How to Beautifully Formatted Archives by Month Separated by Year

Are you looking for a way to display a beautifully formatted archives list of months separated by year? While there’s probably a plugin for this, we have created a quick code snippet that you can use to display formatted archives by month separated by year in WordPress.


All you have to do is add this code to your theme’s functions.php file or in a site-specific plugin:

functionwp_custom_archive($args= '') {
    global$wpdb, $wp_locale;
    $defaults= array(
        'limit'=> '',
        'format'=> 'html', 'before'=> '',
        'after'=> '', 'show_post_count'=> false,
        'echo'=> 1
    $r= wp_parse_args( $args, $defaults);
    extract( $r, EXTR_SKIP );
    if( ''!= $limit) {
        $limit= absint($limit);
        $limit= ' LIMIT '.$limit;
    // over-ride general date format ? 0 = no: use the date format set in Options, 1 = yes: over-ride
    $archive_date_format_over_ride= 0;
    // options for daily archive (only if you over-ride the general date format)
    $archive_day_date_format= 'Y/m/d';
    // options for weekly archive (only if you over-ride the general date format)
    $archive_week_start_date_format= 'Y/m/d';
    $archive_week_end_date_format= 'Y/m/d';
    if( !$archive_date_format_over_ride) {
        $archive_day_date_format= get_option('date_format');
        $archive_week_start_date_format= get_option('date_format');
        $archive_week_end_date_format= get_option('date_format');
    $where= apply_filters('customarchives_where', "WHERE post_type = 'post' AND post_status = 'publish'", $r);
    $join= apply_filters('customarchives_join', "", $r);

    $output= '


        $query= "SELECT YEAR(post_date) AS `year`, MONTH(post_date) AS `month`, count(ID) as posts FROM $wpdb->posts $join $where GROUP BY YEAR(post_date), MONTH(post_date) ORDER BY post_date DESC $limit";
        $key= md5($query);
        $cache= wp_cache_get( 'wp_custom_archive', 'general');
        if( !isset( $cache[ $key] ) ) {
            $arcresults= $wpdb->get_results($query);
            $cache[ $key] = $arcresults;
            wp_cache_set( 'wp_custom_archive', $cache, 'general');
        } else{
            $arcresults= $cache[ $key];
        if( $arcresults) {
            $afterafter= $after;
            foreach( (array) $arcresultsas$arcresult) {
                $url= get_month_link( $arcresult->year, $arcresult->month );
                /* translators: 1: month name, 2: 4-digit year */
                $text= sprintf(__('%s'), $wp_locale->get_month($arcresult->month));

                $year_text= sprintf('

  • %d

, $arcresult->year);

                if( $show_post_count)
                    $after= ' ('.$arcresult->posts.')'. $afterafter;
                $output.= ( $arcresult->year != $temp_year) ? $year_text: '';
                $output.= get_archives_link($url, $text, $format, $before, $after);
                $temp_year= $arcresult->year;

    $output.= '


    if( $echo)
Add this snippet in your index.php file or any other template file where you want to display the formatted archives.
