Support » Fixing WordPress » Date format problem

  • Resolved Thort



    Nothing happens when changing the date format under Options > General.

    When running the “WordPress Default 1.5” theme I can’t change the date format. But, I have found a theme called “Simple Green”. Using this theme I can change the date format. Peculiar!

    I’m running WordPress 2.0 on a local Apache server.

  • This might be controlled by how your Theme is making use of the Template Tag the_date.

    See also: the_time.

    Thanks MichaelH !

    I did a change in the “WordPress Default 1.5” theme. In index.php I changed,

    <?php the_time('F jS, Y') ?>


    <?php the_date(); ?> - <?php the_time(); ?>

    Now my date settings in Options > General take effect.

    Thanks for your guidance! 🙂

    The default theme should do this. It feels completely “broken” for the default theme to not honor the date and time formatting preferences.
