SRG Clean Archives

Welcome to the official SRG Clean Archives project page.

As of version 2.1 I’ve taken over development of the SRG Clean Archives WordPress Plug-in originally written by Shawn Grimes.

Plugin description: This plugin is designed to display your archive listings in a clean and uniform fashion that’s Search Engine friendly on a dedicated page or in your sidebar.

Plugin Features: It lists the Month / Year, shows total post count for the month (enabled by default), the day of the month the article was published, the title of the article (permalink to article) and the number of comments (enabled by default) that have been made on each article.

If wanted, you can toggle on/off the moo.fx for collapsing months (on by default). If moo.fx is not enabled, your full archive display is shown but it’s still using the caching function.

For those of you who’d like to have the standard WordPress paged archives as well, there is now an option to toggle on/off the link display (on by default) which reads “Detailed Monthly Archive” and goes to your paged archive view for that month.

You can also toggle on/off hiding password protected post display (off by default) from showing up in your archives list.

All the above features are controlled via the plugin admin page (see readme.txt for details).

Plugin Localization: Per a few user requests, the plugin is now completely localized using language files created with poEdit.

Current available language packs: English (default – built into plugin), French – Français and German – Deutsch. They can be downloaded at the bottom of this page.

See the plugin readme.txt file for more information on how to use language files with SRG Clean Archives.

Plugin Demo: My archives page.

How do I use it: View the plugin readme.txt file for more information on how to install and activate the plugin as well as creating your archives page and adding custom CSS style to it.
