Smarter Archives 2.6 is now available to download from the WordPress plugin repository. Big changes include internationalization support (with a Spanish translation included for now), the addition of a new shortcode, and the plugin’s options are now fully documented.

Now, instead of having to use a PHP call to use the template tag (dangerous if you use a runPHP-style plugin), you can just use the smarter-archives shortcode to include it anywhere. See the usage section for what options are available to customize the output.


  • Standardized i18n calls — fully translatable
  • Added a POT file for translating
  • Added a lang folder
  • Spanish (es_ES) translation added — thanks to Andrew Kurtis of WebHostingHub
  • New shortcode: smarter-archives, see Usage for more details
  • Fixed bug: order now actually does something
