There is small problem with your plugin – it depends on strftime function, which formats date according to locale settings. For example, on my Polish textpattern installation, it produces url which doesn’t work.

I’m using $this->day = date(‘M_j’, strtotime($this->date)); instead, and now it works just fine.

Thanks for a great plugin, anyway!


My bad, it should be ‘F_j’, not ‘M_j’.

Thanks Neratin. I’ll post an update soon.

If you find anymore issues, please post them in the forum thread – I don’t visit often.
