my problem is very simple but I am not familiar with PHP. My goal is to change the date format for the comments in my WordPress blog from "26th of February 2021 at 12:23" to "43 minutes ago".
I also found a code snippet that does this for me, but it doesn’t render the markup like the code which is provided by the theme itself.
This is the code provided by Astra:
printf( '<div class="ast-comment-time ast-col-lg-12"><span class="timendate"><a href="%1$s"><time datetime="%2$s">%3$s</time></a></span></div>', esc_url( get_comment_link( $comment->comment_ID ) ), esc_attr( get_comment_time( 'c' ) ), /* translators: 1: date, 2: time */ esc_html( sprintf( __( '%1$s at %2$s', 'astra' ), get_comment_date(), get_comment_time() ) ), );
This is the code I found:
printf( _x( '%1$s ago', '%2$s = human-readable time difference', 'wpdocs_textdomain' ), human_time_diff( get_comment_time( 'U' ), current_time( 'timestamp' ) );
I’d be more than happy if someone could help me with this since I don’t know where to search for a solution anymore…
Thank you all!
