Generate 'This Day in History' by way of shortcode. Includes a generator for creating appropriate shortcode.
Hiztory is a highly configurable plugin that generates shortcode that'll permit you to display 'this day in history' information on a WordPress page, post or sidebar.
Hiztory is a 'proof of concept' plugin that'll be built upon the needs of those that need it. The initial purpose was to provide 'This Day in Aviation History' for the Flight.org website and readers since no other tool was available for such information.
At the moment, we permit up to a maximum of 15 results to be rendered on your website in one query. The Hiztory API applies rate limiting so results are cached locally for one hour. Each new request generates new and random results.
