Generating a simple, clean archive page

  1. Hi there,

    I was wondering if there's a way to generate such a clean and simple archive page that it would consist merely of a list of direct links to the posts (with a little metadata aside, like categories)?

    The blog I need help with is pixelcounterrr.net.

  2. Have you looked at this?

    (though you would have to add categories manually)

  3. Okay, thanks 1tess.

    Does anyone know how to add a "posted in [category]" -element after the links?

  4. Hi Topi,

    You would have to add the categories yourself to the archives page.

    One sort of mindless/easy way would be to get yourself a test blog (private) and export your real blog to it. Choose a theme which lists titles of posts on category pages:
    http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2009/03/25/full-posts-in-archive-pages/
    View the source code, and copy the list of titles (one cat at a time) then paste the html into a page for that cat on your real blog.

    You'll have an archive of posts by category on that page.

    You'll have to update the list each time you make a post.

    There is no automatic way to do it.

  5. Thanks for the info, 1tess.

    I guess I just leave the categories out.
