How can i create an archive page for my blog?

Recommended Posts


Hi, i searched forum for this topic but i couldn't find the answer.


i just bought new framework and install iblogpro 5 template.


When i look into my old archive page, it was empty. So i deleted that page.


i want to create a new archive page but when i select pages / new page section, there is no archive page template option for my new page...


there is only default page, template 1,2,3,4 and 5. How can i add an archive page? Thank you...

PageLines doesn't provide a template where you can display an archive of all your posts, the Special template Archive is related to your Archive pages such as December 2013, etc...


If you wish to create a archive page for all your posts, I recommend using a plugin such as http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/smart-archives-reloaded/

There is no archive template, as its easy to create a page using a plugin. We provide drag and drop templates, why can display anything you like with the sections included with the PageLines Framework and ones from the store.

The same goes for a contact page, these templates are usually very basic and most of the time do not meet the users requirements, that is why we point users to plugins that offer better control and functionality.

      I haven't figured out how to get the "Sync Loaded Item" option in templates menu of Platform 5 to stay checked. It doesn't give me an option to save settings when I select it, and when I select it then click off the editor, it unselects. Also if I select it before loading a template, it doesn't stay checked there either.  Whats going on?

      I created a Pagelines template for a "Post type" post. Whenever creating a new post page it firstly display that template post and I have to manually change it in the scope from "All of type posts " to "Current page". 
      Is there a way to fix that?

      I'm building a website in a dev environment at
      I want to import a bunch of products, and then have the products have a different template than the default template. 
      I also want to change the default template for blog posts.
      Before I go making changes, can I do this where the post type of "products" has its own global template, and the same with blog posts?
      For instance, in a product I might want to have a widget for categories, similar products, etc., and in the blog I may want list of the latest posts, blog categories, link to an email sign-up landing page, etc.

      Hi guys,
      Is it possible, and if so, how, to change the layout of the archive pages? For example, I would like to use a smaller and more compact image size for featured images and shorten the amount of text that's displayed for each post without also changing how featured images are displayed on single post pages.
      I am talking about https://michaelkummer.com/apple/ vs How to extend the storage of your iPhone or iPad.

      Is there a shortcode or a way to automatically pull the site name into the footer or elsewhere?
