Genesis Post Info

Genesis themes include a “Post Info” feature for displaying information at the top of your post. This commonly includes the post date, author, and number of comments.

You can use the genesis_post_info¬†filter to customize what appears here. Here’s a list of all the Genesis shortcodes you can include.

If you’re not comfortable editing code, you can also use the Genesis Simple Edits plugin to make these changes within your WordPress backend.

 * Modify Post Info
 * @author Bill Erickson
 * @link
 * @param string original post info
 * @return string modified post info 
function be_post_info_filter($post_info) {
	$post_info = '[post_date] by [post_author_posts_link] at [post_time] [post_comments] [post_edit]';
	return $post_info;
add_filter('genesis_post_info', 'be_post_info_filter');
