On this Day Functionality

Do you have an idea of how to setup an “On this day” functionality? I was thinking in the coverage element to write the date as: DD-Month

The only trouble I could see is making sure the entries show in correct order in the year display. I’m thinking I may need two date fields to make this possible (YYYY being the second), then linking them together in some sorta criteria.

I think that having two elements, one including the year (probably Date) and one not (Coverage would bend the Dublin Core definition a bit; you could also create some Item Type Metadata element for the “On this day” data).

As long you keep the formatting consistent, you could then use Search By Metadata to link from a day to other items with the same value.

Thank you! This was about what I expected too.
