Create An Archive Index Of Your WordPress.com Blog Posts

January 2, 2013

Recently I added an archive page to Bookmarks4Techs which is a listing of links (with titles) to every article I ever posted at What’s On My PC. When I came up with the idea I had to find a way to generate the list (which, at the time, was approximately 1450 articles) without expending a lot of work. I had some ideas up my sleeve; however, it goes back to an adage that I have; “If you can think of it, someone else has done it!”.

If you are using WordPress.com as your blogging platform, you will find that WordPress already has some shortcoding available that will allow to generate archive listings, in various types of formats. To generate the list that I needed, it was as simple as starting up the blogging editor in my account and inserting the shortcode [ archives ] in the editor, then clicking on Preview and voila’ there was a list of every article I ever posted in the order that they were posted. I simply then copied and pasted the listing into the Bookmarks4Techs archive page.

NOTE: In the example I used above, there are no spaces, between the brackets and the word archives. I had to place spaces between the brackets and the word archives to prevent WordPress from automatically generating the list of all my articles.

You can also insert additional archive shortcodes that will allow you to customize your lists.  See the examples provided below.  You can get more instruction and information on using these shortcodes [here] :

Free Icon Resources For Graphic Editing Purposes, Blogging, Program Launchers, etc…

April 3, 2012

I really get into program launchers and avoid the Windows Start menu altogether. Right now, my program launcher of choice is XLaunchPad. What I like about XLaunchPad is that it gives me the ability to customize and change the program icons that are used to launch my programs. As a result, this leads me to looking for good quality icon resources…

As the title of this post suggests, icons can be used for a variety of purposes including graphic editing, desktop publishing, PowerPoint presentations, blog articles, etc… Choosing the right icon can make all the difference in the world in the final product.

There are currently four sources that I use to find that special icon and I thought I would share those sources with you…
