Date Published Shortcode

Description

The short description really says it all. No bullshit, no complex stuff, just a simple shortcode that you can copy and paste to save a few seconds. I really made this so that I wouldn’t have to glance at the date every time that I posted an article; quite lazy, I know, but automating stuff is cool, and now I at least know how to put up a plugin on the WordPress repository.

Screenshots

  • This is what your shortcode should look like. Really simple, just [post_published].

I noticed this coding on a blog, but was paranoid about digging into code. I'm gratified to see it in plugin form. Gave me the motsy to open this up in the wp editor, so I could add my preferred date format ( 'M j, Y' ) for Jul 29, 2018. Happy camper! Thank you
