    How do I change the image for the date?

    I saw the option to make it text but I want a different image.

    Yes I am willing to make my own images.

    Does this require CSS or me to upload different images with the same name so they are used instead?

    The image for the date is part of the master sprite image. You will need to create your own image and then add some CSS rules to make the date point to that image instead. This is best accomplished using a child theme.



    I can easily make the image and add the CSS. I just need to know which folder I need to put it in through FTP. And I need to know what CSS to add.

    That is why I recommended the use of a child theme. You automatically have a folder to put such things in. If not, you will need to upload the file to the media gallery and use the link provided there.


    .post .date {background: url("path") no-repeat}



    Does the text for the date place itself on the image? Or do I make an image for every date?

    The image is just a background. WordPress adds the rest.



    Thank you very much! It works!
