Do they need to point to something? Like archives or something, basically, do they need to be linked?

Yeah just like when click Stories Archive in the modules/navigation block, how they show all the months in there... I need the block to link all the news stories to that month just like the stories archive module...

I suggest that you create your own block. Take the block-Old_Articles.php as your example from a block structure standpoint, but use the code from function select_month() within modules/Stories_Archive/index.php.

Alright this took me a bit but i got it coded to work... anyone else who needs this block heres the code for it... Thanks all for your replies.

Code:
<?php

if (stristr($_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME'], "block-Stories_Archive.php")) {
    Header("Location: ../index.php");
    die();
}

global $prefix, $user_prefix, $db, $module_name;
   
    $result = $db->sql_query("SELECT time from ".$prefix."_stories order by time DESC");
    $content = "<ul>";
    while($row = $db->sql_fetchrow($result)) {
   $time = $row['time'];
   ereg ("([0-9]{4})-([0-9]{1,2})-([0-9]{1,2}) ([0-9]{1,2}):([0-9]{1,2}):([0-9]{1,2})", $time, $getdate);
   if ($getdate[2] == "01") { $month = _JANUARY; } elseif ($getdate[2] == "02") { $month = _FEBRUARY; } elseif ($getdate[2] == "03") { $month = _MARCH; } elseif ($getdate[2] == "04") { $month = _APRIL; } elseif ($getdate[2] == "05") { $month = _MAY; } elseif ($getdate[2] == "06") { $month = _JUNE; } elseif ($getdate[2] == "07") { $month = _JULY; } elseif ($getdate[2] == "08") { $month = _AUGUST; } elseif ($getdate[2] == "09") { $month = _SEPTEMBER; } elseif ($getdate[2] == "10") { $month = _OCTOBER; } elseif ($getdate[2] == "11") { $month = _NOVEMBER; } elseif ($getdate[2] == "12") { $month = _DECEMBER; }
   if ($month != $thismonth) {
       $year = $getdate[1];
       $content .= "<li><a href=\"modules.php?name=$module_name&amp;sa=show_month&amp;year=$year&amp;month=$getdate[2]&amp;month_l=$month\">$month, $year</a>";
       $thismonth = $month;
   }
    }
    $content .= "</ul>"
   ."<br><center>"
   ."[ <a href=\"modules.php?name=$module_name&amp;sa=show_all\">Show All</a> ]</center>";

?>

Most excellent!

For those who are using the 3.x patches from Chatserv, you would want to replace this:

Code:


if (stristr($_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME'], "block-Stories_Archive.php")) {
    Header("Location: ../index.php");
    die();
}


with this:

Code:


if ( !defined('BLOCK_FILE') ) {
   Header('Location: ../index.php');
   die();
}
