Simple and effective
By , for WP 3.9.1

I want to display the birth dates of famous British men and women on the appropriate day; this plugin does that effectively. I'd agree with the review stating importing data would be ideal. I'd also like to display the day and month next to the Widget title.

Great plugin!
By , for WP 3.6

It works very good and does what it is supposed to do.

There would be a lot of thing to make it better, but it wouldn't be as simple as it is.

I would like to have different locations so no manual modification is needed.

Thanks againg for your work!

Meh
By , for WP 3.8.1

Seems like a simple and straightforward plugin for what should be a simple and straightforward task, but the implementation is actually way too simple to be broadly useful!

Can't display just one factoid per day, but forced to list at least ten at a time -- and can't accommodate dates in antiquity: i.e., B.C.!!!

missing features

This is of little use if you don't connect events with posts. Why not showing posts from a specific posts category, instead of adding history events?

This Day in History
By , for WP 3.5.1

A plugin I have been looking for and works. I would like to see one thing added, if at all possible. I would like for a visitor to be able to enter any date to see all events for that date.

Thanks for such a useful plugin.

Simple and A Good Fit For My Needs
By , for WP 3.5

Thanks for creating this plugin.

I was looking for a plugin that would allow me to display the birthdays of ancestors in a widget on my family history site's footer. While there are more elaborate plugins This Day In History does most of what I want without the weight and complexity of the other options.

The one thing I would add is that it would be ideal to be able to import/export using CSV files. When migrating information from one site to another or adding a large number of dates this would be a huge time saver. For example, I have over 400 birthdays I would like to enter. It is going to take ages to add them one at a time.
