This release adds an enhancement request that allows entry of early dates without leading zeros so you can enter
5-10-21 instead of
0005-10-21 if you wish. It also fixes the tdih_tab help screen text (on the Historic Events Admin screen) so that it correctly covers all the options for the shortcode.
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.
This release of This Day In History sees a complete overhaul of the administration screens. This fixes a pagination bug with WordPress 4.0, adds screen options so you can choose the number of rows to show and also hide columns you don’t want, adds a basic toolbar to the name field to make it easy to add formatting and links, a changed style to fit in with the new WordPress dashboard, the plugin options page has been redesigned and a link added to the plugin screen so it can be more easily found, oh and the widget code has been updated to the latest standard and the options screen tidied a little.
This is the first production release. It has two enhancements, Firstly you can customise the message that is displayed when there are no events (under Settings -> This Day In History) and secondly there is a new parameter for the shortcode (show-all) that you can use to show all the events that you have added. These enhancements are both user requests.
This is a bug fix release to fix an issue with the Admin Bar +New menu in the upcoming 3.6 release of WordPress.
