Templates – Archive

The Archive options provide you with control over your site’s Archive posts.
What are Archives? When your articles (posts) disappear from the home page, they descend into the depths of your site, landing in a place known as the Archives. When a user searches your site, they usually land on an Archive post.

To access the Template options, in your WordPress Administration Panels go to Appearance > Theme Options > Templates > Archive.
