:helpme:

my problem is a little different.

my site's index page is recognized by google.

none of the individual articles are indexed though.

if i apply the above fix, will that make articles that I've already posted readable by googlebot?

Is there any sort of 'archives' plug-in available?

Only if it visits the old pages occasionally (index.php?page=2, etc.).

Tom Willet's site index script should help here.

I've tried to summarize the above and a few other tips on "search engine optimisation" in a new FAQ entry:
