Introducing Dropdate: Better Date Selection in ExpressionEngine

Published on 17th March, 2010

A few weeks ago, I quietly added a couple of new ExpressionEngine add-ons to the Experience GitHub account. Both add-ons were fully functioning, but lacked any meaningful documentation, hence their rather silent release.

A couple of hours on the train yesterday afforded me the opportunity to fill this instructional void, and the first of the undercover add-ons — DropDate — now has a proper home on the Experience website.

And what is DropDate, exactly? Allow me to quote myself:

    <div markdown="1">DropDate is a custom fieldtype, enabling easy selection of dates in the Control Panel or Stand-Alone Entry Forms using day, month, and year drop-downs.</div></blockquote>

A full description, ZIP file, and of course documentation, can be found on the DropDate page.
