    You are likely going to need to do it with a render controller and custom model.

    To get you started :


    public class NewsListingModel : IPublishedContent
        public IEnumerable<string> Categories { get; set;  }
        public IEnumerable<YearArchive> Years { get; set; }
        public class YearArchive
            public int Year { get; set; }
            public IEnumerable<int> Months { get; set; }


    public class NewsListingController : RenderMvcController
        public ActionResult NewsListing(BlogListingModel model)
            model.Years = model.Content.Children.Select(x => x.CreateDate).GroupBy(d => d.Year).Select(y => y.FirstOrDefault()).Select(y =>
                new NewsListingModel.YearArchive
                    Year = y.Year,
                    Months = model.Content.Children.Where(
                    x => x.CreateDate.Year == y.Year).Select(
                        x => x.CreateDate.Month
                        ).GroupBy(mg => mg).Select(m=>m.FirstOrDefault())
            return CurrentTemplate(model);

    You could then then making an archive content type which takes a int month and int year parameter to a controller to filter the children of the node you are after?

    Or you could extend the model further so it all happens on the same page?
