    Just looking for some programming/PHP help.. Im trying to setup a photoblog site with this as the homepage;

    The idea is that it integrates with a weblog platform such as Wordpress and clicking on the dates with a post link off to the appropriate permalink if there.

    If anyone could point me in the right direction that would be great I can have managed to style it successfuly using wordpress theme style.css. Just having trouble making a full year calendar using the get_calendar function. Is this the best way to go about it? My PHP programming is not great but i can use HTmL/CSS well.

    Is wordpress the best way to go for this? Is there another way to do it? Any advice ideas would be much appreciated.

    Unfortunately, I can't help you, but I can tell you that you'd probably get a better response in Wordpress Support Forums. Good luck! :)

    Yeah thanks anyway.. I have been looked thru the forums Im thinking I might go about it a different way.

    I'm thinking a if else statement to determine if the corresponding date has and actual post and then it becomes a link and which goes to the relevant permalink in a new window.

    How do i query the wordpress database to determine if it has a post and how would i structure my if else statement. Sorry im from more of a animation actionscript background my php skills are very rusty.

    This is what I'm working from at the moment


    Any one have any ideas?

    Wordpress has built-in support to generate a calendar grid with links to posts on any particular day. There is a calendar widget that you can drop in your sidebar too.
    <?php get_calendar(); ?>
    is the relevant wordpress command.
