Figured some proper sleep and of course coffee and time off would fix this. I have code victory, nothing’s broken, and not only is it not broken, it works. Time and date now show up for my status posts, and date for aside posts, both are also not displaying the title. All of this is just what I wanted. Now I need to add support for the images, and I have to decide if I want to add a heading to the already-existing markup or just straight text with no decoration, or maybe something like another bit of HTML decoration. Will ponder that later on today and work on it this evening.
Welcome to Monday.
