Archive Page in PlatformPro

Question

Posted · Report post

I must be an idiot. For the life of me i can't figure out how to make a simple archives page in PlatformPro. I've never seen a theme without an archives.php page template before...

What are you trying to do with the archives.php page exactly?

Hey Jay, How would you like the archives template to look? Generally people use sidebars to accomplish the same effect. If there is a really good implementation of an archives.php template you're aware of, we can add it to the framework. So far we haven't been impressed.

Andrew - I'll keep my eye out for one. You're right, they are rarely impressive. Right now I'm playing with various archive plugins on: http://www.phoenixrealestateguy.com/archive/ Some of the plugins require a small piece of php to be copy/pasted in an archives.php file. But many allow the use of a short code to go on a page. Those are what I'm playing around with now. I really would just like a simple archive, one that lists by year/date as well as categories. With 5 years of posts, the archives can get ugly pretty quickly, but I find a log of visitors going though an archive trying to find posts... BTW, I just had to say that I am **loving** PlatformPro. I've been using Thesis for quite some time, but "PFP" really does allow someone like me -- who knows just enough to be dangerous and blow up a blog -- to do things I wouldn't be able to do with anything else. Nicely done!
