I have a blog where you can select to view post from a particular year and month. When you click on the date in the archive list the URL sends the variables over like this...

archive.php?month=March&year=2012

I'm just not sure how to display them on the results page?

The date is stored in the database in date format in the eventdate column.

I basically need a query that says...

Show posts from latestnews where the year and month match those in the eventdate column of the databse.

The month and year will arrive in $_GET.  This will create a date range that runs from the first of the month to the end of the month.  Then you just use that in your WHERE clause.

See: http://www.laprbass.com/RAY_temp_brighteyesdesign.php?month=March&year=2012
<?php // RAY_temp_brighteyesdesign.php
error_reporting(E_ALL);

date_default_timezone_set('America/Chicago');

$alpha = date('c', strtotime($_GET["month"] . ' 1, ' . $_GET["year"]));
$omega = date('c', strtotime($_GET["month"] . ' ' . date('t', strtotime($alpha)) . ', ' . $_GET["year"]));
$where = " WHERE eventdate BETWEEN '$alpha' AND '$omega' ";
var_dump($where);
