    I was trying to think of ideas for my next plugin, and I thought I would see if there were any requests. 🙂

    Preferably something that would not require several thousand lines of code, as I do have other things I am working on 😉

    The first idea that I like, I will do.

    Creating an On This Date plugin that works with version 2.0 would be appreciated.

    I’d like a plugin that makes black coffee.

    Ok, I am through. Here it is:

    http://www.dagondesign.com/files/dd-this-day.txt

    This plugin has an options page in the admin panel. Here are the options you can set:

    Max posts to show – 0 for unlimited.

    Sorting – Newest or oldest first.

    Header text – Is displayed before the posts.

    Show other posts from today – If enabled, this will include other posts that were on this exact same day (as the post being viewed). If disabled, it will only show previous year’s posts.

    Show the year – If enabled, the year will be shown after each post in the list.

    Let me know how it works for you, and if anything needs to be added 🙂

    (re)Make the WP2PDF Plugin! (http://wp2pdf.sourceforge.net/) It’s so useful but broken on WP2x 🙁

    Thanks. That’s very good.

    One question . . . this only shows when the permalink is used. Is there a way to display this for the posts when viewed on the homepage?

    Just curious . . .

    Another thing I noticed is that if I have posted on 20 March for three years, 2006, 2005, and 2004, on the posted dated 3/20/06 it will show 3/20/05 and 3/20/04.

    On the 3/20/05 post, it will show 3/20/04.

    On the 3/20/04 post, no others are shown.

    Shouldn’t all three posts show the other two?

    Sure,

    In the ddtd_generate function,

    Change this line:

    if (is_single()) {

    to this:

    if (is_single() || is_home()) {

    There are several other functions listed here, for other types of pages, etc..

    Ah yes..

    Change this line:

    $this_year_check = " AND DATE_FORMAT(post_date, '%Y') < {$curr_year} ";

    to this:

    $this_year_check = " AND DATE_FORMAT(post_date, '%Y') != {$curr_year} ";

    I guess I got completely ignored. Thanx anyway.

    leMaxim.. since I said I would make the first plugin requested that would not be several thousands line long, and:

    1) you were the second person to ask.

    2) the plugin you mentioned is not only huge, but has several dozen files it uses. In other words, it would not be a trivial matter 🙂

    Oh, sorry, I didn’t notice point 1). But it was worth trying! Any suggestions on who could help or alternatives?

    I had not even heard of a plugin to convert WP pages to PDF.. but I will keep it in mind as I look around 🙂
