    Hi there!

    I am wondering if it is possible to show the post category next to the post date. Ideally, what I am looking for is something like “May 17, 2020 | Budgeting.” I would also like to make it so the date is not a link if possible.

    Thank you, Tom!

    Best,

    Connor

    Hi there!

    I was able to get the category next to the date with the built-in option. To remove the link from the date I added:

    add_filter( 'wpsp_date_output', 'tu_wpsp_updated_date_first' );
    function tu_wpsp_updated_date_first() {
    	$time_string = '';
    	
    	$time_string .= '<time class="wp-show-posts-entry-date published" datetime="%1$s" itemprop="datePublished">%2$s</time>';
    	
    	$time_string = sprintf( $time_string,
    		esc_attr( get_the_date( 'c' ) ),
    		esc_html( get_the_date() ),
    		esc_attr( get_the_modified_date( 'c' ) ),
    		esc_html( get_the_modified_date() )
    	);
    	
    	// If our date is enabled, show it
    	$output = sprintf(
    		'<span class="wp-show-posts-posted-on wp-show-posts-meta">
    			%1$s
    		</span>',
    		$time_string
    	);
    
    	return $output;
    	
    }

    This does work (though I am not sure if the PHP is done right, as I was copying code from the forum and then modifying to take out the modified date part.

    Thanks!

    That looks perfect – thanks for sharing the solution 🙂
