Changelog

0.5

  • You can now choose to display timestamps in the visitor’s own timezone.
  • It now registers as a “real” widget meaning you won’t need to add any PHP code to the template. The old code still works for backwards-compatibility and for templates without widget support.
  • Match links open in a new tab/window (target=”_blank”).
  • Added a per-match override setting for home/away match.
  • Modified the area the match link covers slightly to make it less ambiguous.

0.4

  • Date and time format can now be changed in the settings.

0.3

  • First public release.
  • Code clean-up.
  • Database-related match link fix.
  • Stylesheet overhaul.
