There is no date-based archive for a category. The /category/[slug]/ pages are already “archives”, in that they display old posts over different pages.

The different pages can be accessed by adding page/2/, page/3/, … to the URL. The template tags to add these links are next_posts_link() and previous_posts_link().

If you want to add a date-based layer to your category archives, you can add a rewrite rule to match a year, optional month and optional paging.

add_filter( 'category_rewrite_rules', 'wpse8769_category_rewrite_rules' );
function wpse8769_category_rewrite_rules( $category_rules )
    global $wp_rewrite;
    // This could be incorrect for fancy permastructs, only tested in simple situations
    $category_permastruct = str_replace( $wp_rewrite->rewritecode, $wp_rewrite->rewritereplace, $wp_rewrite->get_category_permastruct() );
    $category_permastruct = preg_replace( '|^/+|', '', $category_permastruct );

    $category_extra_rules = array(
        // Or split this up over different rewrite rules, if the regex is too complicated
        // Feeds are left as an exercise for the reader
        $category_permastruct . '/([0-9]{4})(/([0-9]{1,2}))?(/page/([0-9]+))?/?$' =>

    return $category_extra_rules + $category_rules;
