jonradio Perpetual Calendar

Allows Site Visitors to display the Day of Week for any Date they enter, via Shortcode or PHP Function.

Will this plugin work with the Theme(s) that I am using?

To date, we have not received any reports of Themes where this plugin does not work properly. A lot of work may be required in the Date Form Input Layout section of the plugin's Settings (WordPress Admin panels) to find the layout that works best for any specific Theme.

Why doesn't the plugin's Setting for Height of New Line (in Pixels) work?

This can be very confusing. This measurement is from the bottom of the new line that begins with the Date Field where Height and "New Line Before?" are selected. Any value smaller than the minimum vertical space required to display the new line is ignored. A value of 50 is a good starting point.

What is a Perpetual Calendar?

The term Perpetual Calendar normally refers to the display of a calendar of any week or month across a broad range of years. However, it is almost always used to determine the day of the week for a given date, which is what this plugin does.

Is the plugin available in my language and/or date format?

The format of the Date can be changed in the Settings for the plugin.

At present, this plugin is only available in English and Spanish. Anyone interested in providing translation files and localization information for this plugin into any other language and culture is strongly encouraged to visit this page for more information: http://jonradio.com/plugins

Can I eliminate the reference to years as A.D., as my site visitors find it confusing?

Yes, see the Plugin's Settings page in the WordPress Admin panels. There you can choose "Do not allow Dates more then 2000 Years in the Past" to eliminate "A.D." before or after Years.

Can I change Year references from A.D./B.C. to CE/BCE?

Yes, see the Plugin's Settings page in the WordPress Admin panels. There you can choose "Current and Future Dates as CE, Ancient Dates as BCE".

Can I use the jr_weekday php function to validate a date?

Yes, by checking the first three characters of the returned value for "Err". If there is enough interest, we will create a new plugin with a jr_validate_date function. Please let us know, including your ideas on how you would like it to work, and how you would use this function. Note that php has a similar date validation function, but it supports a different range of dates, so please let us know what range of dates you are interested in.

In a WordPress Network (Multisite) installation, how do I force Perpetual Calendar on only some sites?

Do not Network Activate this plugin. Instead, Activate it on each site individually, using the Admin panel for each site, not the Network Admin panel.

How can I get just the day of the week, without all the other information?

If there is enough interest, we will add that to a future version. Please let us know, including your ideas on how you would like it to work, and how you would use this feature.
