How to Change the Date From Custom Custom Field in Wordpress

Learn how to change the date in WordPress by custom field or meta field.

Hi πŸ‘‹

we will use WordPress get_the_date() Hook.

I will explain both. If you have created meta field for date post_custom_date. OR using ACF created field with name post_custom_date.

Inspiration

When I was developing the site with Divi theme there is a custom post listing module but I don’t want the date of publishing post instead i want my custom date which I have created with ACF.

So I have searched and found this solution Enjoy. πŸŽ‰

Put this code in functions.php file.

For custom meta Without Acf

<?php
    /**
    * @here 10 is Priority and 3 is Number of arguments to be passed
    */
    add_action( 'get_the_date','custom_date_callback', 10 , 3 );
    function custom_date_callback( $the_date, $format, $post ){
        if( get_post_type() === "custom_post_type" && is_singuler("custom_post_type") ){
            $date =  sprintf( esc_html( get_post_meta('post_custom_date', $post->ID) ) );
            return $date;
        }
    }
?>
