Support » Plugins » Plugin: This week last year

  • I’ve written a little plugin (my first) that generates a list of posts from your blog posted during a window of time a specified period in the past. On my blog for my baby boy I use it to create a “This week last year” block on the sidebar.

    The plugin is here. Feedback and feature requests welcomed.

  • Sounds cool 🙂 To bad my log isn’t that old 😛
    Is the plugin WP1.5/strayhorn compatible ?

    Tried it just now. It worked! 😀 I’m using wp1.5, too. I plunked it in my sidebar, click on my name to see it.

    Feature request: what about “this week 2 years ago” and further? I have 5-6 years worth of writing I just imported. Heh.
    Also, could it be modified to show either this day last year, or the neaerst posted day from last or previous years?

    Maybe there’s a plugin that does that already. But this was cool, an it worked, and was fast to do.

    Excellent plugin…

    Perhaps add a call to not show drafts…

    andrea_r:

    You can do two years ago: you just need to put the number of days ago you want to start and end at as parameters… so

    <?php cg_wayback(733,726); ?>

    will do all posts between 726 and 733 days ago (a one week slot two years ago).

    I’ll think about the ‘this day in previous years’ idea, might be a different plugin :).

    Hey – how do you do the bars on your blog, with the date on the far right, dividing entries up by day? That’s cool, I’d like to steal it.

    mcmike:

    Yes, it’s 1.5 compatible. I don’t know if it works with older versions, I only have 1.5 (new WordPress user, here). And see the above answer – you can use it for a shorter time ago if you prefer…

    piginzen:

    Good idea. I’ll look into it.

    Good idea. I’ll look into it. I see you have an ‘on this day’ thing on your blog – can you point me to the relevant plugin or code?

    There was an upgrade of this for WP 1.5, but I tried installing it and it stopped working. So I still use this perhaps outdated version, but it works fine so far…
