Developer Notes

SH is very interested in the ways in which publishers use the Advanced Dates plugin. Please share ideas and usage notes in the comments section of the plugin URI: http://studiohyperset.com/wordpress-advanced-dates-plugin/4016

Also, the WordPress functions get_the_time and the_time work only on pages while get_the_date and the_date work only on posts. This is largely meaningless since developers can display the same date, time, and publication information using all four. Nevertheless, when developing a theme that builds on the Advanced Dates plugin, or trying to integrate the plugin into an existing theme, developers will want to keep these WordPress boundaries in mind.

Moreover, if a publisher or developer finds the plugin isn't working for a particular theme, it's likely the result of improper usage of one or more of the four date-oriented WordPress functions referenced above. For the Advanced Date plugin to work, developers need to use the get_the_time and the_time functions on pages and the get_the_date and the_date functions on posts.
