[wp-hackers] the_date() vs. the_time()

the_date shows a given date ONCE through The Loop, as 'dividers' between 
days -- if it displayed already for a given day, it doesn't output anything 
on further calls.  If you want every post to have a timestamp, use the_time, 
which outputs all the time, no checks.

| Hi,
| I was wondering, what are the differences between the two for using inside
| the loop? I hade a theme that worked fine on my test server (apache 1.x, 
| 4 mac os x) with the_date() but broke on the live site (apache 2, php 5 
| linux) some dates would show, and some wouldn't/ it was the weirdest 
| after hours of debugging, i tried switching to the_time) and it works 
| anyone know why?
