Archived Articles Module
This Module shows Articles that have been set to Archived. The Articles are available behind a Month/Year directory list, as shown in the example below.
Selecting a month link shows a screen like the one below.
Articles are stored by creation date not archival date. Only those months and years with archived Articles will be displayed. This list is generated automatically.
The Module Type name for this is "mod_archive". This module does not relate to any other component. This Module provides functionality that is similar to the Archived Article List Layout available on the Menu Item Manager New / Edit screen.
