The brand new free Plugin smart Archive Page Remove is out. This Plugin allows you to completely remove Archive Pages that are automatically generated by WordPress.
WordPress automatically generates several archive pages for your posts. Even if you do not want to use these Pages they exist and they can be accessed by their automated generated URL. The smart Archive Page Remove Plugin allows you to remove Archive Pages you do not need for your blog.
This could be useful to e.g. remove the Author Archive Page on an single author blog or to remove the Tag Archive Page if you do not use Tags.
Removed Archive Pages are no longer accessible and cause a 404 page not found error. This is important because so Search Engines know that the page does not exist and has to be removed from the search index.
