    I’m trying to show an icon/text on new posts which are of 1 week old but it doesn’t work.

    What am I doing wrong? I have been searching for a tutorial but couldn’t find any either except this which shows for -2 years. I converted to -1 week which isn’t working.

    <?php
        $args = array(
        'post_type' => 'post',
        'post_status' => 'publish',
        'category_name' => 'whats-new',
        'posts_per_page' => 10,
    );
    $arr_posts = new WP_Query( $args );
    if ( $arr_posts->have_posts() ) :
        while ( $arr_posts->have_posts() ) :
            $arr_posts->the_post();
            ?>
            <article>
                  <div class="news">
                    <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><h4><?php the_title(); ?></h4></a>
                    <?php 
                        if( strtotime( $post->post_date ) < strtotime('-1 week') ) {
                        echo '';
                        } else {
                        echo '<span class="icon icon-new">new posts';
                        }
                    ?>
                  </div>
                </div>
            </article>
            <?php
        endwhile;
        wp_reset_postdata();
    endif;
    ?>

    Your PHP code looks good for retrieving posts with the category ‘whats-new’ and displaying them with a "NEW" icon for posts less than one week old. However, there are a couple of minor corrections you can make for better structure and readability. Also, the closing tag seems to be unnecessary and might be a typo.

    Here’s an updated version of your code:

    <?php
    $args = array(
        'post_type'      => 'post',
        'post_status'    => 'publish',
        'category_name'  => 'whats-new',
        'posts_per_page' => 10,
    );
    
    $arr_posts = new WP_Query($args);
    
    if ($arr_posts->have_posts()) :
        while ($arr_posts->have_posts()) :
            $arr_posts->the_post();
            ?>
            <article>
                <div class="news">
                    <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><h4><?php the_title(); ?></h4></a>
                    <?php
                    if (strtotime(get_the_date()) < strtotime('-1 week')) {
                        echo '';
                    } else {
                        echo '<span class="icon icon-new">NEW</span>';
                    }
                    ?>
                </div>
            </article>
            <?php
        endwhile;
        wp_reset_postdata();
    endif;
    ?>
