Simply and quickly add the current date and or time to your wordpress posts or pages using a shortcode Date widget also included
Simply and quickly add the current date and or time to your wordpress posts by using a simple shortcode in the text of your page or post. Simply use the short code [todaysdate] in your text and when the post or page is displayed, [todaysdate] will be replaced by the current date and/or time that you defined on the settings screen.
You can also override the default format by including the format string in the shortcode.
For example, if you placed the following text in your post and your format string was set to l, F jS Y -> Thank you for visiting my site today [todaysdate].
The date would be displayed as -> Thank you for visiting my site today Wednesday, April 23rd 2014.
