MTOnThisDay

<MTOnThisDay> Movable Type Plugin

The plugin support for Movable Type 2.2 is fantastic! And now we can develop the stuff that Ben just hasn't gotten around to yet. Here's one-- I've created a container tag that lets you pull entries that match the current system/entry month and day.

If you want to read more about it, visit the MT Plugin support forum page I've set up for this plugin.

To download the plugin, click here.

Updated on July 5. See included readme.txt file for details.

It's not working for me Brad! I've posted the details over @ the plugins support forum... help! :)

Hey Brad,

Does this mean you've made properties into a plug-in?

christina said:

http://www.eleganthack.com/archives/002824.html#002824

shows only one year. I'm not sure why.

amancay said:

um...
http://amancay.com/agenda/archives/1990/11/05.php
shows two links for the same year (there are two entries that day...) shouldn't it be one link? to the page of that day?

Brad Choate said:

amancay: My guess is you aren't using the <MTDateHeader> tag around your link as the readme.txt file explains. :)

Any idea if there's a way to make it display some text if there is no entry on that day? I tried it with the MTElse tag like in the forum, but that didn't work.
