The plugin I am going to cover in this post, is a brand new one written for ClassicPress; Widget Announcements.
Announce holidays, events, achievements and notable historical figures in a widget.
Announcements can be made:
- One off
- Good Friday
- Easter Sunday
- Easter Monday
- Monthly on the nth day (e.g. 2nd Wednesday of every month)
- Annually on the nth day of the month (e.g. 4th Thursday of November every year)
Announcements are created as a custom post type and can have details, an image, additional text after the image and can be assigned to multiple categories. A widget can be deployed to a sidebar or other widget area and include the announcements from a category.
The plugin can be downloaded via my Development site.
