Change date format on Newsworthy theme.

  1. Hello, I just wondered if it was possible to change the way the date is displayed in the yellow box next to each post on the "Newsworthy" theme? I have gone into settings and changed the date format there but it doesn't affect this. As I am in England I would prefer to have the date as DD/MM/YYYY rather than MM/DD/YYYY if possible?

    Thanks,
    Matt Lockey

  2. I just checked in my test site and you are right. Even when the date is set to European date format, they continue to display MM/DD/YYYY on the site.

    This date display format does seem to be hardwired into the theme, but I will tag this for Theme Staff reply.

  3. Hi there,

    Thank you for the report. I've opened a ticket to see about getting this fixed. I'll update you once that's done.

    Best, Michael

    Unfortunately this is a theme feature

  6. Hi,

    It is possible to change the data format.

    Open the file:
    public_html/blog/wp-content/themes/newsworthy/content.php

    Look at line 4:
    get_the_date('m.d.y')

    I changed it to:
    get_the_date('d-M-Y')

    The format for date's can be found on: http://php.net/manual/en/function.date.php

  7. It is possible to change the data format.

    Open the file:
    public_html/blog/wp-content/themes/newsworthy/content.php

    @nblank - WordPress.com users do not have access to the underlying PHP files in order to do this. For clarity: http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

  8. Hi Jennifer,

    Thats to bad. I have the site hosted on my own domain. That way I can upload the files myself and make some customizations in the code.

    Greetings, Nanno
