Hello, I've been looking for an answer to my question in the forum but I couldn't find it. I was wondering whether it is possible to show the PostKicker or the Byline only in some posts.

Let's say I have two type of posts: "news" and "places to visit". I want the "news" to show only the date and I want the "places to visit" to show only the address (assume I enter the address as a custom value). Is there any way to do this?

Thank you again in advance!

yes, in 3.6.7 you can edit index.php and add a conditional php statement to test for the category you want and make the TRUE portion the code that displays the byline.

I have no idea how to do that. What should I exactly do? Is there any place where I could learn to do that? I apologize for so many questions, I'm new with this!

To learn the various wordpress conditional tags, you can go to http://codex.wordpress.org/Conditional_Tags
to learn php you can do a google search 'php tutorial'

Thanks, juggledad! I've been trying to use this code to exclude the date from category 3 but it didn't work:

Code:
<?php if (!in_category('3')) { ?> %date('d.m.y')% <?php }; ?>
I put the code in the loop. I also tried activating and deactivating the
Code:
%date('d.m.y')%
code in the kicker, but nothing changed. Does anyone know what am I doing wrong?

Thank you

go find all the 'BUGFIX 367-nn:...' threads in the 'New Versions & Updates' forum and apply the patches.

Which of your posts ARE in category '3' and which are not?

I'll do that right now!

There are two posts in category 3: "Maestría en... " and "Especialización en...". The remaining posts are in category 4.

Ps the string is showing on the other pages

Do you mean like this?:

Code:
<?php if (!in_category('3')) { ?> date('d.m.y') <?php }; ?>
If so, I tried that but is still not working. I noted the string in other pages but I don't know why that happens. Any ideas? Thanks

It doesn't work. With this code, today's date appears in all pages instead of the string.

well that's what you are telling it to do. If you only want it on post pages you need to expand the conditional statement to check if you are on a 'page' page or a 'post' page

But, besides that problem, the thing is that I'm trying to exclude the date from category 3, and the posts in category 3 still shows the date. Do you know why the code is not working?

are your posts only in category 3 or do they have multiple categories?
why don't you display the category names in the post footer

The first two posts are in category 3 only. Category names are displayed now in the post footer.

The dates are the date you created the post, not the date displayed by the code you put in.
What do you have at ato->Edit POST/PAGE INFO ITEMS
KICKER: Homepage
KICKER: Multi Post Pages
KICKER: Single Post Pages
and KICKER: "Page" Pages


If you click on the categpry name, and go to the category page, you see two dates, today and the date of the post

Exactly. What I am trying to do is to show the date I created the post in all categories but in category 3. Am I using the wrong code for that?

Sorry, I didn't realize it was a question. I apologize for my English, I'm not a native speaker.

At ato->Edit POST/PAGE INFO ITEMS->Kicker I have:
Code:
%date('d.m.y')%
Thank you very much for your help!

if you read the documentation on that page you will see
Quote:
%date('F jS, Y')% - Display the date and/or time the post was published at. Many configuration options at PHP Date. Because most letters of the alphabet represent a certain PHP date/time function, you need to escape each letter that you want to display LITERALLY. To escape a letter, put a hash character # right before that letter. (Note that this is different from the original "PHP way" of escaping with backslashes \. The theme needs the hash character #). The hash will tell the theme that you mean the actual letter and not the corresponding PHP date/time function.
so when put in the kicker, the %date(...) returns the 'date and/or time the post was published' - it is just a way to format the post date

When used in index.php %date(...) returns the current because it just a PHP function and that is what the function does.

You should go back and read post #2 of this thread - edit index.php and make the code that displays the byline or kicker (what ever you want) the TRUE portion of your conditional statement.

Like this:
Code:
<?php if (is_category('3')) { bfa_post_kicker('<div class="post-kicker">','</div>'); } ?>
? I tried this but it didn't work. Thanks again!

go read http://codex.wordpress.org/Condition..._Category_Page and then see if you can tell me what you are doing wrong.
