Archive-Pro-Matic Monthly Sub Post-By-Post

This is a test of a monthly archive that displays a sub-list of post-by-post archives.

[archives type="postbypost" sub_options="true" limit="10"/]


Here are examples of limiting by category. First, using cat_id

[archives type="postbypost" sub_options="true" cat_id="55" limit="10"/]


Next, Using taxonomy and term. This pair can be used for any taxonomy, including category:

[archives type="postbypost" sub_options="true" taxonomy="category" term="archive-pro-matic" limit="10"/]

Print-Pro-Matic Optional No-Print

In this example, the option to include a specific element is provide by using a checkbox. This feature was introduced in Print-Pro-Matic version 2.0-beta-210121

The default print target will be the article element. The image of the donkey has been assigned a class of ‘logo’. Now we need to create our print trigger and a checkbox:

[print-me title="Print Trigger"/]

<label><input type="checkbox" id="ppm_odnp" value=".logo">Donkey Free Print</label>

The checkbox must have an ID of ppm_odnp (because print-pro-matic optional do not print is a bit long). The value is the optional do not print selector, so .logo is for items with a class of ‘logo’, while #logo is an item with an id of ‘logo’.

Here is a working demonstration.

Archive-Pro-Matic Birthmonth Grid

Normally archives will be shown in a unordered list (ul) element:

[archives type="birthmonth" order="ASC" /]

    However, this (or any) unordered list can be formatted using css. Here is an example of how to turn the list in to a grid using the CSS columns attribute:

    First, we define a UL class that we can later assign:

    ul.grid {
        list-style: none;
        columns: 4;

    Now we just need to assign this class to our list:

    [archives type="birthmonth" order="ASC" class="grid" /]

      Archive-Pro-Matic Decade Filters

      As of Archive-Pro-Matic version 1.1.10 we have added two filters two filters for the decade archives list:

      Filter: apm_decade_archive_list

      apm_decade_archive_title is used to display how the decade appears in the archive list. The default list is YYYY’s, for example:


      apply_filters('apm_decade_archive_list', $text, $decade);

      This filter can be used to change how the decade list is displayed by adding the following to the function.php file in the child-theme.

      add_filter( 'apm_decade_archive_list', 'list_decade_range', 10, 2 );
      function list_decade_range($text, $decade){
         $text = $decade.' - '.($decade + 9);
         return $text;

      Filter: apm_decade_archive_title

      apm_decade_archive_title is used to display the title of the decade archive page. The default title is The YYYY’s for example:
      The 2000’s

      apply_filters('apm_decade_archive_title', $title, $decade);

      And would be used by adding the following to the child theme’s function.php file:

      add_filter( 'apm_decade_archive_title', 'decade_range_title', 10, 2 );
      function decade_range_title($title, $decade){
         $title .= ' ('.$decade.' - '.($decade + 9).')';
         return $title;

      Here is an example shortcode that will list an archive of posts by decade:

      [archives type="decade"/]
      this is a caption

      Archive-Pro-Matic Birthday and Birthmonth types

      This is a test of two new types of Archive-Pro-Matic archive lists:
      Birthday: Show all posts published on the same day of the year
      Birth Month: Show all post published on the same month, regardless of year

      Birth Month

      [archives type="birthmonth" order="ASC" /]


        [archives type="birthday" order="ASC"/]
          [archives type="birthday" order="ASC" sub_options="true" sub_order="ASC"/]
            [archives type="birthday" order="ASC" sub_options="true" sub_order="ASC" show_empty="true"/]
              [archives type="birthday" order="ASC" sub_options="block" sub_order="ASC" show_empty="true" tag="div" sub_ul_class="my_slim_ul" li_class="block_archive_item" empty_class="grey"/]
