Hard to say but here are two observations.

A regular article url is:
http://www.society805.com/jupgrade/index.php/mind-body-spirit-sept

An archive url is:
http://www.society805.com/jupgrade/index.php/archive?id=649:note-from-the-editor-august

So you'd think this would work and it doesn't:
http://www.society805.com/jupgrade/index.php/note-from-the-editor-august

So I'm wondering if there's anything wrong with
- the archive menu setup
- the archive search engine friendly url setup
- the archive articles publishing date or status setup

Try turning off search engine friendly links, clear cache and see what happens.

Ok, I did that now I can open items but it does not show any of the stories> Is there a way to move the archives over to K2? And then set up an Archived K2 section.

I am using Joomla 1.7 and K2 version v2.5

It doesn't show the stories?
Sure if you move the articles and don't depend on the archiving feature then it's a simple fix to just do that work.

Is there an Archiving feature for K2? Maybe that would fix the issue.. Otherwise how can I get the stories showing?

sorry I thought you meant publishing each story and creating a pseudo archive. I don't much about k2.

Ok, well now I had to turn on the keep Search Engine Friendly URLs, because I turned them off to make the archives worked which only allowed me to open the stories with no stories there, and then the rest of the site did not work, none of my plugins - it started going haywire. So.. now my archives say under maintenance.. What do I do?

There are so many reasons the archives might be broken - plugins, mis configuration, bad database. You could hire someone to debug it. But I like the idea I thought you had before - manually copy the stories to a specific category you name "archives" and display that.

Ok, I think I can do that.. I just hope there may be another fix - is there any plugin that could solve this problem?

No, I mean there's a bug in the system that requires attention.

How do I diagnose this? What I did is I still have the old site - but I changed all the menu items to the new site and am using old archives currently. But this is a temporary fix. Let me know how to fix the issue.

are you saying the archives are from the old site's database?
when yo say you changed all the menu items, what does that mean?

Ok, The old site is technically active at this point in time, but I have the domain name pointing to the new website. The old site I went in and changed all of the links so if they click on archives it is still bringing up the new site, otherwise it would direct them to the old site and the navigation would be the old site. I pretty much put a bandaid on the current problem. I want to actually fix it.
