This Day In History 2.0 Released

So the first thing you’ll notice is that we jumped directly to version 2.0.  That’s because this release has some major changes.  There have been several bug fixes as well as the enhancements to the shortcodes (which have now been split into two), the widget which can now display events for yesterday or tomorrow instead of today) and the administration screen where dates can now be sorted in different ways.  You can also enter dates without a year by using 0000 as the year.

NB:  This version requires php 5.3.0 or higher due to the use of a newer date function.

Sub Categories Widget 1.4 Released

This release implements a enhancement request to have the post define the parent category for the sub-category list.  The first category of the post (the first post is used if more than one are displayed, for example on an archive page) as a parent category.  If this category has no sub-categories then the widget is not displayed at all.

You’ll also notice that the exclude categories option is now a multi-selection list (use ctrl click to select more than  one category).

The release also improved sanitation and validation of widget input.
