Archives help

Recommended Posts


Hi there,

Thank you in advance for reading this.


My question is about archives.


I have used numerous different archive widgets thinking perhaps that was the problem, but everything I install after clicking on the month, only the title of each post is shown. And only three posts for that month...


I've tried to change this in viewing settings, nothing is working,


my website is wearflatstodinner.com


What do you think is the issue?

Hi Vanessa

I´m not sure but please you verify in

Dashboard > Setting > Reading 

The "Blog pages show at most" if the number is three.

Hi Vanessa


If using the Pagelines Archives layout you'll be able to adjust what content is show for the posts on the archive page (excerpts or full post content) in pagelines>site options>blogs and posts. This shouldn't affect the content or layout pulled in by a plugin but its worth taking a look to see whats selected in case it adjusts the layout.

Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

      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 it possible to have multiple archive templates? Sometimes I don't like to have all of my posts grouped together. On the current site I am working on we have a "Job Openings" section completely separate from a "News and Events" section. All I am trying to do is add a different header to each section, but even when I save as separate templates they keep over-riding each other. I am unlocking first. 
      Is this just error on my part, or is it not currently an option to have multiple archive templates?
      Let me know! Thanks!

      I'm wondering what PowerLoop is meant to display. Is it supposed to work like a configurable WP Content/Loop section?
      Here's what I'm doing:
      I've created a CPT and can display its posts either singly or grouped in an archive set of pages. This works as expected.
      Using the WP Content/Loop section, on an archive page, I can display a specific number of the CPT posts (as controlled by the Setting > Reading > Blog pages show at most . . .).
      That CPT has 20 posts.
      Adding a Post/Page Pagination section then allows me to click through to the next page(s) of archived posts.
      And so on.
      Again, this works as expected.
      However, when I try to do this with the PowerLoop section, all is not well.
      Pagination, via the Post/Page Pagination section, seems broken.
      The displayed number of posts is controlled by the Total Posts Loaded setting in the PowerLoop editor. The default is 5, so I leave it at that.
      When I click the Post/Page Pagination Previous Entries button, the URL goes to proper archive (page/2/) and the title shows Archive page 2 of 3. But the posts displayed are the exact same ones that show on page 1. Page 2 of 3 also shows me the Next Entries button which, when clicked, brings me back to page 1 (with the same 5 posts I see on all PowerLoop archive pages).
      If I change the Total Posts Loaded to 20, I get the 20 posts to show, all on one page.

      So, how does one control the number of posts displayed AND have the ability to see actual archives?
      FWIW, this also happens on normal blog posts.
      This is local dev so I cannot provide access.

      When I customize the category archive template to have pagination, and go to previous pages (categoryname/page/2/ etc.) I get an 404 error. 
      Where should I begin debugging?

      I tried to set the number of posts very low like 1-2 so I could test the pagination which of course needs to work later on when there are more posts.

      Thank you.

      I'm using Types -plugin to add a field where the site owner can upload a PDF to each post. 
      On a category page I want to show the titles of the posts as links to these PDFs. The articles are only for pdfs, there is no content, exceprt, thumbnails etc. ever.

      So I should probably use a hook to insert a link to the PDF on the archive pages. I've tried using
      add_action('the_post', 'postFunction', 10);     function postFunction() {        echo "<h1>pdf link here</h1>"; } Just to get me started before I figure out the details of what to add. It now adds the code before the title on archive pages. But it also adds that code pretty much everywhere. https://www.dropbox.com/s/0p70s2h3sx0pjj0/Screenshot%202014-08-20%2010.07.31.png
      So how can I use a hook to add something to category pages?
      I'd also like to remove the title/link to the actual post, and the read more button.

      Thank you!
