WordPress Plugin: History Collection

History Collection at WordPress.org

ionadas local LLC has released its first software development: a plugin for WordPress. History Collection allows you to create a “Today in History” section on your WordPress site, inserted either through a shortcode or a sidebar widget.

See the “On this day…” section of the Wikipedia homepage for an example of the sort of thing you can do (although this does not use our technology).

For an example using this technology, check out the Today in Texas Longhorn History page on my personal blog.

This is just a first revision of the software, so considerable functionality will be added. Most notably, a search system is needed for editing. In the example above, we currently have over 1,000 entries, and I know there are some duplicates.

But what would you like to see added to the plugin? Let me know, or feel free to ask any questions you might have, in the comments below.

Revision History

Fixed a bug that added a slash to Titles that had an apostrophe, and added an import/export system.

Bug fix of an error in the shortcode display code.

This is the first public release.
