single_month_title()WP 0.71

Display or retrieve page title for post archive based on date.

Useful for when the template only needs to display the month and year, if either are available. The prefix does not automatically place a space between the prefix, so if there should be a space, the parameter value will need to have it at the end.

No Hooks.

Return

Usage

single_month_title( $prefix, $display );
$prefix(string)
What to display before the title.
Default: ''
$display(true|false)

Default: true
