The Archive Page Template is used to create a page to display a list of your site pages and your post archives by category, month, author, and recent posts.
To use the template, create a new page in your WordPress admin. You may call it Archive, or any title you wish.
Content entered into the page editor will not display on the page.
On the page edit screen, select the Archive template from the drop down in the Page Attributes box in the right sidebar, then click Publish.
You may wish to add a link to this page in your navigation menu so your site visitors can find it.
