How do I get an archive page, similar to my 404 page

    I’ve just switched to the “Publish” WP.com theme, and I can’t find where to switch on an archive page listing the titles of all posts.

    When I went looking for it at /archive, or /blog etc, I find that the 404 page has almost exactly what I’m looking for on it! (although it only shows the most recent posts)

    How can I create an archive page? I’m sure the previous theme I used (“Crisp”) had a page template type called archive. “Publish” doesn’t have this as far as I can see, but it would be incredibly frustrating if what I need is only available on the 404 error page!

    Any ideas?

    thanks,
    Paul

    You can use the archives shortcode on a page for an index of your posts:

    Thank you.

    I had an archive page before switching themes but it was empty in my new theme, so I didn’t think it would be as simple as this. (and didn’t think to look for a shortcode myself because I must have done it a different way before).
