Support » Fixing WordPress » Relative times for posts are off.

  • Hello. I’m switching over to relative times for my website and am having some trouble. For some reason, articles start at “Posted 4 hours ago” instead of “Posted less than a minute ago,” even if I did post the article just a minute ago.

    The function I’m using is below:

    if(!function_exists('how_long_ago')){
            function how_long_ago($timestamp){
                $difference = time() - $timestamp;
    
                if($difference >= 60*60*24*365){        // if more than a year ago
                    the_date();
                } elseif($difference >= 60*60*24*7*5){  // if more than five weeks ago
                    $int = intval($difference / (60*60*24*30));
                    $s = ($int > 1) ? 's' : '';
                    $r = $int . ' month' . $s . ' ago';
                } elseif($difference >= 60*60*24*7){        // if more than a week ago
                    $int = intval($difference / (60*60*24*7));
                    $s = ($int > 1) ? 's' : '';
                    $r = $int . ' week' . $s . ' ago';
                } elseif($difference >= 60*60*24){      // if more than a day ago
                    $int = intval($difference / (60*60*24));
                    $s = ($int > 1) ? 's' : '';
                    $r = $int . ' day' . $s . ' ago';
                } elseif($difference >= 60*60){         // if more than an hour ago
                    $int = intval($difference / (60*60));
                    $s = ($int > 1) ? 's' : '';
                    $r = $int . ' hour' . $s . ' ago';
                } elseif($difference >= 60){            // if more than a minute ago
                    $int = intval($difference / (60));
                    $s = ($int > 1) ? 's' : '';
                    $r = $int . ' minute' . $s . ' ago';
                } else {                                // if less than a minute ago
                    $r = 'less than a minute ago';
                }
    
                return $r;
            }
        }

    Any ideas? Thanks.
