Usage

Archivist has 2 snippets - one to display the month/year/day listing ("Archivist"), and the other to display archive results ("getArchives").

Examples

Display archives for your site, with a Month listing for Resources with parents 54 and 55, and then on a Resource ID of 123, display the Resources for that month.

The call for the Month listing:

[[!Archivist? &parents=`54,55` &target=`123`]]

And then on your archives page:

[[!getArchives?
   &parents=`54,55`
   &toPlaceholder=`archives`
]]

<h2>[[!+arc_month_name]] [[!+arc_year]] Archives</h2>

[[!+archives]]
