WordPress Ideas?

I’m still learning the various quirks of WordPress and would appreciate some help/advice from those with more experience.

Can anyone recommend a good archive utility that allows for easy navigation without taking up the whole sidebar? I’m envisioning something with a drop down menu that lets you select the month and/or another drop down menu that lets you select a post within a month. Since we blog nearly daily, there will be 25+ posts per month which will quickly start to add clutter.

I offer bonus points, some infamy, and a free beverage of your choice if I ever meet you in person if you can help us solve the hyperlink problem that only occurs in comments. Browse the comments and look for those with hyperlinks to get a visual of the problem (basically, wordpress embeds the URL correctly but prepends the domain name to the first word in the comment).

I’m not happy with the current Events Calendar plugin. It lets me add a description when I create the event (e.g. come visit us at the BSD booth on Saturday and pickup a PC-BSD DVD and some horns), but the description never shows up when you hover over the event. I’m envisioning a calendar that lets you scroll through a month, click on a day, and read more about the event details (e.g. what’s happening, the location, time, etc.).

I have some cool poll software and am looking for poll ideas of interest to you.

Any other plugins that you think would be useful to add onto this blog?

    Sorry for the spam, just testing to see if this was the same problem we had with our wordpress links.

    Thanks to all who are assisting with the weird hyperlink issue. I’m starting to think it may be browser specific (the browser that posts) as some comments are OK and others are not. I’ll test everyone’s suggestions as I find time–so I’m not ignoring or forgetting you if I haven’t responded to your suggestion yet :-)

    Please add the wp-touch plugin … so that the blog is better accessible from mobile devices :)|
