With the update of ghost the default theme has been updated to Casper. Overall, Casper is a very nice looking theme. But one of the things that has really been bugging me is the lack of a post date on the index page thumbnails.

Why is there no date?

It is incredibly annoying to not know when the post has been created. It means that we are unable to tell easily which posts are new and which are old. I really struggle to see the logic in removing this crucial field. Thankfully, it is very easy to add this date back in.

I have just forked the Git Casper branch and added the date. My fork can be found here.

Oh, much better! Dates are here!

Feel free to use my edited version of the theme.
