I'm using the_time function to print the current date on my site. The problem is, that it's returning post or page creation times on pages other than the front page.
Can I force it to print the current time on all views?
the_time() function is a WordPress built-in function to display the time of the post creation.
So if you want to display the current date and time you need to use php function date something like this:
<?php // Assuming today is March 10th, 2001, 5:16:18 pm, and that we are in the // Mountain Standard Time (MST) Time Zone $today = date("F j, Y, g:i a"); // March 10, 2001, 5:16 pm $today = date("m.d.y"); // 03.10.01 $today = date("j, n, Y"); // 10, 3, 2001 $today = date("Ymd"); // 20010310 $today = date('h-i-s, j-m-y, it is w Day'); // 05-16-18, 10-03-01, 1631 1618 6 Satpm01 $today = date('\i\t \i\s \t\h\e jS \d\a\y.'); // it is the 10th day. $today = date("D M j G:i:s T Y"); // Sat Mar 10 17:16:18 MST 2001 $today = date('H:m:s \m \i\s\ \m\o\n\t\h'); // 17:03:18 m is month $today = date("H:i:s"); // 17:16:18 // and echo it out echo $today; ?>
Hopes this helps.
