Simple Yearly Archive

Simple Yearly Archive is a rather neat and simple WordPress plugin that allows you to display your archives in a year-based list. It works mostly like the usual WP archive, but displays all published posts seperated by their year of publication. That said, itโ€™s also possible to restrict the output to certain categories, and much more.

The default WordPress “Archive” widget is nice, but once you get more than a couple years worth of archives it starts to take up a lot of space and as such become very ugly. This plugin deals with the problem rather nicely by allowing you to include the archive anywhere you wish. For example, I put it on a page (aptly) named “Archive”.
The one thing that you will probably want to do right off the bat is to configure a date-format for the posts and display post-count per year.
