This plugin adds a function that prints a fuzzy date and time in french. For example, “22 octobre 2012 à 14:00” can get changed to “Il y a 3 heures”, or “Hier en début d’après-midi”, or “Il y a 2 mois”, etc.
It also provides hooks to automatically fuzzify comments dates and times, but it’s pretty rough at the moment.
This plugin is adapted from Splee’s Fuzzy DateTime.
I (mll) am not really a developer. Lots of things could be improved : * make this plugin really international, with a GUI to edit what’s hard-coded at the moment * make a GUI to set the options on wich dates must be fuzzified * …
So, if you feel like contributing to the development of this plugin, please let me know!
- Install and activate like any other plugin.
- Go to Settings > Fuzzy DateTime and edit the sentences as you will
- The comments dates and times are automatically changed. You may also use in your theme the function fuzzy_datetime(the_date).
My comments date and time are a bit garbled. How comes ?
Yes, the plugin replaces the dates for a fuzzy DateTime, and the time with nothing. So, if you had “Rédigé le 22 octobre 2012 à 14:00”, you’ll get instead “Rédigé le Il y a 3 heures à 14:00”.
You’ll have to edit your theme, or better, make a child theme to have something correct. If someone has a solution, I’ll gladly include it in a future version.
Très bonne initiative, je vous remercie. Un titre rédigé en français eût été encore mieux. Bonne continuation.
