    Hey There,
    I"m working away at a site a need a bit of help. I'm wondering if anyone has an answer to the following.

    I'm trying to display the 3 most recent blog entry titles along with the date it was written on and the author. I've got it displaying the title, but need a hand displaying the date and author. So I basically want it to look like the following....

    October 9th - Author of Post
    Title of the most recent Post.

    Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Simon

    do you just need to know what to call to to get the info to display?

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags

    that shows all the template tags

    the_date works for date, but the_time is better you just have to format them properly

    and of course the_author shows the author

    (the_time is better than the_date because if you have 2 posts with the same date, the_date only shows up once)
