Recent Post (Widget) - Show Date Of Post

Question

Posted · Report post

I'm looking for a way to add the post date to the 'recent post' widget area. For example: Article Title (May 06)

So instead of having the date in the metabar you want it in the article title? Is that right?

Technically yes...but just in the 'most recent' post widget. (I still want it in the metabar) The widget would look more like this... [quote][u]Recent Posts:[/u] How to train your dog (May 06) Frisbie dog training 101 (May 04) Good food for dog training (May 01) Competitive dogs (April 20)[/quote]

Are you open to using a plugin? Haven't tried this one, but it looks promising: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/advanced-recent-posts-widget It's not exactly like you've outlined, but its closer...

Even better - mini loops - http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/mini-loops/other_notes. Can customise the living daylights out of it! This is the code I used in the item format. Can have the date clickable or not.
  • [title][date format=" (F y)"]

    Hi rhelling. The default Wordpress Recent Posts widget is pretty basic. One PageLines.com/Blog we actually use Special Recent Posts plug-in, maybe give that a try? http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/special-recent-posts/
