ELA Lives!

One of our favorite plug-ins — Extended Live Archives — though long-neglected has recently risen from the dead thanks to Jason Hansen at theglitch.ws.

Archives are one of the lesser-developed aspects of WordPress, and this plugin, while years old, still hasn’t been improved on in terms of simplicity and function. Yet the author stopped development in ’06 or ’07, before the release of WordPress 2.3. From then on a series of patches appeared from different authors, always coming to the rescue but often difficult to track down. For the uninitiated and impatient, it was a bit of an ordeal. No more. Thanks, Jason!

If you want to see ELA in action on WordPress 2.7 from one install (no patches!), check out our archives.
