Advanced Dates

Description

Extending WordPress literary, documentary & archival potential, this plugin allows publishers to easily customize the publication year of posts & pages.

Installation

After installing and activating the plugin (https://codex.wordpress.org/Managing_Plugins), visit Settings > Advanced Dates. There, publishers can chose to either adjust dates site-wide or on a page-by-page and post-by-post basis. If a publisher choses the latter, s/hell be able to selectively (de)activate the plugin, customize the annual differential, and (un)freeze dates on each page/posts editing screen.

SH is very interested in the ways in which publishers use the Advanced Dates plugin. Please share ideas and usage notes in the comments section of the plugin URI: http://studiohyperset.com/wordpress-advanced-dates-plugin/4016

Also, the WordPress functions get_the_time and the_time work only on pages while get_the_date and the_date work only on posts. This is largely meaningless since developers can display the same date, time, and publication information using all four. Nevertheless, when developing a theme that builds on the Advanced Dates plugin, or trying to integrate the plugin into an existing theme, developers will want to keep these WordPress boundaries in mind.

Moreover, if a publisher or developer finds the plugin isnt working for a particular theme, its likely the result of improper usage of one or more of the four date-oriented WordPress functions referenced above. For the Advanced Date plugin to work, developers need to use the get_the_time and the_time functions on pages and the get_the_date and the_date functions on posts.
