Adding new pages and trashing them is not that hard. But once in a while, you may want to archive older posts without trashing them. Archived Post Status for WordPress is just the plugin for the job. It is a simple plugin that makes a new post status, allowing you to ‘Archive’ posts, pages, and custom post types. An archived post is unpublished without getting trashed.
Archived Post Status works for posts, pages, and custom post types. You can change the status of your posts and pages like before, but will have a new status to choose from. It might not be useful for every site, but those with a site that has lots of old content might find it helpful.
