WordPress Plugin: Display number of days since first post

This plugin shows the number of days between now and the first day you published an entry.

It’s free to use for anyone, have fun.


  • Copy text below into a blank text file named days_old.php (using Notepad or SimpleText)
  • Upload that text file to your plugins directory (usually wp-content/plugins)
  • Activate it under Plugins in your admin
  • Call it from a template by inserting the line:
    <?php days_since_birth(); ?>

    This will give you a number which is the number of days between now and when your first post was published.

I do not provide support of any kind for this script.
