    Is it possible to add a svg icon before the title and date?

    Hi Stefan,

    It’s definitely possible.

    There are multiple ways to do it but the easiest way is by adding it through CSS (pseudo element)

    Example:

    time.wp-show-posts-entry-date.published:before {
    content: url('url-path/to/your/icon.svg');
    left: 0;
    margin-right: 5px;
    }
    
    time.wp-show-posts-entry-date.published {
        position: relative;
    }

    Replace the value on the url() to the file path to your SVG file.

    that’s not exactly what I want. Here is an example what I mean:

    To clarify:

    Do you want to replicate the exact layout or perhaps, just add the right chevron icon to the post title?

    The exact layout. Chevron right to the title and date right under the title.

    Try adding this CSS instead.

    .wp-show-posts-entry-title:before {
        content: "> ";
        position: absolute;
        left: 0;
        padding-right: 10px;
        transform: translateX(-100%);
    }
    
    .wp-show-posts-entry-title {
        position: relative;
    }

    The date should be automatically below the title if you set the date dropdown to display “Below title” on WPSP Edit page > Meta tab.

    If you’re trying to change its date format, you’ll have to filter it with PHP.

    Example:

    add_filter( 'wpsp_date_output', function($output, $settings, $time_string){
        if ( 123 === (int) $settings['list_id'] ) {
            $time_string = '<time class="wp-show-posts-entry-date published" datetime="%1$s" itemprop="datePublished">%2$s</time>';
    
            if ( get_the_time( 'U' ) !== get_the_modified_time( 'U' ) ) {
                $time_string .= '<time class="wp-show-posts-updated" datetime="%3$s" itemprop="dateModified">%4$s</time>';
            }
    
            $time_string = sprintf( $time_string,
                esc_attr( get_the_date( 'c' ) ),
                esc_html( get_the_date( 'm.d.y' ) ),
                esc_attr( get_the_modified_date( 'c' ) ),
                esc_html( get_the_modified_date( 'm.d.y' ) )
                );
    
            $output = sprintf(
                        '<span class="wp-show-posts-posted-on wp-show-posts-meta">
                            <a href="%1$s" title="%2$s" rel="bookmark">%3$s</a>
                        </span>',
                        esc_url( get_permalink() ),
                        esc_attr( get_the_time() ),
                        $time_string
            );
        }
        return $output;
    
    }, 10, 3 );

    replace 123 on if ( 123 === (int) $settings['list_id'] ) line to the WPSP list ID you want to apply this date format change on.

    Now the chevron is not aligned with the title (green lines) and outside of the page width (red line).

    The standard date format is fine.

    Ah you mean you want it to be indented.

    Try this:

    .wp-show-posts-entry-title {
        display: flex;
    }
    
    .wp-show-posts-entry-title:before {
        content: "> ";
        padding-right: 10px;
    }
    
    .wp-show-posts-entry-meta:before {
        content: "> ";
        padding-right: 10px;
        visibility: hidden;
    }
