    I am trying to add a month year archive to my blog for Sitefinity 4 where users can look at posts from a specific month. I found the "Archive" widget in Sitefinity 4 under the "Navigation" section in the toolbox. I drag it to my page and it renders nothing. What is required to make this control render?

    Thanks,

    Chris

    Hello Conrad Ehinger,

    To make it work you need to add a Blog Post widget on your page. Take a look at this article from our Documentation. It describes in details how to configure the Archive widget.

    Jen,

    I had this answered in a support ticket. I was actually told that I have to edit the ContentType field in the property listing. That seemed to work

    Thanks

    Chris

    thanks for the update Conrad, do you mean that you placed this archive widget on a page without any other control and it worked after setting the ContentType?

    PS for anyone else who might be reading this, here is the link I think Jen meant to include: http://www.sitefinity.com/documentation/user-guide/displaying-content-using-widgets/navigation-widgets-group/configuring-the-archive-widget.aspx
