Archives indexes for dates, terms, and authors

Blocks and shortcodes with many available settings, easily add indexes to improve blog navigation

Dates Index

Show years, months, and days with at least one post published in the hierarchical form for easy navigation through archives.

Terms Index

Show terms belonging to any registered taxonomies with at least one post published and all active terms listed.

Authors Index

Useful for multi-author blogs to list all the authors with one or more published posts, optionally with an avatar image.

Live Demos for blocks

Check out the live demo pages related to the Dev4Press blog, using a date-based archives index and three pages for 3 different taxonomies.

Dates Index

Dev4Press Blog only has one author, so author based index is pointless, but the dates-based index is quite long, starting way back in 2009.

Terms Index

Dev4Press blog uses custom taxonomies (even Category is a custom taxonomy replacing default one), for Categories, Products, and Topics. Each one uses slightly different customization settings and different colors.

Block Editor Blocks

The ArchivesPress plugin includes 3 blocks for the block editor (Gutenberg), allowing you visual control over block content and settings. These blocks have the same functionalities as shortcodes.

Block Settings

All 3 blocks are controlled via sidebar block settings, with all available settings grouped for easier use.

Misc and Typography

Depending on the block, there are various settings and basic Typography options to set.


Finally, to give more flexibility, blocks can control colors for various elements of the rendered blocks.

Shortcodes Configuration

The plugin doesn’t add any administration panels into WordPress; all settings are attributes for 3 available shortcodes.

To learn more about each currently available shortcode and see what attributes you can configure, check out the plugin knowledge base.

Each shortcode allows you to specify the post type to run index calculation, and each shortcode has some additional specialized attributes. Each shortcode comes with Compact and Basic layouts dealing with how the index items are rendered, and each shortcode allows you to specify colors, font size, and line height.
