Archiving Content with WordPress

When you create a post on your WordPress site, you can file that post under a category that you specify. This feature makes for a very nifty archiving system in which you and your readers can find articles/posts that you’ve placed within a specific category. Articles that you post are also sorted and organized by date (day/month/year) to make it easy to locate articles that you’ve posted at a certain time. The archives page on my Web site (see it at http://ewebscapes.com/sitemap) contains a chronological archive section, where you find a list of months followed by the content I published in that particular month and year. Clicking the date on that page drops down a listing of articles from that month, which are linked to the individual articles, as shown in Figure 4-1.
