Tempus Fugit Version 1.0 for WordPress Released

Tempus Fugit, my latest plugin, has been released. It is a split of several time based WordPress enhancements from other projects, something I intend to continue to iterate on.

  • The On This Day Archive pages, available at /onthisday and /onthisday/03/09
  • The On This Day Widget
  • All Date Based Archives now display in order from oldest to newest instead of vice-versa. If you are revisiting a day, it makes sense to do it in order.
  • Ordinal Days or Day of the Year functionality. Not only will /2021/03/09 work, but 2021/068 . You can also make this your permalink if you want.
  • It also adds the top level archives of:
    • /updated to show posts in order of last modified
    • /oldest to show posts in the order from old to new
    • /random to show posts in a random order.

All of these functions use functionality built into WordPress that isn’t normally public. I look forward to adding additional ways to enhance experiencing your website in different ways….because what your website always needs, as the tagline said, is more time.
