V4.0 causing issue with date stamp of post on homepage (6 posts)

    I've just updated to V4.0 of YARRP, and it looks like all is good except one very weird thing I have noticed on my homepage here:


    If you look beneath the second slider, you'll see a section titled 'TV Industry News'.

    The date stamp and the 'Read More' link with the main post with the thumbnail in that section now shows a weird date and the read more link doesn't work.

    The post there with the thumbnail was posted TODAY, and yet with YARRP activated it says it was published 1 year, 8 months ago by Act On This Admin Read More...

    Deactivating YARRP fixes the issue.

    Have you any idea why this could be happening?

    It was fine with all previous versions

    Sorry to hear about this. Did this happen with a previous version of YARPP? Are you using a custom template or the new thumbnails feature?

    Hey Mitcho!

    Thanks for the reply!

    I'm just using the default list setting that I've selected in the backend.

    Nothing custom at all.

    With all previous versions of YARPP it's been just fine and when I deactivate v4.0 the problem goes away.

    YARPP doesn't actually display any related posts on the homepage, so I'm not too sure why it's affecting the posts there.

    Any ideas what I need to look at?

    I'm not really a coder at all though, so am a little limited!

    Thanks! :)

    I see what you mean. Without knowing more about the code used in that section of the theme, I can't really help, but in particular it's important as you state that there's no YARPP being used on that page, which is mysterious.

    What if you turn off the "automatic display" options, but keep YARPP on? Have you turned on the new "also display on archives" option?

    Hey Mitcho!

    Right, when I turn off the automatic display options for posts the problem disappears.

    I have never had the 'also display on archives' feature ticked, so it's not that.

    For some reason, when I have the automatic display option for posts ticked I get the strange date issue.

    I haven't changed anything at all since using previous YARPP versions which were all just fine, so something has changed in version 4 that is somehow being called or affecting that post excerpt on the homepage.

    Is it worth me sending you the homepage file to look at the actual code used there?

    I can either send you a file or give you FTP access to my staging site which is identical to production.

    Let me know if you can help, and thanks again for your time! :)

    Sure, feel free to email me the file, at yarpp@mitcho.com . Please don't give me any FTP credentials. :)
