I just hacked a simple plugin that displays Hebrew dates alongside the current Gregorian dates on posts. This is now active on this site. The alpha quality code (v0.2.0) is now available for your testing. For the most part the code is almost identical to the PHP code that I wrote to display Jewish dates in PhpGedView. While the PhpGedView code has various display options, for the sake of simplicity and the fact that I never wrote any WordPress plugins before, I did not code any of these options yet. Also not done is parsing of the “Month, Year” format of the archive pages. The PhpGedView code has many options such as displaying the dates in
- Hebrew Only – י"ז סיון תשס"ה
- Hebrew and Gregorian – June 24th, 2005 – י"ז סיון תשס"ה
- Hebrew using the Latin characters – 17 Sivan 5765
and more. These may eventually be added to the plugin.
