Hebrew Date 1.0.0 Released

‍‍י״ב מרחשון תשס״ז - Thursday, November 2nd, 2006

As you may have seen earlier, I'd picked up development of the Hebrew Date plugin from KosherJava. Today, I'm officially releasing version 1.0.0. Much of the logic is rewritten, but most of the credit goes to KosherJava!

To install, download the plugin (from here),activate, and enjoy!

There are lots of fun config options under the options tab. Specifically, in order to use the sunset correction (evening dates will have the correct Hebrew date), you need to provide a latitude and longitude.

Please note that this code has only been tested on WP 2.0+. It may work on 1.5, but I'm not sure.

Even more changes to Hebrew Dates!

‍‍א׳ מרחשון תשס״ז - Monday, October 23rd, 2006

Latest changes:

  • Lots of code cleanup.
  • Easier to add languages (I'd like to add an academic spelling as well)
  • Support for full names (Marcheshvan, Menachem Av)
  • XHTML 1.1 compliant! (span rtl)

More Hebrew Dates Updates

‍‍א׳ מרחשון תשס״ז - Monday, October 23rd, 2006

I've added a few more things to the Hebrew Dates plugin patches I mentioned earlier.

WordPress and Hebrew Dates

‍‍ל׳ תשרי תשס״ז - Sunday, October 22nd, 2006

I've modified the Hebrew Dates plugin from KosherJava slightly, so that all configuration data is now stored in the database (not hard coded into the PHP file). Additionally, it can now compute the dates of posts or comments based on local sunset time. That way, comments made in the evening will be assigned the the proper Hebrew date!
