the Browser Console nor in the debug when enabled.

    I’ve disabled other plugins and tested: same result

    The standard WP Archive Widget displays just fine

    Yeah, I wish I could get a link. I understand how much easier this would be.

    ok, this is interesting, indeed… but I have some ideas for you.
    First, let’s verify that the issue is only with the widget, or the entire plugin. See if the shortcode works on a test post:
    [archives type="yearly" /]

    if that does not work, then we have a shortcode conflict. Try using the alternative shortcode ‘arcpromat’, like so:
    [arcpromat type="yearly" /]

    Post back with your results.

    Thank you for being proactive on this, twinpictures.

    Both [arcpromat type=”yearly” /] and [archives type=”yearly” /] on a test post: it does post the years as requested, which is good news. I just don’t understand why it won’t post in a sidebar widget (my other widgets post just find).

    Just a quick update: I was able to use the shortcode in an HTML Widget, which made it work. I guess I don’t understand why the plugin’s widget didn’t.

    We’ll look into the sidebar Widget and get back to you with any findings…

    Thank you.
