Views Custom Field module, I can even use PHP to make views even more customizable. Getting that same level of familiarity with Drupal 7 views will be a challenge, but it's a fun challenge.
First views project in D7: Creating a monthly archive block for my
right column. A pre-packaged version ships with the views module, but
creating my own served as a crash course for Drupal 7 views. I started
from the D6 tutorial at Chris Shattuck's blog, and referred to the pre-packaged version to fill in the gaps.
The goal of this tutorial is to create a block you can stick in a
side column that displays linked months with a post count, and a page
for each month so your visitors have somewhere to go when they click the
linked months. Without further ado, here you go.
