Lately, I've been devoting much of my free time to developing better methods of Drupal theming to achieve streamlined processes, simplicity and minimalistic code.
In my last blog post I showed how to theme a node post date. I'll take it one step further this time and show how to do the same thing with a View. This assumes you are using the Views Module, and a use case would be if you want to display a feed of items with titles and teasers such as blog posts or news.
In this article I will show you how to theme a post date in Drupal 7. The goal is to take a boring date printed inline and theme it so it stands out as a design element.
I love it when we discover one of those wonderful Drupal gems that is not well documented and is very powerful in creating some nice Drupal Views theme customization. We were recently tasked with creating an events calendar that has a custom CCK field called "City". There's a drop down menu with a list of cities to assign the event to.
