Blog

Is there a way to add the dates to the blogs? I'm looking for the dates to appear below the title in a smaller font.

if you're following this tutorial:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbplAlzNexI

you can add the ContentDate to the recordset to return the blog date.

Thanks Jason,

Okay, I've got a date to show up but its wrong. It is showing (31/12/1969) as the date. How do I get it to show the date the blog was created. Here is the PHP code that I am using. I found it on another post:

<?php

include('WA_CMS/addtosite.php');

echo(date("d/m/Y",strtotime($row_NewsPanelRS['ContentDate'])));

?>

if you dont use the dat function, what is returned:

php:
<?php

include('WA_CMS/addtosite.php');
echo 
$row_NewsPanelRS['ContentDate']; 
?>

your recordset is named BlogRS

this code is using a different recordset name:

php:
echo(date("d/m/Y",strtotime($row_NewsPanelRS['ContentDate'])));



it needs to be:

php:
echo(date("d/m/Y",strtotime($row_BlogRS['ContentDate'])));




NOTE: Instead of pasting the page code into the message, please compress the php page to a zip archive and attach the zip file.

Okay I missed that, sorry.

I updated the file but I'm still getting the 31/12/1969 date
