Auto Calendar and MySQL date matching

Recommended Posts

I just want either confirmation that I'm on the right track or a violent strike-down.

I have a blog up and working and I'm adding functionality.  Right now I have a calendar on it which will be the search utility.  My idea to make this work is to read the dates of posts in the DB into an array, and then use a for loop while printing out the days in the calendar to check for matches in dates with the post dates.  However, this seems a bit inefficient, almost like the bulldozer method of doing it, especially since I have the dates of the calendar written by two different loops (one for the first row, the other for the remaining days).  Is this the best way to go about it?
