  • Same request for me.

    I see the code here is what needs to be edited – perhaps someone can figure out what to change it to.


    <?php if ($date == true) { ?>
    							<span class="rpwe-time"><?php echo human_time_diff(get_the_time('U'), current_time('timestamp')) . __(' ago', 'rpwe'); ?></span>
    						<?php } ?>

    Follow up – after tinkering I’ve figured it out.

    Change the above code to

    <?php if ($date == true) { ?>
    	<span class="rpwe-time"><?php echo get_the_date(); ?></span>current_time('timestamp')) . __(' ago', 'rpwe'); ?></span>
    	<?php } ?>

    Thanks troy7890 for the response. In fact, there’s a leftover in your code, probably a copy/paste error. This code works.

    <?php if ($date == true) { ?>
    <span class=”rpwe-time”><?php echo get_the_date(); ?>
    <?php } ?>

    Thank you very much.

    Wow yeah, I really did paste that in wrong and didn’t bother to check it afterwards. Sorry about that.

    So just replace what’s on line 104 of widget-recent-posts-extended.php with this
    <span class="rpwe-time"><?php echo get_the_date(); ?></span>

    Glad I could help.

    Hmmm.. Maybe in the future I should offer to change the date settings. For everyone who needs to change the date output, the code from @troy7890 and @naoeobvio should works.

    Thanks to both of you.


    Ops, I cut the span tag in the end. Thanks for the corrected code.


    An option would be nice, since your plugin is the best Recent Posts I could find. But I can’t ask for more, it’s great as it is. And as a workaround I made a copy of the plugin, renamed the plugin and widget adding ´Fixed Date´ to both, so I can use them in diffenrent ocasions.
    Thank you very much for your support.

    Please update to 0.8, I already added the absolute date option 😉
