The configuration you'll need to use are -

  1. Choose a template from "Inherit design from another template" option.
  2. Under "Where does this template apply" select the "Archive" in the drop-down and check the "All archives" box.
  3. Hit Save or Publish and begin editing with Oxygen.

Once you have created your archive template, don't forget to go to Pages > Add New > call this page blog or archives, and under "Render page using template" select the "Archives" template. You're done!

Note: If you have created other archives template in Oxygen and want to make this your main template, be sure to add a template priority value.
