  1. Hello!
    Tried to "split" the meta to be above and below the posttitle, but when using this code I only get the author below and not the entrydate above the posttitle, do I remove the authorlink I get the entrydate above the posttitle... what is wrong?

    function meta_split_title($thepostheader) {
    global $post;
    if(is_page() || is_404()){
    $thepostheader = thematic_postheader_posttitle();
    } else {
    $thepostheader = thematic_postmeta_entrydate() . thematic_postheader_posttitle();
    $thepostheader = thematic_postheader_posttitle() . thematic_postmeta_authorlink();
    }
    return $thepostheader;
    }
    add_filter('thematic_postheader', 'meta_split_title');

  2. Hi Soren,

    try this code:

    function meta_split_title($thepostheader) {
    global $post;
    if(is_page() || is_404()){
    $thepostheader = thematic_postheader_posttitle();
    } else {
    $thepostheader = thematic_postmeta_entrydate();
    $thepostheader .= thematic_postheader_posttitle() . thematic_postmeta_authorlink();
    }
    return $thepostheader;
    }
    add_filter('thematic_postheader', 'meta_split_title');

  3. @Soren: Good job on sorting out the code side of things. I have put a link to this thread from your other thread. Probably easier for people to refer to in the future.

  4. Chris and flink,

    Thanks, but there are some problems with the code. I get a questionmark when moving the mouse pointer over the entrydate and the authorlink I have a hard time to change color on. It is darker then the entry-date and I spent half day trying to change it but I had to give up for the moment. I read many post on the forum and trying to use part of codes here and there copy and paste and see what's happen. When you are a beginner for PHP code, I find it very hard to make it work. Some things work but then other things get messed up...

  5. @soren: I think it's probably easiest to find the CSS tag for e.g. the authorlink (using the Firefox extensions Webdeveloper or Firebug) and then amend/override accordingly in style.css?

    I'm still learning about Thematic/frameworks etc. as well, so I find looking through the forums very helpful. Great thing is if something messes up, one can always delete it out of the child theme functions.php :p

  6. I have finally got this code that seems to work for what I want. One thing I wonder about is when you put your mousepointer over the entrydate a questionamark "?" shows up. What is wrong there? Next I would like to put "meta-sep-tag" on both sides of the "[" postcoments "]", how would I do this with the code below?

    Thanks


    function meta_split_title($thepostheader) {
    global $post;
    if(is_page() || is_404()){
    $thepostheader = thematic_postheader_posttitle();
    } else {
    $thepostheader = thematic_postmeta_entrydate() .thematic_postfooter_postcomments();
    $thepostheader .= thematic_postheader_posttitle() . thematic_postmeta_authorlink();
    }
    return $thepostheader;
    }
    add_filter('thematic_postheader', 'meta_split_title');

  7. @soren: for future reference - the questionmark appears because of the <abbr>, abbreviation HTML tag, in the code for thematic_post_meta_entrydate.
    I guess there is some semantic reasoning behind this but it is possible to remove this.
    Just put this in your child themes functions.php:

    // Create custom entry date for post meta
    function child_postmeta_entrydate() {
        $entrydate = '<span class="meta-prep meta-prep-entry-date">' . __('Published: ', 'thematic') . '</span>';
        $entrydate .= '<span class="entry-date">';
        $entrydate .= get_the_time(thematic_time_title());
        $entrydate .= get_the_time(thematic_time_display());
        $entrydate .= '</span>';
    
        return $entrydate;
    
    } // end child_postmeta_entrydate()
    add_filter('thematic_post_meta_entrydate', 'child_postmeta_entrydate');

  8. For even more reference:
    Just saw this in the CSS:

    abbr, acronym {
    border-bottom:1px dotted #333333;
    cursor:help;
    }

    If you remove or change the cursor:help; then you will change the cursor back to default or you could set it to something else...

    Most of the time there will always be a simpler answer. ;)
