How do I create archives for prev years and file current posting in those archiv

  1. I need help with archiving content. In particular, I posted a bunch of my older columns from previous years. The posted date is current, however. And, I want to archive these according to the year they were published. I do have an Archive widget but I don't know how to create archives for previous year and then move my editorial columns that show as current posting to the archived files.

    The blog I need help with is frombehindthetastingbar.wordpress.com.

  2. All posts on WordPress.com blogs have embedded datestamps in their titles. The date pf publication is critical to archiving and we bloggers do NOT create Archives. The software automatically creates Archives based on the date of publication. If you wish you can create a static page and use the Archives shortcode on it. http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/tag/archives-shortcode/

    You can edit posts and change date stamps but doing that has consequences > http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2011/08/05/avoid-creating-404-pages/
