Rewiring the stream dates and embed system
The Stream steals the show again in the latest version of Marketers Delight 5.2! One of the many important improvements coming to the Stream is an update to the Date and Embed systems in Stream posts.
Using Dates in WordPress has always been inconsistent and thanks to the great work done in WordPress 5.3, we now have a far more reliable to way to grab an accurate date.

Thread Item 2
This thread item is a simple status with image overlay.

Adding a stream later
Watch as this Stream thread unfolds, you will see the published date of each thread item down to the second!
