Better Datelines

Lightweight plugin for better dateline management for news sites. Store dateline as a custom meta field instead of putting it in the post content.

How do I enable automatic prepending of dateline to the post content?


add_filter( 'better_datelines_prepend_the_content', '__return_true' );

to your theme's functions.php

How do I change the format of automatically prepended dateline?

There's another filter for that: 'better_datelines_formatted_content', filter accepts 3 arguments, so to add a filter

add_filter( 'better_datelines_formatted_content', 'my_better_datelines_formatted_content', 10, 3);
function my_better_datelines_formatted_content( $formatted_content, $dateline, $original_content ) {
    // Do something

    return $formatted_content;
