Improve your WordPress archive pages by adding rich content to them! Now you can customise your category archive pages, author archive pages, and custom post type (CPT) archive pages with unique content and unlimited elements.
Archive Page Content Plugin currently works with Gutenberg, Classic Editor, and Oxygen Builder. It should also handle any other page builder which stores your layout in the page content. So you can build your archive page content however you like.
Using the plugin is simple. Let's use an example where you have a WooCommerce store with a product category called 'Dog Beds', which exists at the URL: https://smoothwebsites.net/product-category/dog-beds/.
Et voila, the content you created in the Archive Page will be pulled into your Product Category and displayed on the frontend wherever the Product Description usually displays.
If you're building a custom theme, or using a page builder to create your Archive, the shortcode can be used in these too.
If you want to add content to an author archive, e.g. https://smoothwebsites.net/author/alex-tester/, add the shortcode to the 'Biographical Info' field.
An archive page in WordPress is used to display a collection of posts grouped by taxonomy (e.g. category or tag), author, date, or post type.
This is for anyone who wants to more easily manage the content that displays in their archive pages. SEOs in particular may find it useful as it enables them to add optimised and helpful content to the page to go alongside the archive links, which could improve chances of ranking that page well in search engines.
The Archive Pages themselves are not public, and are therefore not accessible to any user or search engine on the frontend. The only place your content will be seen is on the Archive Page where you add the shortcode.
