Another days ago, I find this news when see wordpress support page. I think this is a new news for us, especially who use wordpress.com services only. Why for wordpress.com user only? Read this article first to know what are the different between wordpress.com vs wordpress.org. This shortcode only work with wordpress that hosted on wordpress.com.
How to do that? I have some blog that hosted on wordpress.com. OK, this is the way, just make a new post, or a new page, or use a text widget, then write this code
[archives] and publish it. In default, this action will generate all your post, from the latest to newest, and give a link to it.
There is muce option that you perhap to give a try.
|type||The type of archives list to display||yearly, monthly, weekly, daily, postbypost||postbypost|
|format||How to display the archives list||option (drop-down menu), html (unordered list), custom (for use with the “before” and “after” parameters)||html|
|limit||The number of archive entries to display||Any valid number||No limit|
|showcount||Display post count of each archive entry||true, false||false|
|before||Text to go before each archive entry||Any string of text or HTML tag from here||none|
|after||Text to go after each archive entry||Any string of text or HTML tag from here||none|
This code will generate a link to all your post within 12 months from the date now on
[archives type=monthly limit=12]
Same as above, but we show out post count in every months
[archives type=monthly limit=12 showcount=true]
Show your 18 days activities.
[archives type=daily limit=18]
This code will generate a link to your 32 posts from the newest.
Maybe for your needs, you can combine the option to fulfill it. OK, that's all guys, have a nice blogging. Rahim Rasyid
