This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.


This plugin was inspired by “On this day” in Wikipedia’s home page. It can list posts which have same calendar date as today or as specific post.

It can automatically append “On This Day” list after post content. You can use it as Widget, or just call OTDList() where you need to show OTD list.
