    Hey guys,

    i’ve been rooting around CSS or snippets and trying to figure out why my updated date has started to appear as above, with no space between ‘2019’ and ‘by’. I’m sure this is something dumb I haven’t figured out, it only started today it seems.

    Thank you in advance for any help and apologies if I’m really being dumb πŸ™‚

    I’m using this snippet:

    add_filter( 'generate_post_date_output', function() {
        $time_string = '<time class="entry-date published" datetime="%1$s" itemprop="datePublished">%2$s</time>';
        if ( get_the_time( 'U' ) !== get_the_modified_time( 'U' ) ) {
            $time_string = '<time class="updated" datetime="%3$s" itemprop="dateModified">%4$s</time>';
        $time_string = sprintf( $time_string,
            esc_attr( get_the_date( 'c' ) ),
            esc_html( get_the_date() ),
            esc_attr( get_the_modified_date( 'c' ) ),
            esc_html( get_the_modified_date() )
        return sprintf( '<span class="posted-on">%1$s</span>', // WPCS: XSS ok, sanitization ok.
            sprintf( '<a href="%1$s" title="%2$s" rel="bookmark">%3$s</a>',
                esc_url( get_permalink() ),
                esc_attr( get_the_time() ),
    } ); 

    and this CSS:
    .posted-on .updated {
    display: inline-block;

    .posted-on .updated:before {
    content: “Updated: “;
    time.entry-date.published {
    display: none;

    Hi there,

    Not dumb at all πŸ™‚ This is due to the latest theme update I believe.

    Try adding this CSS:

    span.posted-on {
        padding-right: 3px;

    Adding CSS: https://docs.generatepress.com/article/adding-css/

    Let me know πŸ™‚


    YAY!! Easy when you know how πŸ™‚ thank you so much for the quick reply.. Really appreciate it.
