Narchives for WordPress 2.x

For those of you who aren’t familiar with WordPress, narchives is WeblogToolCollection’s “sortable nicer archives” WordPress sitemap plugin — meaning that you can sort the sitemap by date, title, category, year and author. (I have no idea what the “nicer” refers to.) At any rate, I’ve been entirely pleased with it, although it’s a little hurdle to figure out how to configure it if you want to make changes.

Unfortunately, WeblogToolCollection did not update narchives for WordPress 2.x and has been, at least so far as I an determine, silent on the matter. I’ve now found an version converted for WordPress 2.x at JWurster.us. No idea if s/he’d gotten the original author’s permission, or even if it works. But there it is.

    As far as I can tell the code works correctly with 2.0.4 however it displays funky. When I say funky I mean it doesn’t maintain the side menus and with the default theme it blows away the theme to make a 100% wide page. I am going to play more with it and see what I can find.

    Regards,
    Phil

    I haven’t tried it yet, Phil, but I will do so in the next week.

    To be honest, I recode the layout (not just the design) of WordPress because I do things a little differently than the default. For instance, I’d like the side menus on every page, not just on the home page (I don’t know why they’ve done that; seems unintuitive to me).

    I’ll try to find out where the problem occurs and will post it here.

    As it turns out on my install of JWurster’s narchives for WordPress 2.x, it worked fine except for the Category view, which displayed only one post.

    So for me, it’s back to DagonDesign’s SiteMap plugin.

    It’s a shame, because I really did like the sortable aspect of narchives.

    Okay; I’ve been playing with narchivesj.php on WordPress 2.x.x. It now displays all posts, but drops the sidebar in Category view only. (It leaves the search box at the top of the page, but cuts off after that.)

  5. Diane Vigil says:

    This is late, but I’ve found that the sidebar retains links (and everything else) if you move this code to the bottom (of the sidebar):

    <?php /* If this is the frontpage */ if ( is_home() || is_page() || is_single() || is_category() || is_day() || is_month() || is_year() || is_search() || is_404() || is_author() ) { ?>

Have your say ...
