Support » Plugin: IG Posts Carousel » Translate post date?

    Hi from Germany,

    I was looking for an easy to use post carousel solution and stumbled over your nice plugin. Works like a charm so far. But as usual, I ran into an issue: I am unable to translate the date in the ig-posts-carousel shortcode.

    I have a bit of php knowledge, so I handeled it this way (using wpml):

     <?php
    			if(ICL_LANGUAGE_CODE == 'en'){
    				$format = get_the_date('F j, Y');
    			} else if(ICL_LANGUAGE_CODE == 'es'){
    				$format = get_the_date('j F, Y');
    			} else if(ICL_LANGUAGE_CODE == 'de'){
    				$format = get_the_date('j. F Y');
    			} else {
    				$format = get_the_date();
    			}
    			?>	

    and then replace <span class="date"><?php echo get_the_date(); ?></span> with <span class="date"><?php echo $format; ?></span>

    Works, but will be gone after your next update. Maybe you could incorporate a filter for that situation, like this: <span class="date"><?php echo apply_filters('ig-posts-carousel-date',get_the_date()); ?></span>

    Others than that: Nice and easy, not as bloated as many other post carousels.
