I'm using the Views module to show a list of the 3 most recent articles posted on a site. I've set the filter granularity to the specific date of posting and it shows three dates with bullet points in the block. What I would I like to do is get rid of the Bullet points, have the date formatted MM/DD/YYYY and then on the line below the date have the link to the article where the link is the title of the article.

I want this to look like this, where TEXT is the title of the article it links to.

Try the following steps:

  1. Create new date format as you want (MM/DD/YYYY). admin/config/regional/date-time/formats
  2. Create Date type and assign your format. admin/config/regional/date-time
  3. In views: Select your date type under "Choose how users view dates and times:" when you add your date field under "FIELDS".
  4. Add (Content:title)title field (after date field) and Enable the Link this field to the original piece of content checkbox.
  5. Bullet point from your css
  • I can't figure out how to show just three without using the Contextual Filter. How can I get it to show just three of them?

  • Nevermind. I figured out I could use the pager to limit the number of items shown.
