FAQ Go from FAQ to start of Today In History

Where is the event data coming from?

The events are loaded from Wikipedia day pages, such as https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/February_29#Events. Please note that we don’t filter any events, some events may be catastrophes or terrorist attacks.

How often are the events updated?

The plugin will load events every time the slide is displayed. If you have selected random events, then the events will differ each time slide is shown.

What happens if my player doesn’t have an Internet connection?

The player will load all events for a given day the first time the plugin loads. If the device does not have an Internet connection on the first load, the plugin will not be visible. Subsequent loads don’t require an Internet connection as the data is stored locally after the first successful load.
