|=== Usayd's HijriDate Plugin v1.87 ===|


This plugin gives you the ability to display the Islamic (Hijri) date on your posts. This works by giving you the choice of displaying the Georgian, Hijri or both dates.

The structure of the output is completely customisable by the user from the admin panel.

|== Installation ==|

  1. Upload the unnhijridate.php file to your plugins directory (/wp-content/plugins/)
  2. Go to your WordPress administration area and activate the plugin.
  3. Go to your Options menu and select ‘HijriDate’
  4. Customise your dates.
  5. Substitute for where ever you wish the plugin to output the date and time. (Usually index.php)

|== Frequently Asked Questions ==|

Q. Why is nothing displayed when I put the ‘unn_hijridate()’ function in my template?

A. Did you go to the options page at least once after installing the plugin? If not, the default replacement strings haven’t been set up yet. Go to your dashboard, click options and select ‘HijriDate’. This should solve your problem.

|= I really like this plugin, can I donate to you? =|

|= Who contributed to this project? =|

I had the idea for the plugin and programmed the ‘bulk’ of the code, though that isn’t much 😉

This plugin uses a php script to calculate the Hijri date which was programmed by an unknown source. Once this source is known it will be given the appropriate recognition.
