Years Since

Description

Keep the date related texts current in your posts and allow your content to age well seemlessly. Texts like “I have worked for x years in web dev” in articles are outdated within a year. This plugin keeps them upto date automatically.

Usage

For example, on an “About” page text, you might have something like:

In classic Editor:

We’ve worked remotely for [years-since y=2012], which has allowed the team to spend more time traveling and spending time with family.
Or, if you wanted to update a time span on a particular anniversary, you could do something like:
I’m [years-since y=1990 m=5 d=16] old.“

In Block Editor/Gutenberg:
Wrap the old text with new shortcode [years-since-gb] like:
[years-since-gb]I’m [years-since y=1990 m=5 d=16] old.[/years-since-gb]“.

This will still work even if you revert back to the Classic Editor seamlessly.

FAQ

Does it work with Gutenberg?

Yes. If you have been using this plugin previously, the new editor brings breaking changes.
You can manage that well. Wrap the old text with new shortcode [years-since-gb] like:

[years-since-gb]I'm [years-since y=1990 m=5 d=16] old.[/years-since-gb]``

Does it work with ClassicPress?

Yes. This will still work even if you revert back to the Classic Editor seamlessly.

A well-thought-out solution, sleek and elegantly coded. I love the functionality that allows for days, months and weeks instead of 0 years when time passed is less than a year. Congratulations @laurencebahiirwa and a big thank you!
