    Currently the time stamps, edit/delete/IP/report/ are at the bottom of everyone's post. I would like them to the top the top, and move the reply/like links over to where the edit/delete/IP/report/ currently are.

    Is this . . . . involved?

    Would that be the actual code I would need in order to place it at the top? Looking at the code I cannot see anything that places it anywhere in particular.

    Did you follow the instructions?

    I cannot see any instructions per se except you telling the OP how to get the post date. I already have that, I just want to move it from the bottom to the top. And then I want to move the post#/Like/Reply links to the bottom left where the time stamp etc. is now.

    Anyone?

    In addition to moving the posts timestamp etc I'd also like to have the current time displayed on every page at the bottom. How can I do that?

    You will need an add-on.

    For the post date, the current date, or both?

    You will need an add-on to display the time on the bottom of every page (like on vBulletin).

    An add-on isn't the answer to everything. Place it into any template you want:
    Code:
    {xen:datetime $serverTime, 'absolute'}

    Huh. If it's that easy, why isn't there by default?

    Just because its easy doesn't mean it needs to be added.

    Why do you need the time displayed at the bottom of each page by default?

    No you do not need an add-on to have this done.

    I can read Mr. Howard. He was talking about the "current time" being displayed at the bottom of every page, to which Jeremy replied a resounding "No".

    The image you showed, is the answer to the OP's original question, which again, was answered with "template edit". Nothing about needing an add-on.

    Stop the bickering and let it be.

    I don't see any bickering myself. Just clarification to avoid confusion. There was no heated discussion or anything. Sheesh.

    Who said anything about a need? "Wants" are okay too aren't they? It's what drove XF into existence. No one *needs* Xenforo, but many of us want it. The same with current time. Many of my members have requested it but even if they hadn't, I want it.

    I will try Jeremy's edit in various templates and see if that's all the info I need to implement it.
