Hebrew Date

This plugin allows WordPress to easily show Hebrew dates instead of (or in addition to) the standard Gregorian dates. No theme changes are required.

2.1.1

  • Integration with github. No functional changes.

2.1.0

  • Support WP 3.2's TwentyEleven with its HTML comment escaping

2.0.3

  • Fix for anyone using PHP < 5.3.0 and a date containing a suffix (3rd, 5th, etc instead of 3, 5).

2.0.2

  • Remove superflous single quote after the year
  • Switch ' and " to &1523; and ״ [proper unicode]. Thanks to KosherJava for the tip

2.0.1

  • Fixed a bug for English (both Ashkenazim and Sefardic) transliterations not appearing (introduced in 2.0.0)
  • Added the option to remove the quotes from the Hebrew dates (requested by http://www.amotherinisrael.com/)

2.0.0

  • Complete rewrite of the date identification; much more reliable
  • Code actually looks slightly sane now
  • New get_the_hebrew_date() and the_hebrew_date() APIs, which can be used in any theme. The interception of the other calls, while much more robust now, still is not the ideal.

1.0.4

  • Support for both the_date() and get_the_date() (required for WordPress 3.0's 2010 theme)

1.0.3

  • Enhanced currentHebrewDate API (see the help on the config screen, or the discussion proposals here)
  • Start of some decent documentation
  • Proper URL

1.0.2

  • Code no longer breaks things! [fix for the_time()]

1.0.1

  • Don't ask where 1.0.0 is. Just don't.
  • Database config (instead of coded in the file)
  • Configuration screen shows when an update was performed
  • Option of showing Hebrew (or transliterated) only, Gregorian - Hebrew, or Hebrew - Gregorian
  • Lots of code cleanup.
  • Easier to add languages (I'd like to add an academic spelling as well)
  • Support for full names (Marcheshvan, Menachem Av)
  • XHTML 1.1 compliant! (span rtl)
  • Hebrew (default) or Transliterated (Latin character set) characters
  • Transliteration according Ashkenazi (default) or Sefardi pronunciation
  • Sunset correction enabled or disabled (default) by Latitude / Longitude
  • Based on an idea I "borrowed" from Jacob Fresco, I've added the ability to insert the current Hebrew Date (with sunset correction!) anywhere in a theme. Simply add <?php if (function_exists('hebrewDateCurrent')) { hebrewDateCurrent();} ?> to a theme.
