Issue status update for 
Post a follow up: 

 Project:      Drupal
 Version:      cvs
 Component:    archive.module
 Category:     feature requests
 Priority:     normal
 Assigned to:  Anonymous
 Reported by:  ahoeben
 Updated by:   adrian
 Status:       patch (code needs review)

The module in contrib needs very little love actually ..

The biggest thing is that there is no css in most themes for it,
meaning it can be hard to browse.
If we do use this module, it means we can remove most of the calendar
css out of drupal.css , and perhaps move it to modules/event/event.css
(provided event still uses it). 

The module is also a lot simpler =)

I made a couple of changes to archive.module to facilitate browsing the
archives by date.

* Opening an archive URL without specifying a day will display the full
month, eg www.example.com/archive/2004/07
* Selecting the 0th day of the month in the archive page drop down
selects the full month
* Using the previous/next raquo's in the calender block now uses full
month browsing

The attached patch is against 4.4.2 and is untested against CVS.

Blast from the past... Not sure what I did wrong to have my original
patch fail, but here is a new patch applying the same changes to Drupal

thanks for your patch, that's a feature I wanted :)

But please change day "0" to "ANY" or similar.

New patch. Changed '0' in day dropdown to 'All days'. You should be able
to change that string using a locale (but I have no experience with
locales in Drupal).

Also fixed a tiny bug that would cause the year dropdown to stop being
useful on jan 1st 2006.

I vote we completely ditch the legacy archive module and go with
codemonkeyx' module (it's in contrib as archive)
(example : http://codemonkeyx.net/archive)
