Almost everyday I hit the links at the bottom of the dashboard page and check the new plugins and themes available for WordPress.
On May 16 in the plugins post there was an archives plugin mentioned.
I had just been setting up a new theme one of our listings and found it had the ability to create a new page, select archive theme and publish. Up popped an archive page of all the pages and posts.
I thought that was great, and then running into the archive plugin for my exisiting sites was a must have.
I followed the link to the Clean Archive Plugin downloaded and installed it on this blog and the Tucson real estate blog.
It didn’t appear to function as it was supposed to, actually it didn’t function at all. The author Sean, I don’t know that he has a last name, made it easy to contact him by email on his Geek with Laptop blog.
I told him how I installed it and provided links and relevant information and moved on to another project.
In about two minutes the phone rang and it was Sean on the phone calling me about the issue. I’ll admit I was in total shock. We figures out I had downloaded about the time he uploaded a minor adjustment to fix an issue with the plugin and the wordpress visual editor. He had visited both blogs and suggested I download and install the plugin again and see if it worked now.
Sean had a very busy day on this release date and was tweaking and fixing on the fly and took the time to find our sites, get the contact phone number and call to get it working. Incredible, talk about impressed . . .
After uploading the new file all worked perfectly.
I now have an archives page on this site and the Tucson Real Estate in the News site.
Follow Sean’s instruction at the download and install link above and you will have a great additional page to your blog making it even easier for your readers to check your archives and adding a nice SEO feature to your blog.
Sean is one Geek with Laptop I’m bookmarking and adding to my blogroll.
That’s Sean’s avatar from MyBlogLog at the top of this post. Look for it around the blogosphere.
Thanks again Sean for a great plugin, and follow-up that totally blew me away.
