Todayish in History

Shows a list of links to posts from previous years on or near this date, 1 per year. Provides a function to use in a theme, as well as a widget

  1. Unzip the todayish_in_history.zip file to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress

If you want to use the widget:

  1. Place the Todayish In History in a sidebar using the WordPress Widgets tool in the Appearence menu
  2. Change the settings if desired

If you want to use Todayish In History in your theme:

  1. Place

    <?php todayish_in_history(); ?>

    in your template

  2. You can optionally set the following parameters

    • parameter (default,type) -- Description
    • limit (100,int) -- How many years of history to show
    • title (Todayish In History,string) -- The title displayed next to the dropdown
    • class (horizontal,css legal string) -- The class added to the outermost div for styling purposes
    • width (200px,valid css width) -- How wide should the dropdown be.
    • iswidget (FALSE,boolean) -- If TRUE adds class 'widgettitle' to h2 widget title
    • 'max_days_off' (int/365) The max number of days away from today's date to search
    • 'range' (bool/FALSE) Use the fixed range_start/range_stop fields?
    • 'range_start' (int/0) Start year in fixed range
    • 'range_stop (int/date('Y')) Stop year in fixed range

By default the dropdown drops directly down, and titles too wide for the drop-down are truncated. To change this behavior so that the dropped-down list is as wide as it needs to be, see the comment in todayish_in_history.css
