I'm grabbing the date from a post object
$post->post_date and I want to format it. I know you can format a date object as shown here Since I'm not that familiar with WP I don't know how the date that I'm grabbing from my post relates to the date object that takes parameters which allow it to be formatted.
This is the code that I'm working with that I would like to format:
echo '<a>' . $recent["post_title"].'<br />'. $recent["post_date"].'<br />'.$recent["post_excerpt"].'</a> ';
Thanks for the help!
