Iv got this code in my blog.php:

<?php wp_get_archives( array( 'type' => 'monthly', 'limit' => 12 ) ); ?>

It links to:


My page only loads the header and footer - I think its the main loop - what do I have to do, do I need another file?
Or say where to output the code?


  • There is not enough information here to help. In what way does the page not load? Redirect? Blank page? What? Is there a public URL that you can provide?

1 Answer 1


The date.php, archive.php, and index.php files control the date archive output. You need to check the contents of those files, in respective order, to find the problem.

If WordPress can't find date.php, it will check for archive.php, and load that if found. Otherwise, index.php will be used to display date archives.
