Thanks again for posting a suggestion, I really appreciate it.
However, this doesn't answer my initial problem. I need it to output just archive links to specific months of a year, not individual posts. Here's an illustrated example:
(say I have separate unordered lists for each year, bold text are the archive links)
Again, <?php wp_get_archives('type=monthly'); ?> works except it doesn't allow me any way to distinguish what year to use. It will literally spit out 40 months long going back over 3 years for each of my unordered lists. I'm looking for a function that will only output monthly archive links for a specific year that I can place under each of my lists.
<ul>...archive function here...</ul>
I hope this makes more sense. Thanks again.
