Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] fha_time_diff: A Time Since generator

Have you thought about a modification so that it you can choose the single-unit format in which it’s returned, as in

181 days since…
368 days since…
54400 minutes until…

Rather than having it be solely dictated by what values are passed to it & echoing those back, add an optional layer that allows the user to request in what single unit to get back?

Also… I just discovered that while wraptag was built in, it wasn’t actually implemented. Looks like you forgot to concatenate the strings at the end of the function.

Version 0.23 (see the top post for an URL)

  • The wraptag="" and class="" argument now do work. (Thanks for that, compooter.)

I’d be interested in this function as well.

OK guys, I will attempt to work this in, but probably no sooner than September. Got to get out of town.

No rush, just blue-skying ;-)

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] fha_time_diff: A Time Since generator

Can somebody tell me what I would have to change in the plugin so that the spaces between ‘number of days (months etc.)’ and ‘days (months etc.)’ will become non breaking spaces?
For instance: 7<code>&nbsp;</code>days.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] fha_time_diff: A Time Since generator

You’d have to change all spaces inside double quotes in the last few lines of the code, which start with “if (!empty”.

And you’re right, a non-breaking space should probably be the default behaviour, I’ll think about it.

Don’t mean to be a pest Mamash, just wondering if you’ve had any time to look into the 320 days until… type thing. To give you and idea, check my wedding countdown on the right side of this page.

Thanks!

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] fha_time_diff: A Time Since generator

I get the idea, cfenison, but to tell the truth, I’m a very bad programmer and it takes ages for me to get working results. I won’t have time to implement this in the few next weeks for sure.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] fha_time_diff: A Time Since generator

Hi nardo,

I’m sorry, I upgraded the plugin format to the RC version and forgot that there are users who haven’t jumped on the dev train yet. OK take this link for the pre-RC plugin format.
