Clean Archives Reloaded

What Exactly Does This Plugin Do?

It creates a pretty list of all of the posts that you’ve made to your blog. To see an example, check out my archives page. Note that the image located there that shows the post times of recent posts is generated by a seperate plugin.

Credits / History:

This plugin is based on a concept (it no longer shares any common code) by Sebastian Schmieg for the archive page of his “Blix” theme. His code was later converted to a plugin by Shawn Grimes.

The drawback of both of those versions though was the sheer number of queries required (around 1 per month + 2 per post — it added up quick). So, I decided to make my own version which cached the output so that it was only regenerated when needed and otherwise just pulled with 1 query from the database. I was also given the idea by Chris O’Rourke to use Javascript to make the months collapsible as many people’s archives pages were getting rather long.

All of that was then replaced by the current version which uses WordPress functions and internal WordPress caching techniques to make only one query per page period.
