I actually wanted to start working on something that should eventually  
look something like this:

Here it should be indicated if an entry has been made in a month, and  
the respective link should get you to all the entries of the month.  
But I have still some more design problems, as the respective monthly  
pages unfortunately have to be triggered manually. :-(
Nevertheless I wanted to give it  try and (mis?)use blogcal to get the  
basic functionality in place.

As I see it, you called MakePageName and than compared if the  
resulting pagename exists calling "PageExists($pname)" in line 171. So  
the question would rather be if PageExists accepts wildcards. Is there  
actually a documentation for the function calls?

Thanks a lot for your reply.
