I've followed tutorial 2 and created a news page. Works great for my site but I have one additional requirement.

Hopefully someone will have done this before and can give me an example.

I need to create a sidebar which will show all the news items grouped under year and month.

For example:

News Article 4
News Article 3

News Article 2
News Article 1

Have someone done this before and how difficult would it be to do?

I solved this by using the blog module. Customized it slightly to do everything my news section did and now it works perfectly.

Hi Brig,

I try to customize the blog as you suggest, but it don't work.
Could you explain how you customize the blog module?
Thank you.

Hi Fede

My solution wasn't exactly like I described as I wanted it in my OP. When thinking it through afterwards having all the news entries in the sidebar wasn't very practical as I have a whole load of them.

You can see how my blog section works at the moment on here:

As you can see it's almost as it is out of the box. I can't remember exactly what changes I did but if you need I can go into the code and have a look for you.
