quintus theme - archives

  1. I use the quintus theme. I am wondering if in my archive menu under each month a title of my articles can be listed rather than the number of articles in that month.

    When I check out a blog I like to look at the archives. The titles to the articles in the archives give me a good idea what the author focus is and wether or not the blog is of interest to me. I would like that same feature so that those who click on my blog can see if there is an article of interest.

    Thanks.

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

  2. The options you have for display in the Archives widget are found here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/archives-widget/

    Whether or not full posts, permalinked or thumbnails are displayed on Categories Pages and Archives pages is theme dependent ie. it's coded into the template and we cannot edit templates or themes. http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/editing-themes/

    In the majority of themes, posts on category or other archive pages show up just as they do on the main posts page in the blog and the number displayed is also the same. (See this page > Settings > Reading and note how many posts you choose there sets it for all). But in some themes only the beginnings of posts are shown, and in a few themes you only get titles or thumbnails. See here for a theme list of themes that may display the way you want > Category/archive pages: full posts or not http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2009/03/25/full-posts-in-archive-pages/

  3. There's also an archives shortcode (http://en.support.wordpress.com/archives-shortcode/). I use the Quintus theme also and have an Archives page (http://unlikelyexplanations.com/archives/) that displays a list of all my post titles. That page is just an introductory sentence and then this code:

    [archives]

    I think you can probably use the archives shortcode in a text widget as well, but I've never tried it.
