Make Kubrick use the blog's default date format, not "F jS, Y"

    In Options -> General it is possible to set the "default date format" and "default time format" to be displayed on your blog. However, Kubrick ignores these values and instead uses the_time('F jS, Y') for the post date. This means a user might change their date or time format and wonder why it is having no affect on their blog.

    I propose a minor change to the Kubrick theme bundled with WP, so the_date() and the_time() are used without parameters, thus using the default date and time formats set in Options.

    This might also affect the Classic theme, but I don't have the theme source to hand to check.

    Better yet, why not add a default timestamp for each theme, and allow for them to be changed independently of each-other. It seems very do-able to me, and would be a much more generic solution.

    Agree that this is a good change for a theme bundled with WP.

    Yes. It is highly annoying to scan php scripts for dates.
    Not everyone is capable of doing that.

    I agree.
    I blog in Hebrew and every template needs to be manually fitted and translated to Hebrew. The date format setting should really always be WP's settings, because few people really know how to set date formats in templates.
    It should be done on Kubric, but theme designers' awareness should be raised about this issue, as well. It's a shame to have the option to set the date in the Admin when the template completely cancels it out.

    This idea is scheduled to be implemented in 2.2.

    +1 Shouldn't even be a question about this.
