Template::Plugin::ByDate - Keeps/removes included text based on whether the current date is within range.
[% USE ByDate %] [% FILTER ByDate starting = '2006-05-02' until = '2006-08-22' %] This text only shows up from May 2, 2006 through August 22, 2006. [% END %]
We accept one optional argument, the word "not". If specified, it will reverse the meaning of the filter: rather than keeping the text if the current date is between starting and until, ignore it. e.g.,
[% FILTER ByDate starting = '2006-05-02' until = '2006-08-22' %] This only shows up inside the date range [% END %]
[% FILTER ByDate 'not' starting = '2006-05-02' until = '2006-08-22' %] This only shows up outside the date range [% END %]
The starting and until dates are actually parsed by Date::Parse. If you do not specify a time, the starting time is 00:00:00, while the until time is 23:59:59. This is done by checking the until stamp for a colon - if there is no colon, we add " 23:59:59" to the string before passing it into Date::Parse. If that doesn't work for you, please let me know what string you're using.
