Redecorating, again

  1. I know how you feel. I’ve been feeling the itch myself. The last change was SUCH a chore. I do like your Sitemap page. I may try something like that myself if I can figure out how.

    1. Search through WP info for “shortcodes” and they explain how to set the parameters. I used [archives limit=30], [archives type=monthly format=option showcount=true], and [archives format=option]. The categories list at the end does not update automatically like the shortcodes; it’s just a copy/paste of my drop-down categories list.

  2. I’d wondered about the categories list. I remember complaining (on the forums) about the inability to do archives by categories or tag when they first announced the shortcode. Being able to produce archives by tag would save me from having to manually update the appropriate contents page after each new post!

    1. One of the old themes (“Misty Look” or “Connections,” I think) offers a nice archive page template that updates automatically. It’s a shame all themes don’t have it.

... and that's my two cents
