[resolved] Display monthly archives in numbers (01.08.2013) (2 posts)

    Hello WordPress community,

    Is there a way to get the wp_get_archives tag to display the monthly archives in numericals? Much like you can format the_time and make it use numbers instead of the full written out date, I would like to have numbers for my monthly archives:
    01.2009
    02.2009
    03.2009

    instead of

    january 2009
    february 2009
    march 2009

    Is there a way to do this? I have browsed the forum extensively but have not found any good answer. Tried changing the general-template.php file but that did not help. Also did not find any plugin that could help me with this issue.

    Any ideas on this?

    I solved this problem by creating a list of posts using the get_posts tag and displaying only the_date from the posts. A little work around and not ideal, but it did the trick!

    <ul>
    <?php
    $IDOutsideLoop = $post->ID;
    global $post;
    $args = array('numberposts' => 3 );
    $myposts = get_posts( $args );
    foreach( $myposts as $post ) :	setup_postdata($post); ?>
    	<li <?php if(is_single() && $IDOutsideLoop == $post->ID) {echo " class=\"current\"";}?>><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_date('d.m.Y'); ?></a></li>
    <?php endforeach; ?>
    </ul>
