I seem to recall trying a theme - I forget which; maybe Marinelli? - where each post on the from page had a nice little calnedar icon with the day and month of the pst.

Is that a module which I can use on other themes?


It's a simple theme modification, probably also easily done via .css. There is not need for a module for this.

Simply edit your themes node.tpl.php page in your theme directory/templates/


 <?php print $submitted; ?>

Wrap a simple tag round it like so:

      <span class="date_submitted"><?php print $submitted; ?></span>

Write your css:

.date_submitted {
  background: url("../img/icons/calendar_view_month.png") no-repeat scroll left top transparent; 

You have to save the calendar image or create your own -> Calendar Image

You also probably need to do some simple formatting in the css like padding-left (to push the text to the right to stop it overlaying the image) etc ...

If you don't know what I am on about, read up about css3 and drupal themeing and learn some basics.

  • +1 and the answer, thanks. I reckon I can handle that. What I need to read up on is how to prevent my mods being overwritten if the theme is ever updated. – Mawg says reinstate Monica Nov 23 '11 at 2:39
