WP Default Theme, one element i want to use (8 posts)

    Hi everyone,
    I'm sure lots of people know about the default wordpress theme.
    I saw that it had one element that I don't have in my new theme installation.
    It is some kind of block with two borders at the top and bottom, it can be seen at the Comments where "this post was posted on blah blah in catagory blah". I'm sure you don't get what I mean.
    In other words, see this image.
    If anybody can tell me anything I have to do (i've got full access to the WP files) like add something to the CSS or something, that would be great. I don't care about customizing the colors in that.

    Thanks everyone!

    Try adding the following code in either your index.php or single.php:
    This entry was posted on
    <?php the_time('l, F jS, Y') ?> at
    <?php the_time()
    ?> and is filed under
    <?php the_category(', ')
    ?>. You can follow any responses to this entry through the <?php comments_rss_link('RSS 2.0');

    Good luck!

    What I'd do:
    - look at the source code of the page from where you made that picture
    - check out what div/span is around that portion of the text
    - find in the (original) CSS file the styling for that div
    - apply it to your own stylesheet

    It's called <p class="postmetadata alt"> when I see the source code, it is enclosed in <p class="postmetadata alt"> and </p> tags.

    I see:
    .narrowcolumn .postmetadata {
    text-align: center;

    .commentmetadata {
    font-weight: normal;

    small, #sidebar ul ul li, #sidebar ul ol li, .nocomments, .postmetadata, blockquote, strike {
    color: #777;

    .narrowcolumn .postmetadata {
    padding-top: 5px;
    .widecolumn .postmetadata {
    margin: 30px 0;
    .postmetadata ul, .postmetadata li {
    display: inline;
    list-style-type: none;
    list-style-image: none;
    .commentmetadata {
    margin: 0;
    display: block;

    Gah! confusing!

    You should look in the source code for the page in which it displays, to see what class or id the postmetadata div is using, it's usually easier to figure out that way.
