posts about lazyone's archives plugin.

when i noticed that the spielwiese‘s archives list was pretty long (one line per month, that accumulates over time), i looked for a way to turn this into a tree which is by default folded together to a short list of years. after a short search, i found the wp-dtree plugin, which works nice, but doesn’t really do with the archives what i wanted to do. so i created my own plugin, which uses wp-dtree’s javascript code to create an archives tree as i wanted it. now i polished the plugin a bit, and decided to upload it here, so other interested persons can try it out.
to use it, you must have the wp-dtree-30 plugin installed and activated. otherwise, you won’t see anything. you can download my plugin here. just unzip it into your wordpress’ plugin directory, activate it and add the “lazyone’s archives.” widget to your sidebar and configure it as you wish. as usual, no warranty for anything.
note that you need a new enough version of wordpress. wp-dtree-30 requires wordpress 3.0.1, and my plugin requires wordpress 2.8 (for the new widget interface). so if you have a wordpress installation older than 3.0.1, either upgrade or don’t use the plugins.
