Show archive DESC from date and add link

I have an archive function working on my Blog using the following code...
mysql_select_db($database_acsinfo, $acsinfo);
 $query_archive = "SELECT YEAR(`eventdate`) AS 'year', MONTH(`eventdate`) AS 'month', COUNT(`id`) AS 'count'  FROM `latestnews` GROUP BY YEAR(`eventdate`), MONTH(`eventdate`) DESC
";
$result = mysql_query($query_archive, $acsinfo) or die(mysql_error());



$data = array();
while($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($result)) {
if( intval($row['count']) >0) $data[$row['year']][$row['month']] = $row['count'];

}

Open in new window



 <?php foreach ($data as $year => $months) {
    echo $year.'';
    foreach ($months as $month => $count) {
            echo date("F", mktime(0,0,0,$month,1,2000)).'('.$count.')<br>';
    }
} ?>

Open in new window


How can I get the dates to show the other way round? ie 2012 first.

Also how would add a link? I need to send a link to the detail page which will show posts from that year & month.

Replace your archive query with this one:
SELECT YEAR(`eventdate`) AS 'year', MONTH(`eventdate`) AS 'month', COUNT(`id`) AS 'count'  FROM `latestnews` GROUP BY YEAR(`eventdate`), MONTH(`eventdate`) ORDER BY YEAR('eventdate') DESC, MONTH('eventdate') DESC

That's great, thanks for that.

Where would I add a link around the results so you click on  'July (1)' for example, it takes you a page with the month in the URL to display posts from that month?

I have tried...

           
        <a href="searchrecent.php?month=<?php echo $month ?>" class="sidemenu"> <?php foreach ($data as $year => $months) {
    echo $year.'';
    foreach ($months as $month => $count) {
            echo date("F", mktime(0,0,0,$month,1,2000)).'('.$count.')<br>';
    }
} ?></a>
