I have a strange issue on an new install. For certain posts within the loop on the main page, the_date() returns NOTHING.
The surrounding span tags are there, but there's nothing in them. It doesn't happen on every post, but once a post becomes afflicted, it doesn't fix itself.
I'm not sure, but I belive this happens upon editing a post, but again, not ever time. I've been able to recover the date on a couple of posts by changing the timestamp to another value, and re-saving the post, however even that doesn't always work.
Is anyone else experiencing this? - Is this a problem with the_date() specifically?, should I try using the_time()?
Cheers for any responses, even if they're just to mock me :)
