ISO: On This Day (4 posts)

    I would find it useful to have a plugin that add a line at the bottom of a post that provides links to other posts that were made on the same day in previous years. This would allow one to see what was being blogged about the previous year(s).

    I envision something like:

    See what we blogged about on this date in 2005, 2004, 2003

    If no posts were made on a particular day, no link would be provide:

    See what we blogged about on this date in 2005

    I have no idea how to even begin creating such a thing.

    Is this doable? Anyone capable of creating something like this?

    All the best

    Well, no way am I able to do this, but tell you what: I think this would be a really cool thing....

    Old plugin, don't know if it works with 2.0:


    Another similar one:


    (So, this search thing?)

    In case anyone else is watching this post, I have created a plugin that does the job.

    "After every post, this plugin will list other posts from the same day in different years. Based off the original OnThisDay hack, this plugin works on WordPress 2.x (and possibly 1.5.x - but it has not been tested yet). Like most of my plugins, it has it’s own options page in the admin panel, where you can change the number of posts to show, the sort order, the header text, and a few other things."
