WordPress: Create custom archive page

This article shows how to create a custom archive page for your wordpress blog. In the following archive page, I have displayed yearly archive, monthly archive, category wise archive and all post archive. So, the newly created archive page will be a kind of all-in-one archive page.

Here is the step-by-step guide:

1) Create a file archives.php

2) Write the following code in it.

3) Upload it (archives.php) in your current wordpress theme directory.

4) From WordPress admin panel, create a page name Archives.

5) For this page, set Template to Archives. i.e. Attributes -> Templates = Archives (In WP 2.8, you should find ‘Attributes’ under ‘Update Page’ button).

6) Publish the page and you are done.
