Examples

To produce something like this:

Heading: March, 2008
Post: dated 15th March
Post: dated 28th March
Post: dated 29th March

Heading: April, 2008
Post: dated 1st April
Post: dated 4th April

etc…

Add a date header like this:
<?php intermittent_date( 'F Y', '<h3 class="date-header">', '</h3>' ); ?>

To produce something like this:

Heading: 25th March, 2008
Post: dated 08:00 on 25th March
Post: dated 11:37 on 25th March
Post: dated 15:33 on 25th March

Heading: 22th March, 2008
Post: dated 09:12 on 25th March
Post: dated 10:16 on 25th March

etc…

Add a date header like this:
<?php intermittent_date( 'jS F Y', "<h3 class='date-header'>", "</h3>" ); ?>

It’s up to you to style it with CSS then (although your theme may handle this for you).
