I'm wondering how to format the post date that displays on all of my posts. Not style it per se, but actually rearrange how it looks (and the styling will come later). For instance, my dates are currently displayed as "Month, day, year" but I want to get them to look like
day MONTH year
Basically, I'm trying to get my post dates to look like the "box calendar" style on many blogs. I did find the Codex page on formatting the post date and time, but uh, when I copied one of the examples into my functions.php to try it out it ended up breaking my site. I'm still not too familiar with php and messing around with the functions.php file. Thanks!
