Great Plugin
By , for WP 4.0.1

Good plug in for showing anniversary dates. There are ways that It could been improved. If the plugin used the WordPress post editor it would allow images - and possibly featured images that might be handy. In the admin screed some ability to sort and filter by months and days would be an advantage. Ability to enter BCE dates might be good. Possibly a display of the number years anniversary might be good as well.

It works towards something I have been wanting for some time. Thanks for your efforts.

Thanks for creating this plugin.

Thanks for creating this plugin ... and one question - how to us some events in next year?

Works Perfectly
By , for WP 4.0

Does exactly what I want it to. I used a widget shortcode creator plugin so now it has its own page. The only thing I would like to see is the categories that I create to be formatted differently than the events that I place in them. But other than that, it works perfect for what I need it for.

Works Great

Super plugin.
Thank you.
My only suggestion would be to figure out how to have the option of having the events display chronologically, by MM-DD.
I have events that span many years, and it would be nice to see them in the order in which they will post to the widget.

Simple and effective

I want to display the birth dates of famous British men and women on the appropriate day; this plugin does that effectively. I'd agree with the review stating importing data would be ideal. I'd also like to display the day and month next to the Widget title.

Great plugin!

It works very good and does what it is supposed to do.

There would be a lot of thing to make it better, but it wouldn't be as simple as it is.

I would like to have different locations so no manual modification is needed.

Thanks againg for your work!

Meh

Seems like a simple and straightforward plugin for what should be a simple and straightforward task, but the implementation is actually way too simple to be broadly useful!

Can't display just one factoid per day, but forced to list at least ten at a time -- and can't accommodate dates in antiquity: i.e., B.C.!!!

missing features

This is of little use if you don't connect events with posts. Why not showing posts from a specific posts category, instead of adding history events?

This Day in History
By , for WP 3.5.1

A plugin I have been looking for and works. I would like to see one thing added, if at all possible. I would like for a visitor to be able to enter any date to see all events for that date.

Thanks for such a useful plugin.

Simple and A Good Fit For My Needs

Thanks for creating this plugin.

I was looking for a plugin that would allow me to display the birthdays of ancestors in a widget on my family history site's footer. While there are more elaborate plugins This Day In History does most of what I want without the weight and complexity of the other options.

The one thing I would add is that it would be ideal to be able to import/export using CSV files. When migrating information from one site to another or adding a large number of dates this would be a huge time saver. For example, I have over 400 birthdays I would like to enter. It is going to take ages to add them one at a time.
