It's not a "new" issue, but I'd like to implement a year + month dropdown selector to navigate a standard calendar view's display, as this particular calendar shows historical entries spanning many years, all of which need to be directly accessible.
I understand it's possible to specify an argument via URL to control the calendar view's current display through its contextual filter. However, I don't know how to supply this argument via a dropdown, either in the block itself or another (similar to an exposed filter), in a way that would function properly in all cases.
Working without a solution, I created my own views style plugin, added an exposed filter, and am now going to look for a way to display the easily filtered-by-month results in a custom calendar implementation through my code.
Hopefully there's a way to make use of the existing calendar module via "inspired" filtering, instead of my custom plugin route?
Any guidance would be appreciated.
