LH Archived Post Status

Lýsing

Note the latest realease has some major backend changes. It incorporates Imaths Wp status library. It works perfectly on my setups, and seems to be working well elsewhere, but if it breaks anything on yours let me know in the support forum and I will address the issue immediately

This plugin allows you to archive your WordPress content similar to the way you archive your e-mail. Unlike other archiving solutions though this actually does it all and does it properly

  • Makes a new post status available in the drop down called Archived
  • Hides or removes your content without having to trash the content
  • Content can either be hidden entirely from public view or simply from the main loop and feed and pages, with other solutions you can only hide it from public view.
  • Allows you to add a label to the title of those posts/pages etc that are archived
  • Allows you to add a message to the top of the post/page etc that the content is no longer up too date
  • Allows you to set an archiving date after which content is automatically changed to having an archived status
  • Compatible with posts, pages and custom post types

This plugin is ideal for sites where certain kinds of content is not meant to be evergreen

Check out our documentation for more information on why and how to use this new status.

All tickets for the project are being tracked on GitHub.

Uppsetning

  1. Upload the entire lh-archived-post-status folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. Navigate to Settings->Reading and set the visibility and archiving message

SOS

Isn’t this the same as using the Draft or Private statuses?

Actually, no, they are not the same thing.

The Draft status is a „pre-published“ status that is reserved for content that is still being worked on. You can still make changes to content marked as Draft, and you can preview your changes.

The Private status is a special kind of published status. It means the content is only available to certain logged in users.

The Archived post status, on the other hand, is meant to be a „post-published“ status. Once a post has been set to Archived the content is either hidden entirely from non logged in viewers or removed from the front page and feed (but still available on singular pages). This behaviour is controlled in the settings screen.

Doesn’t this do the same thing as the other archiving plugin in the repository?

Actually it does more! Unlike the other plugin content archived with this plugin can still be available to non logged in visitors (depends on plugin settings) and just removed from the front page and xml feeds (with a custom message can also be added to flag to visitors that the content is no longer up too date). Alternately it can be hidden entirely (to non logged in viewers).

Can’t I just trash old content I don’t want anymore?

Yes, there is nothing wrong with trashing old content. However it will be hidden from non logged in viewers.

However, WordPress automatically purges trashed posts every 7 days (by default), so it will be gone.

This is what makes the Archived post status handy. You can unpublish content without having to delete it forever.

How can I view a listing of my archived content on its own archive pagelisting all archived posts, pages etc?

This not not part of my plugin per se but it is easily done.

The easiest way would be to install a plugin that allows you to query by post_status eg: https://wordpress.org/plugins/display-posts-shortcode/

and input the shortcode with the post_status of archive:, eg [display-posts post_status=”archive”]

If you want to customise the display that shortcode has plenty of arguments. There are also other shortcodes tha can do this (just search the repository).

What if something does not work?

LH Archived Post Status, and all https://lhero.org plugins are made to WordPress standards. Therefore they should work with all well coded plugins and themes. However not all plugins and themes are well coded (and this includes many popular ones).

If something does not work properly, firstly deactivate ALL other plugins and switch to one of the themes that come with core, e.g. twentyfifeen, twentysixteen etc.

If the problem persists please leave a post in the support forum: https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/lh-archived-post-status/. I look there regularly and resolve most queries.

What if I need a feature that is not in the plugin?

This is a very useful plugin in certain situations. The plugin author was very responsive when a conflict occurred with another plugin, and worked at fixing it until the conflict was resolved. Highly recommended if you have the need to archive old content.

El plugin lleva desactualizado ya un tiempo, aun así, sigue teniendo la mayoría de su funcionalidad funcionando correctamente. No obstante, tiene algunas peculiaridades que consideramos bugs. - Solo podremos archivar el contenido que esté actualmente en estado publicado, pues, si no lo está, no aparecerá en la lista de opciones del item del post, la opción de archivar. Es una limitación que se echa de menos, pero, parece que este plugin lleva tiempo sin estar mantenido. De ahí, nuestras 3 estrellas. Nos gustaría que implementara la característica. - Permitir archivar independientemente del estado del articulo (Privado, Publico, Con contraseña) -- Actualmente solo podremos archivar si está en estado publicado.

This is a valuable and only (at review time) plugin to hide posts or pages without deleting them. Simple to use and very effective!

This plugin worked to archive some old content on a site. I used this plugin with the Content Views plugin to display the posts on an Archive page sorted by status.

Wondering why there are so few reviews here. This is must be the only plugin of this kind at the whole WP plugins repository that allows you to exclude your pages, posts, and custom post types from visibility on your website but to leave access to them by unchanged direct links (for search engines too). Perfect for online stores for hiding (permanent or temporal, no matter) outdated, seasonal, and out-of-stock products if your store plugin does not support that feature: your customers will not see outdated content, but incoming traffic from search engines and by direct links will not be lost. And page rank too. Goood.
