View Full Version : Help! All wordpress posts showing same day! Why???

11-23-2010, 06:07 PM
For some reason, all of my posts are showing November 11. I don't know why this is happening because they were not all posted on the same day. I even did a test post today and when published, it says Nov 11 as well. When I go to quick edit from my posts, it displays the correct date and time but once published, my blog page shows all post for the same date - NOV 11! I've tried deactivating all my plugins and that didn't help. When I switch to the twentyten theme it works properly. I'm using the Promag theme and I don't want to change it. What should I do??? This is driving me crazy. Been working at it for two days now.

I don't know if this makes a difference but I have made my homepage a static page and created a blog page.

Are you using WPMU (Multi-user) or just standard WP for one blog OR running a blog which is suffixed '.wordpress.com', i.e. a blog run through WordPress rather than installed on your own domain.

If you're using standard WP then I can't see that it will be a problem that you've got your own index page.

Have you edited the promag theme at all?

Does the date display wrong on every page the blog entry is on? I.e. on the article page, blog frontpage, archive pages, tagged article pages etc. or just on a few specific pages?

If you can get the answers to these questions I can probably help you more.

I'm using standard wordpress for one blog that is installed on my own domain.

The only editing that I've done to the Promag theme is adding the Feature Content gallery plugin. To make sure it wasn't that, I changed back to the Twenty Ten theme, deleted the plugin, deleted the promag theme and then re-installed it. The posts were still showing Nov 11.

And yes it is showing incorrectly on every page the blog post is on.

Thanks for your response.
The blog page is http://modernmommeka.com/blog

Just downloaded the theme to have a look through the code.

A quick question whilst I do it, when you go to your Dashboard, and 'Edit' your articles, on the right hand side you can adjust the date.

Do the dates there display correctly? If you adjust the date there does it have any effect on the blog display?

I know you mentioned this briefly but I'm just double checking! :)

Yes, on the right hand side the dates display correctly. When I edit and change them it still displays incorrectly in the post.

Thank you again

I've had a look through the files, and actually gone as far as to upload the theme to my own WPMU site to check it out.

On my install of the theme, it also says that the date is November the 11th, no matter what the post date is.

This problem is an issue with the template itself. Having (obviously) not built the template myself, I am unable to edit it to any real extent and try to play around with how it displays without breaking it.

What I'd suggest you do, is post up on the WordPress.org forums or contact the template developer if possible.

This is not a problem with your site, but rather the template as it's the same on my install.

Sorry to not be able to help you further!

I appreciate your time and support. You've helped a great deal. If all else fails I may have to go with another theme.

I've come up with a temporary fix for your problem.

It makes the dates display correct through a few adjustments to some files.

I've put the files you need to change with a read-me file in a .zip, which you can download from:


The changes will make every date that isn't typed by you, on the site, shorten down to 3 letters.

If you ever update your WordPress, this change will be overwritten, however these modifications DO fix the problem you have at the moment.

Let me know how it goes! :)

Thank you so much. Before I start I'd like to clarify. I need to go to my ftp account in order to do this?

11-23-2010, 08:30 PM
Yes, you need to log in to your FTP and upload the files from there into the various directories I specified in the read me.

11-23-2010, 08:30 PM
I can open the read me file but not the other 3 (index, locale, and single). Let me try opening with another program.

11-23-2010, 08:32 PM
You don't need to open the php files, you just need to upload them. What FTP client do you use?

You've unzipped the .zip file as well, obviously?

11-23-2010, 08:43 PM
yes I've unzipped the .zip file. And I use Core FTP Lite

11-23-2010, 08:45 PM
Okay so in Core FTP, connect to the server like you did when you initially uploaded the files.

Go into your public_html folder.

Open up the folder in which you installed Wordpress.

Once in the Wordpress install folder, find the folder called 'wp-includes' put locale.php in there.

Go back to the Wordpress directory and find the 'wp-content' folder and open it.

Open the 'themes' folder.

Open the 'promag' folder.

Upload index.php and single.php into the 'promag' folder.

Should all be fixed! :)

It WORKED !!! Thank you so much. You are a life-saver! I have literally been working on this for two days. I never would have figured it out. I appreciate all of your time and help.

I truly appreciate you! :thumbsup:

Thanks so much

I have the same problem as the previous user. I followed their threads on the WP support site but did not find anything helpful. You (Stub) have seemed to find a solution.

Could you help me too please? I am stumped :(
