Postpins date formatting is not following WordPress settings


Question

Posted · Report post

Hi, I'm using the postpins on a site homepage to display latest news post.

It's a dutch site so the date formatting should be dutch too.

Now when I change the WordPress setting for date formatting, the postpins formatting stays the same.

Is it hardcoded somehow in the postpins section?

Unfortunately, child sections can only be used when using a child theme. In the past the Customise plugin did support child sections, but with some of our users having rather poor hosting, it caused some errors so the Customise plugin had this feature removed. If you wish to override the section the only method is using a child theme.

Creating a child section is super easy, all you need to do is:

 

Copy the Postpins folder and upload it to your child theme sections folder, this will now become a child section of PostPins. You can then make your changes there without it effecting the main PostPins.

 

Please bear in mind that in creating a child section, this is considered user created code and we will be unable to provide support for any errors.

Thanks Danny,

 

I don't have a child theme though for this site.

FOr this specific site I used the customize plugin for a few lines of CSS tweaks and a few lines of PHP code (hooks)

 

Should I first create a child theme then?

Or Is there another way to use the child section?

Hi,

 

From what I can see (PHP isn't my forte) it does appear to be hard coded to 'M j, Y'. You're free to create a child section of PostPins and make the necessary changes.
