#21064 closed enhancement (fixed)

Recent Posts widget: provide optional post date display

Reported by: lancewillett Owned by: westi
Milestone: 3.5 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.4
Component: Widgets Keywords: has-patch dev-feedback commit
Focuses: Cc:


As a small enhancement to the Recent Posts widget, add an option to display the post date next to each post. Similar to how the RSS Widget date can be added to the display.

If enabled (should be off by default) -- the widget's HTML output should include the post date after the post title. The date format should match the WP user-set date format.

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 3.5

Looks good to me.

Minor edit in line 576 (only switch to PHP to print the date) for consistency with line 574.

Would love a core dev feedback and blessing to get this into 3.5, it's a nice improvement and Twenty Twelve can show it off.

Facepalm moment, I didn't close one of the label tags. This causes brokenness in IE browsers on the Widgets admin page; can't drag and drop widgets.
