[Plugin: List category posts] How to change date format?

  • I red documentation and most of the threads in this forum but can’t find out how you change date format. Mine always shows wordpress default.

    //Style for date:
    $lcp_output .= ‘<td>’ . get_the_time($atts[‘date_format’], $single).'</td>’;

    I don’t understand how to config dateformat command and change it. Please help me, thank you.

    I have also noticed that dateformat is broken in .13. It worked at .12. Looking at a diff I think I see the problem. There is a new function lcp_showdate($single) that does the work to show the date. However, this function does not have access to the $atts variable that it tries to use. I assume this code was copied from the old spot. I have updated the function to the code below and updated the function calls to match the new parameter. This change works for me.

    function lcp_showdate($single, $atts){
    	return  ' - ' . get_the_time($atts['dateformat'], $single);//by Verex, great idea!

    Thank you for help. I changed my template but It looks like theres more to change.

    I am getting error: Fatal error: Cannot redeclare lcp_showdate() (previously declared in /home/.../domains/.../public_html/.../wp-content/plugins/list-category-posts/list_cat_posts.php:170) in /home/.../domains/.../public_html/.../wp-content/themes/atahualpa/list-category-posts/docslist.php on line 50
    Can you tell me what is more needs to be changed?

    Ooops, there was some refactoring on version 0.13 that broke the date. I’ll fix it asap. Thanks!

    AcLime, the change YukataNinja is talking about should be done on the plugin itself, not the template. You can do that as a temporary fix while I roll a new version with a fix for this.


    When are you planning to release update? I really don’t understand what YukataNinja said. I changed in list_cat_posts.php now but still don’t work. Don’t know where to change date format… If I change in template don’t work, in list_cat_posts.php don’t work…

    Please fix and release asap.
