Using the Quicktag
The Age Calculator quicktag can be used in any post or page using the following format:[agecalc birthdate=”1978-01-30″ year=”” years=”” multipliery=”” month=”” months=”” multiplierm=””]
The following attributes can be used within the quicktag. Default values can be configured on the Age Calculator’s settings page.
The birthdate attribute is the only manditory attribute, which has to be entered Year, Month and then Day. You can use either a . (period), a
/ (forward slash) or a – (hyphen) as the seperator.
Here are a few valid and invalid birthdate entries:
- 1978-01-30 – Valid
/30 – Valid
- 1978.01.30 – Valid
- 01-30-1978 – Invalid
- 30.01.1978 – Invalid
Sets the text that is returned when the age is 1 year.
Sets the text that is returned when the age is more than 1 year. For example, 15 years.
Used as the multiplier for the year value. For example, if you had a pet web site you could multiply the age by 7 for “dog years”. I giggle every time I say “miltipliery”
