    Hey @skullmonkey,

    Thank you for reaching out to us!

    You can surely add the day of the week to your calendar.

    Please access your Dashboard and head over to Events » Settings » Display » Date without year and add the following:

    l, F j

    Don’t forget to save your changes after that. The result will be something similar to this:

    Wednesday, September 27

    If you want to format your date in a different way, you will find further information here:

    I hope this helps!

    Best regards,


    Hi Patricia,
    thanks for the tip but its not working. Saved and changed as you said but still only date.
    Anything else I can try?

    Hi @skullmonkey,

    Can you please let me know where do you want to implement this change? Since you shared the link to your month view calendar I assumed that you wanted to implement this change in the calendar tooltip (which is working as expected as I can see from here).



    Hi Patricia,
    I think this will make more clear

    The tooltip is great but I want name of the day right next to the date.

    Hi Gorast,

    I just want to drop a reminder in here that we tend to be limited in terms of how far we can support your with customization work here in the support forums. With that said, please check out our Themer’s Guide in the first place for an overview of safely overriding our templates:

    In this case, I think you’re probably going to be most interested in copying and overriding the following file:


    Good luck!
