Hi

I am trying to create a custom Archive Page, and have put the ID of an existing page into the required field but it does not work for me.

Can you confirm the correct format of this field - I have entered "126" (which is the page number)?

Thanks

Matt

Putting the ID is right but that's the ID of a post, not a page. The only page you seem to have so far is http://matterstoday.com/?page_id=2 - "About matterstoday.com"

Put the ID of that page (= 2) as the archive page ID to test it, or create a new page at Site Admin -> Pages -> Add new

Hi

Again, many thanks for a very quick and helpful response. I shall certainly be making a contribution shortly - the labourer is worthy of his/her hire. :-)

I tried out your suggestion, and concluded that I want to leave that idea for a while. Can you help me, though - when I click on say Archives (Feb 2009) [there are currently 3 posts there], it will only display the most recent one.

Am I correct in thinking that it is not good practice to set it up to give a potentially long display of all a months postings on one page, and that I should reintroduce a navigation tab with the post (Next/Previous Navigation, I think you call it)?

On blogspot (which I was using before I found Wordpress), it lists all the posts for the month in line, which at this stage I would prefer.

Matt

With Wordpress you set the amount of posts per page and that applies to homepage and all other multi post pages such as category pages, archive pages, search result pages etc...

The setting is done at Settings -> Reading and you appear to have set it to 1. That's why you have only 1 post on the homepage too.

At Atahualpa Theme Options -> Posts or Excerpts you can set whether to show full posts or excerpts on the various page types

Atahualpa 3.2 will have the option to display XX full posts on the homepage followed by excerpts

There's room for improvement in that area in both Wordpress and Atahualpa and I'll see if I can add more fine tuned options regarding placement, length, amount of posts/excerpts on the various page types.

Thanks again - it will certainly be useful having the new options on the homepage in 3.2.

I use permalinks and my pages don't show a page ID in their URI. I created an empty page (named Site). What do I use for Archive Page id for that page? I tried putting Site in the ID but nothing is built in the page.

I found out how to do this. I used page preview and the ID was in the previewed URL.

The missing limit is a bug. Thank you for finding. I will fix this in the next release. If you want to fix it in your version, replace in inde.php line 220

PHP Code:
<?php wp_get_archives('type=' $bfa_ata['archives_date_type'] . '&show_post_count=' . ($bfa_ata['archives_date_count'] == "Yes" '1' '0')); ?>
with

PHP Code:
<?php wp_get_archives('type=' $bfa_ata['archives_date_type'] . '&show_post_count=' . ($bfa_ata['archives_date_count'] == "Yes" '1' '0') . ($bfa_ata['archives_date_limit'] != "" '&limit=' $bfa_ata['archives_date_limit'] : '')); ?>
To put the archive at the bottom of the front page, make a static page the front page and put the ID of that page into Atahualpa Theme Options -> Archives Page -> Archives Page ID

The Archive page is not supposed to list the latest posts. It'll display the content of a specific page, plus archives of posts and/or categories

The ID is always a number. With permalinks on you won't see the number in the URL, you'd have to go to edit the page, then you'll see the ID (the number) in the browser status bar and in the URL field, too
