WordPress modifications


Trying a hosted blog for things I may want to refer to later and things that I want to share. Needed something with a proper backend – mostly for tagging and menu interfacing, and with an easy enough to use interface that it doesn’t impede putting out content that I want to.

The initial temptation was to fire up a new VPS, install all the individual packages, and really get it tweaked in exactly the way I wanted. Instead I’m trying a hosted platform, and only doing easy tweaks to it.

Internet items without a timestamp on them are almost as annoying as ones that use an ambiguous date format.

Modified content.php, added:

<?php echo get_the_date('Y-M-d H:i D'); ?>

Then later changed it to:

<?php echo get_the_date('Y-M-d'); ?>

Since the date/time is now at the top, also modify functions.php – function twentytwelve_entry_meta()
*2014-10-05 this is no longer the case, didn’t make this change with the change in hosts.

if ( $tag_list ) {
$utility_text = __( ‘This entry was posted in %1$s and tagged %2$s on %3$s<span class=”by-author”> by %4$s</span>.’, ‘twentytwelve’ );
} elseif ( $categories_list ) {
$utility_text = __( ‘This entry was posted in %1$s on %3$s<span class=”by-author”> by %4$s</span>.’, ‘twentytwelve’ );
} else {
// $utility_text = __( ‘This entry was posted on %3$s<span class=”by-author”> by %4$s</span>.’, ‘twentytwelve’ );
