Ok, I've checked out older forum posts and found out how to add an additional page to my blog with a list of all my archive posts.
Yes it is more helpful than having nothing at all, but it still looks nothing like my dream index/Archive page.
When I blog, I jump around a lot, I document different trips to the same country, I blog about my home city and a variety of other subjects in-between so nothing is in chronological order.
Yes I have tags and Categories, but rather than have a reader look up "New Zealand" and get more than 200 posts I'd like an Archive page where I could add New Zealand, and then sort into subsections.
What would be cool, and an massive advantage over just making subgroups in my Category section would be if I could display a thumbnail of the lead photo and the title of that particular blog post so that people could skim down an archive page and quickly click on a post /photo that takes their interest ...
...(as opposed to scrolling endlessly down pages and pages of full posts from a Category subsection to hit on a post that takes their fancy... I am a daily blogger with over 1000 posts so even the subsections of some of my Categories could be rather long!)
I can't find anything in the Archive section of the forum posts that would allow me to do this... so my question is this:
Have I missed something that already exists or should I be asking that this be added to a WordPress Wish List please?
Many Thanks! Kiwi :)
The blog I need help with is kiwidutch.wordpress.com.
