Finally, after removing a couple of idiotic bugs and testing some corner cases, the Archives plugin is working well enough for daily use, making this site a lot more usable for the casual visitor. Sure, people who know what a Wiki is will go straight over to Recent Changes, but regular folk kept clicking on the Archives link and getting pretty much nowhere (since it was essentially a static page left over from the migration).
I’ve also forced a (somewhat overdue) rebuild of all the site content (which I do every time something like a new plugin is put online), and you should be able to have a go at the Archives once the indexer is done with the (currently 4803) pages on this site.
And yes, there is still at least one bug – but I will get rid of it when I add some jQuery goodness to the table. There are other plugins that need the same treatment, so I might as well write a common solution.
Now, back to a good book. The other umpteen things I need to fix in Yaki before doing a new release can wait a bit more.
