Re: Archive lists by month (section, category, etc) with 4.0.2

Is it possible to build an alphabetical archiv like this:

A
A……
A… …….. …
a…………….

B
b…….
B… ……. …
B……………

C
C……………

Sure. Add sortby="Title" sortdir="asc" to your article tag, to sort articles alphabetically. Next, add to your article form:

<txp:if_different>*<txp:php>echo substr(title(array()), 0, 1);</txp:php>*</txp:if_different>

I haven’t tested it, but that should work.

Hi How about if the archive list gets longer and longer and make the page too long? Can we seperate the list into several pages then?

If you’re using a separate page as an archive (necessitating the article_custom tag), then no, you can’t (because article_custom doesn’t allow for paging).

If you are using the article tag within it’s own section, then yes: simply lower the limit and add navigation tags. I do it for my blog’s archive.

How to use the article tag with its own section instead of a seperate page? Sorry I’m newbie, please tell me the steps like the one in faq, thank you.

Well, say you have a section named “blog”. In the page for “blog”, you’d put something like:

<txp:if_individual_article>
	<txp:article />
<txp:else />
			<txp:article limit="15" form="article_archive" />

			<p><txp:older>Previous</txp:older> 
				<txp:newer>Next</txp:newer></p>
</txp:if_individual_article>

Your article_archive form would remain the same.

Yeah it works. But using the <article/> tag or the <article_custom/> is there a way to say: Here’s a list of all the posts that beging with the letter A.

We have more than 2000 posts in our site, and we’d like to have the alphabetical lists working. But we can’t have a 2000 titles long.

A – B – C – D … etc would be nice to have as separate pages with all the posts.

See here’s the site: CanaldeVideos.com

I’m afraid not. A plugin may or may not be available which could do that; check the resources site.

Re: Archive lists by month (section, category, etc) with 4.0.2

In the monthly_article form I have:

<txp:if_different>
</dl>
<dl>
<dt><txp:posted format="%B %Y" /></dt>
</txp:if_different>
<dd><a href="<txp:permlink />" title="Permanent link to <txp:title />"><txp:title /></a></dd>

In the archive_list page template I have:

<dl><txp:article_custom limit=99999 form="monthly_article" /></dl>

Hope that helps
