Add link to Archive post code

I am creating a blog and need to have an 'Archive' section.

The year and months display ok using this code...

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

Open in new window



However, i'm not sure how to add a link. When you click on a month you need to redirect to archive.php and send $month over in the URL so the results page can display all posts from that month.

Any ideas where I add the link to the above code?

Maybe something like this?
<?php // UNTESTED CODE
foreach ($data as $year => $months) 
{
    echo $year.'<br>';
    
    foreach ($months as $month => $count) 
    {
        $mnth = date("F", mktime(0,0,0,$month,1,2000));
        $link 
        = '<a href="path/to/script.php?month='
        . $mnth
        . '">'
        . $mnth
        . '</a>'
        . "($count)"
        . '<br/>'
        . PHP_EOL
        ;
        
        echo $link;
    }
}

Thanks for the points!  That "vertical layout" for concatenated strings is something I learned from a SQL guru.  I've found that it makes the code very easy to read and get right the first time.  All the best, ~Ray
