    Hello — I just realized that when I publish a new post and and post date is today, it doesn’t show a date in the byline? Could you share a fix?

    Thanks!

    Hey Sam

    I need to perhaps relook at the customization we did for you. Please, remind me, was the original task to remove the icons and change the format to:

    Posted on {date} by {author} in {categories} ?

    Hi Andrew,

    The CSS is:

    /* CSS for Byline */

    .entry-header .entry-meta span {
    display: inline-block;
    margin-right: 5px;
    }
    .entry-header .entry-meta span:before, .entry-header .entry-meta a:before {
    content: none !important;
    }
    .single .entry-header .entry-meta .entry-date:before {
    content: none;
    }
    .single #main .entry-header .entry-meta .updated {
    display: none;
    }

    And the snippet is:

    if ( ! function_exists( ‘puro_posted_on’ ) ) :
    /**
    * Prints HTML with meta information for the current post-date/time and author.
    */
    function puro_posted_on() {
    $time_string = ‘<time class=”entry-date published updated” datetime=”%1$s”>%2$s</time>’;
    if ( get_the_time( ‘U’ ) !== get_the_modified_time( ‘U’ ) ) {
    $time_string = ‘<time class=”entry-date published” datetime=”%1$s”>%2$s</time><time class=”updated” datetime=”%3$s”>%4$s</time>’;
    }
    $time_string = sprintf( $time_string,
    esc_attr( get_the_date( ‘c’ ) ),
    esc_html( get_the_date() ),
    esc_attr( get_the_modified_date( ‘c’ ) ),
    esc_html( get_the_modified_date() )
    );
    $posted_on = sprintf(
    esc_html_x( ‘Posted on %s’, ‘post date’, ‘puro’ ),
    ‘ . $time_string . ‘
    );
    $byline = sprintf(
    esc_html_x( ‘by %s’, ‘post author’, ‘puro’ ),
    ‘<span class=”author vcard”>‘ . esc_html( get_the_author() ) . ‘</span>’
    );
    $cats = sprintf(
    esc_html_x( ‘in %s’, ‘categories in’, ‘puro’ ),
    get_the_category_list( __( ‘, ‘, ‘puro’ ) )
    );
    echo ‘<span class=”posted-on”>’ . $posted_on . ‘</span><span class=”byline”> ‘ . $byline . ‘</span><span class=”cat-links”>’. $cats .'</span>’; // WPCS: XSS OK.
    }
    endif;

    Thanks!

    Thanks.

    Try changing your CSS as follows:

    /* CSS for Byline */
    
    .entry-header .entry-meta span {
    	display: inline-block;
    	margin-right: 5px;
    }
    .entry-header .entry-meta span:before,
    .entry-header .entry-meta a:before {
    	content: none !important;
    }
    .single .entry-header .entry-meta .entry-date:before {
    	content: none;
    }
    .entry-header .entry-meta .updated {
    	display: inline-block;
    }

    It works! Thank you, sir.

    Is there an easy to to put the featured image below the post title on the front page when I only show excerpts of posts? If it’s a pain, no worries. But I just switched from full posts to excerpts, and would love to switch the order.

    Thanks Andrew!

    Glad that helped.

    Not without getting into the files. We can do it but we’d need to switch the order of the code as it’s loaded. Let me know 🙂

    If you’re up for it, I am!

    So only on archive pages? Not on the single page. Correct?

    If so then add this file to your child theme:

    https://purothemes.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/content.php_.zip

    Unzip first.

    Thanks Andrew. It works! However, I wasn’t previously using a child theme, and when I added the child that came with the original puro download, some of the settings from the original changed (e.g., to show excerpts), and many of the widgets disappeared. I could manually change these back, but wasn’t sure if this was indicative of a larger issue with the child theme I set up. Any thoughts?

    Child theme changes the theme slug so everything resets. Download plugin called Customizer Import/Export plugin, go back to parent, download settings, change to child, import settings.

    On my phone so description brief 🙂

    Thanks Andrew. All fixed now, however, with the child theme, for some strange reason it now shows both the post date and update date side by side like this: Posted on April 10, 2017April 11, 2017 by Sam Kornsteinin General

    Any thoughts on an easy fix?

    Is the Custom CSS I sent being applied to the child theme? Is it still active?

    Still active, and other customm css insertions are working. It’s strange. Even when I comment out the CSS for byline, it looks the same.

    Try removing this from Custom CSS:

    .entry-header .entry-meta .updated {
        display: inline-block;
    }
