Missing 'archive' and 'sitemap' page templates

Recommended Posts

ckeck

I really like being able to easily assign a archives and sitemap page which are provided as built-in page templates within most themes. How come they are not present in Platform?

I am not certain why they're not, but you can try using a plugin that creates a site map. A plugin can be searched for here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/

Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

Yeah, I have a plugin to build a sitemap for Google Analytics but I'm looking for the page templates so a human visitor can pull up an archive/sitemap page.

You can use a plugin or you can display an archive widget in your sidebars.

It's not the same, sorry. These do not achieve the result I'm looking for that is fairly standard across most themes. Would appreciate having it done right, not needing to rely on yet another plugin or a widget that displays a fraction of the info. Just build it please.

Hi Ckeck, Although having page templates such as Authors, Archives, Sitemap, Contact form and so on are useful. They're most of the time very basic. I often found myself when using themes with such templates included using a plugin to do the same job as the template due to the lack of control. I would recommend the following plugins: http://devpress.com/plugins/clean-my-archives/ http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/html-sitemap/

Please search our forums, before posting!
