[resolved] get_archives & date (2 posts)

    The WordPress theme that I have installed is using the <?php get_archives('postbypost', 10); ?> to show the titles of the last 10 posts (included a link to the post) on the sidebar.

    But I want to show the date & title of the last x posts on the homepage, like this:

    date post | title post

    I don't get it working with the get_archives function and couldn't find a solution on this forum, so could you please help me?

    Use this:

    <ul>
    <?php
    $latest = get_posts('numberposts=10');
    foreach( $latest as $post ):
    ?>
    <li><?php the_time(get_option('date_format')); ?> | <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></li>
    <?php endforeach ?>
    </ul>
