    Please see this article on how to add numbers to comments layout in WordPress.

    To change the position of meta data you will have to edit your theme files.

    How do I change the post meta data from the bottom of the post to to the top of the post and also is there a way to highlight the comments number meta data?

    How does one override the meta class data?

    It would be super helpful if the screenshots were of where in the code this would be and exactly what we’d be taking out/replacing. I use the NicheWebsiteTheme and it has both a “loop-single.php” and “loop.php” page with some code about dates…neither say published exactly, don’t know where that’s hiding as you get to choose…but also don’t know where else to look?

    I’m actually trying to change published dates to last updated as you mentioned in another post that links to this one.

    Thank you for your posts!

      The reason why we don’t specify the exact location is because it varies from theme to theme. Also some people might want to display this after the title whereas others might want to display it at the bottom of their theme. We’d recommend asking your theme author about this.

    I always referring the above one as post info, and the below one as post meta. In genesis, there’s a hook to do that easily.
