Updated on January 11, 2018

The blog archive is an accumulation of blog posts. It contains all your blog posts in one place.

In this article we will explain how to access the blog archive and it’s settings. Note that if you are looking to create a blog you should check out the creating a blog post and displaying blog posts articles.


Configuring the Blog Archive

Archives are special auto-generated pages in WordPress that show a list of blog posts. There are limited options in Ken to configure this auto-generated page. We instead recommend that you add a page and use the Blog Shortcode to generate a more configurable archive page for your blog loop.

To access the blog archive settings:

1From the WordPress left menu, go to Theme Settings > Blog.
