SRG Clean Archives
It’s a simple plug-in designed to display your archive listings in a clean and uniform fashion.
It lists the Month / Year (links to that months archives), the day of the month the article was published, the title of the article
(permalink to article), and the number of comments that have been made on each article.
It also hides password protected articles from showing up in your archives list.
- Adding an admin configuration area to the WP dashboard.
- Turn on/off comments and comment counts showing in the output display
- Implementing a way to have only the posts in certain categories show up.
I’ve chosen to feature this plugin because it shows a lot of promise for the future. The plugin developments changed hands recently and the new author has already planned a roadmap for the plugin.
Clean Archives simply lists all the posts that you have made in a monthly fashion. This works as a great sitemap as also doubles up as a method for a visitor to go through your entire archives without having to browse page by page.
There isn’t much to write about the plugin except that it does what it is supposed to do.
The installation is easy, but after that you need to create an archives page and embed the code to display the archives. You can also display the archives in the sidebar.
Few things that I would like to see is to first display only the months and when the user clicks on it, the posts of that month should be loaded.
Another good feature would be the auto addition of the plugin page, without the need for the user to create the page.
Do you have any suggestions? It would be a great to encourage the development of this plugin.
