If your blog posts from the same time of year are relavant each and every
year, then this is the plugin for you. Todayish In History shows a list of
links to blog posts from your blog which were posted in previous years at
about the same date as today.
The plugin is named Todayish because if there isn’t a blog post from today’s
date in previous years it will use the blog post which is the least
number of days away from todays date.
Todayish in History provides a function for use in themes as well as a
widget for use in your sidebar.
- What’s a use case for this thing?
I am entering my 3rd year of garden blogging. Every year the same types of things
are applicable in the same season of the year. Other seasonal topics like
hunting, fishing, sports, etc. may also find this sort of thing useful.
Added option to use fixed date range. Added option to limit proximity to
current date — eg. Only show posts from previous years within 30 days of
Fix to use sidebar’s title size instead of hard coded h2. Added !important to
commented out CSS that enabled full text links to appear.
