[wp-hackers] Custom Post Type Archives

WordPress doesn't, by default, support pretty permalinks for date-based
post-type archives. You can append query strings to the CPT archive URL and
accomplish what you're looking to do, but if you want nice permalinks, you
need to manually add the rewrite rules.

I added an example at http://pastebin.com/80UEbXs8 that creates the
necessary rules. I pulled this from a project that had many custom post
types, hence the foreach loop. As the function name implies, this code is
tied to the *generate_rewrite_rules* action. Also, to avoid conflicts with
post names, etc., the URLs include a *date* slug between the post type slug
and the date pieces of the URL. This may or may not be needed for your
project, and removing line 14 from the example will eliminate the
*date* element
from the URLs if you don't want/need it.
