Archive Plus is an enhanced version of the Grav Archives plugin with more configuration options and the ability to show a blogger like hierarchical archive menu for links grouped by month and/or year.

Table of Contents:


Archive Plus shares many features with the Grav Archives plugin, e.g. it automatically appends a "year/month" taxonomy to all pages and provides a plugins/archiv_plus/archive_plus.html.twig template, which you can include in a blog sidebar to render links into a year/month/post format useful for blogs, but enhances them in an intuitive way.

Currently it

  • adds a blogger like hierarchical (year/month/post) archive menu
  • has (full) multi-language support (requires Grav 0.9.33+)
  • integrates in Admin panel
  • provides a custom archive page (under development)
  • and a per site configuration

For more informations, please check the Installation and update guide.


The Archive Plus plugin comes with some sensible default configuration, that are pretty self explanatory:

Config Defaults

# Global plugin configurations

enabled: true                 # Set to false to disable this plugin completely
built_in_css: true            # Use built-in CSS of the plugin

# Global and page specific configurations

  counter: true               # Toggle to show number of items before the link
  year: true                  # Toggle to show year
  month: true                 # Toggle to show month
  items: true                 # Toggle to show items

  year: 2                     # Limit to show only the last n years
  month: 12                   # Limit to show only the last n months
  items: 40                   # Limit to show only the last n items

  by: date                    # Ordering of items
  dir: desc                   # Ordering of items (asc or desc)

filter_combinator: and        # The filter combinator to use to combine several filters
filters:                      # Filter to select which items should be shown
  category: blog

If you need to change any value, then the best process is to copy the archive_plus.yaml file into your users/config/plugins/ folder (create it if it doesn't exist), and then modify there. This will override the default settings.

Template Override

Something you might want to do is to override the look and feel of the archives, and with Grav it is super easy.

Copy the template file templates/plugins/archiv_plus/archive_plus.html.twig into the templates/partials folder of your custom theme, and that is it.


You can now edit the override and tweak it however you prefer.

Note: Don't touch or edit the template file templates/plugins/archiv_plus/archives.html.twig in the templates/partials folder! This file serves as a compatibility fallback for those themes which expect the Archives plugin to be installed.


You can contribute at any time! Before opening any issue, please search for existing issues and review the guidelines for contributing.
