One way is to add a Category. It’s usually under Page on the left where you build the menu.
Is that what your looking for?

This is the vision I had in mind:
When one clicks on my website’s archives it would take them to a page that lists all my article titles in chronological order with their respective links.
Here’s an Example I took from Zenhabits:
9 The Habits of Happiness
4 How to Keep Habits Going During Travel
1 A Year of Living Without
28 The Key Habits of Organization
26 I Failed
20 Vegan Guide to San Francisco
17 The Futility of Comparing Yourself to Others
16 A Secret to Dad Greatness
13 Habits: A Simple Change in Mindset Changes Everything
10 The Worry That You’re Doing the Wrong Thing Right Now
7 6 Steps To Being More Creative
5 How I Finally Faced My Weight & Debt Problems
3 Working with the Obstacles in Your Path
31 The Simplify Your Day Challenge in June
29 9 Rules for a Simpler Day
23 The Little Book of Contentment
21 The Obstacle is the Path

Have you tried adding a custom link to your menu? Add your archive page as a custom link: http://www.anthonygalli.com/archives-2/February 4, 2014 at 6:18 pm #88640
How can I do that? I just want a simple list? I would actually like two archives. One with all my posts and another with just my Ultimate Guides.
In the Ultimate Guides one it will just be a list of all my guides.
In the general one I may want to include the date or month the post was originally published (such as the example above).
Thanks in advance for any help you could give me. I would greatly appreciate it.February 4, 2014 at 7:10 pm #88644
This might be what you want: http://www.carriedils.com/custom-post-type-archive-template/
You can also try to search for a plugin that lists posts or something. I usually like to create a WP page and template. –
Create a template named Ultimate Guides, then create a WP page named Ultimate Guides and assign it to the Ultimate Guide template. Customize the template to show what you want. You have to know PHP and have FTP access to add .php files to the theme. Are you comfortable trying this? I can try to help you if you’d like to do it this way.February 8, 2014 at 4:36 pm #89390
I added the code from here as you suggested: http://sridharkatakam.com/custom-archive-page-template-genesis/
I can’t get mine to look like his though? I added “page_custom_archive.php” to my child theme and I added the bottom code to the CSS. Either way it still looks the same as before. Please help!February 8, 2014 at 4:45 pm #89391
I think the last step is that you need to apply this template to a WP Page. So create a new page under Pages, and name it Archives (or whatever you want the title to be in the Menu). Then assign that page to your new template in the Page Attributes panel on the edit screen. Then view that page and see if your new changes show up.
Then you’ll have to add this new page to your menu instead of the custom link.
Let me know if you have trouble doing this!February 8, 2014 at 7:40 pm #89412
Thank you very much! I didn’t realize I needed to do that.
Keep being awesome!February 8, 2014 at 8:08 pm #89419
Great! Glad I could help.
Question, did you create the newsletter widget area / design yourself? I couldn’t find it in Streamline Pro I just started using it for a website and wondered how you had it.
