time and date format

    Can any one tell me how to set the date and time format?

    Please, don’t tell me to read the support page….it is confusing.

    Just tell me what I should do to see on my posts this type of date and time:

    << Sunday, January 1, 2011 2:30pm (GMT+3)>>

    I won’t just this format.

    Thanx in advance for your help.

    My blog:http://danielberhane.wordpress.com

    The blog I need help with is danielberhane.wordpress.com.


    Correction: (I meant) I want just this format.



    I’m sorry but we Volunteers do not have backend access to blogs and we can’t do this for you. Therefore you must follow the instructions provided in the support documentation under General Settings > Settings > General



    Dashboard -> Settings

    Select custom. Delete and put ‘r’ in the box.

    That will give you the date and time in the following format: Thu, 21 Dec 2000 16:01:07 +0200

    I believe that is as close as you’ll be able to get to the format you want on wordpress.com since you can’t modify the PHP calls directly.


    @timethief and stacked

    it could be GMT +3 UTC +3 or any equivalent of that.

    If that is not possible, forget that part.

    Assume it is your blog and what would you do to get a time and date format like this:
    the weekday, the month, the date number, the year PLUS the hour.

    Give me the code I should put on my General Setting.
    On date format and Time format options.


    Thanx. Stack.
    I simply put: ‘r’ and I got this: Fri, 30 Sep 2011 22:52:04 +0000

    But no way, to make the last part +0300 ?

    Otherwise, I want to remove the “+0000” part…


    I was able to get this: Friday, September 30, 2011 @ 2:10 am

    With this code: l, F j, Y @ g:i a

    I still wish to be able to indicate the time zone.



    Did you choose a city in the drop-down provided that’s the closet one to you and in the same time zone? I did and that worked for me.

    Settings > General

    Choose a city in the same timezone as you.
