I am going to write my own post display thing, and I cannot find a list of all these type of functions:

the_date();
the_title();  
the_excerpt();

I'm sure there are more, but where can I find a list?

Adola, what exactly is your question. As it stands, my answer doesn't answer your question, but you've marked it as such. Now, you need to consider — re-editing your question, OR unmarking my answer. :) –  its_me Jul 19 '12 at 8:47
    
I cannot understand how this question is either not constructive, or has no answer. I clearly asked a simple question, where can I find more of these functions. I found them by using a tutorial, Aahan Krish's answer gave the direction I needed. To close this question is both irritating, and clearly misguided. –  Adola Jul 19 '12 at 20:50
    
Your question is just not specific enough. A simple search answers it already. Plus, you are asking for a List Of Things – something we really want to avoid. See here for more information. –  toscho Jul 19 '12 at 21:22

#1) A doc for a function on WordPress codex lists all related functions at the bottom of the page. For example, this is the doc for the_date(); — look at the section highlighted in the screenshot below:

#2) Another very good reference is QueryPosts. When you search for a function on QueryPosts, you can presume that the search results are related to that function (at least in most cases). For example:

Click on the image to enlarge...

Now, for the sake of relevance, here go the links to the pages for the respective functions where you can find other functions related to them:

And then there's Google. For e.g. the_date(); on Google Search

Your best bet is the Wordpress Function Reference, the template tags list, or the even the Wordpress source.

@Rarst built a wonderful tool for this, named queryposts.

Disclaimer: I know this isn't a good answer, as too short, but I close vote anyway :)
