If I activate the standard WordPress ‘Archives’ widget in the sidebar, no matter what month you click on it redirects back to the homepage. My blog has been up and running since June with over 50 posts.
To counter this I implemented a specific ‘Achives’ page and I’m using the SRG Clean Archives plugin. When on archives page everything is all right until you click on ‘detailed monthly archive’ link for a specific month. Once again this redirects back to the homepage.
The path that both archives are using are: domainname.com/year/month – as I said this always redirects back to the homepage, which is the twenty most recent posts.
