Bangla Date (Bongabdo)

Convert English Dates to Bangla Dates, based on Dr. Muhammed Shahidullah's Bangla calendar approved by People's Republic of Bangladesh. Plugin autodet

Why does the plugin show date in latin alphabet in my blog?

The plugin is programmed to detect the current language of the blog, and only if the current language is bn_BD, bn_IN or any bn_XX, (i. e. Bengali), the date will be shown with Bengali alphabets, otherwise, the date will be shown in Latin alphabet. Alternatively, in Version 2.0, you can edit the line 30 of bongabdo.php, and set the value of $beng_date_options['use bangla'] to 1

To set language of your blog, edit the wp-config.php file. Add the following lines there: define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8'); define('WPLANG', 'bn_BD');

How do I insert current date somewhere?

Place <?php bongabdo(); ?> where you want the Bangla Date to appear.

How do I show Bangla Unicode date?

To show Bangla Unicode date, the current language of blog must be Bangla (bn_BD) or (bn_IN), (See above);

Can it be used with multilingual sites?

Yes, partially. I'm using it with qTranslate. (http://www.sajidmc.net) It outputs date in English if the current language is not Bangla. On later versions, I'll release a full gettext supported plugin.

Does this calendar support Indian calendar?
