Archives Clarification

Chinwags writes about MT’s upcoming 3.1 and says:

That’s all I managed to squeeze out of him about the dynamic templating before I had to leave sad But I’m very excited about MT becoming dynamic. Unlike Wordpress, I think there will be the flexibility there always has been where you can create different archive templates (a feature I felt greatly lacking in WP)

Well, that’s not true, WordPress lets you create as many “templates” as you want.

The WP FAQ is an example. I use three different templates there, the default, a sorted archive, and a list of categories.

Much more is possible, in fact there is no limit to the different templates you can have with WordPress.


  1. Thanks, I guess I just don’t understand WP – I’m an MT junkie and too comfortable and used to it. I always thought that the archives fed off the index.php template and upon further clarification in #wordpress that was the impression I got !

  2. You are welcome. It is not neccesary to create different templates in WP, and the index changes with the parameters in the URL, and so a lot of folks assume it’s not possible to create new templates :)
