WordPress.com Gets Archives Shortcode

Filed as News on August 3, 2009 5:16 pm

Repost This

WordPress.com has added support for a brand new shortcode, being [archives]. This little code snippet will output your archives, much like wp_get_archives() if you’re one of those theme-savvy stand-alone WordPress developers. Read more on the support page over at WordPress.com. It is likely this will be added to regular WordPress, either via a plugin, or as a feature in an upcoming release.

    You might want to check out the template tag shortcodes plugin by Justin Tadlock for self-hosted WordPress installations. Basically lets you use all the template tags in a shortcode format in your posts/pages.
