Anyone know how to display date and time on older posts?

Posts for the current day display the time posted, but for previous days just the date.

Is there a way to include the date and time of older posts?

Thanks

    I personally use Moment.js for stuff like this.

    Thanks, @kasperisager.

    I'll try to work out how to apply that at some point.

    the easiest way is to change what you want via definitions in locale.php

    add the following defs in /conf/locale.php

    e.g.

    // this will put time on posts in previous days
    $Definition['Date.DefaultDayFormat'] = '%B %e %l:%M%p';
    
    // this will put time and day on posts in previous years
    $Definition['Date.DefaultYearFormat'] = '%B %e %l:%M%p';
    
    

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

    Also, you do realize when you hover over the date in vanilla 2.1.x that the full date appears at least on some themes.

    I hadn't realised that.

    I'm still on 2.0.18 for the live forum.
