Posts from previous years are organized by date under the following links:
Archiving a post takes three edits. All of these steps can be made thru the BULK ACTION > EDIT function on the POST page.
1] Change the post author to ARCHIVIST PHA. WordPress is setup so that content from this author will not be indexed by external search-bots.
2] Change the category to ARCHIVED.
3] Switch the SHOW IN SEARCH RESULTS setting to HIDDEN.
Changing a post’s author to Archivist PHA excludes that content from further external (SEO) searches. Recent year’s posts are still visible to internal searches.
Post status should remain PUBLISHED. Changing a post’s status (not category) to ARCHIVED restricts that content to admin access only. ARCHIVED posts will not appear on this page.
