This page exists as a landing page to support the Facts WordPress plugin. You may find additional information on our blog by searching the facts tag.
Here’s a fact for you: The domain name of fayd.org means nothing. It’s just one that was chosen from the pile to serve its noble purpose. If memory serves, a friend had me register it when he had a “Fashion At Your Door” (FAYD) idea. When all the domains expired, I kept this one.
Some of the facts that we have on record are interesting and weve validated… others are crap and we have no idea if they’re true. Some of the records are submitted via a few different third-party platforms so we dont have an overly effective way of confirming everything that’s posted to us.
The result of the shortcode
[fact] will render something like this on your website:
A cesium atom in an atomic clock beats over nine billion times a second.
True? No idea. The bolding is mine.
To wrap the fact in paragraph tags (as WordPress usually requires) use
p="1"(false by default). Not wrapping it in
ptags means you can include the fact in inline text.
The cache period determines how long the record should be stored in your local WP database before we retrieve a new record. 3600 seconds (1 hour) by default.
