I posted a few weeks ago a request to find out how to create the blog list and blog entry with a date in place where the profile picture/blog type goes (the circle to the left). Ideally, it would still have the dotted line that links between each blog but would have a large date (abbreviated “MAR 13′) instead of my profile picture or blog type.
Unfortunately the method suggested didn’t work….
1) Open includes > loop-index.php, find this code: $link = get_author_posts_url($post->post_author);
2) At the bottom place this code: $date = get_the_date();
3) Then find this code: echo “<span class=’rounded-container’>”.$gravatar.$icon.”</span>
4) Replace it with: echo “<span class=’rounded-container’>”.$date.”</span>
Tbh I wasn’t sure where to place the code: $date = get_the_date(); (the instructions said ‘at the end’ but at the end of where exactly? Although I DID try different logical positions so im not sure thats the problem anyway.
Anyway, even though I said it wasn’t working the topic was closed prematurely.
Can you help please

I’m not sure why the topic was closed early but for step 2, you just put that immediately after the get_author line in step one.
The issue however is that we really can’t give step by step walk through directions for stuff like that and offer support on those new customizations. We’ll sometimes go as far as Ismael did and give a rough basic walk-through but it depends on current queue length and if we happen to have a good idea on how to accomplish it off hand.
Otherwise we would be supporting an infinite amount of customizations beyond the basic theme.
So if the directions above don’t really make sense for you I would recommend looking into a freelance developer or digging in deeper to basic php structure and its output. I’m not even really sure if the above will get you 100% of the way there but it is a good start in just replacing the gravatar variable with the data variable.
