    How do I change the Monthly Archive listing? (shorten the month names - instead of having September 2005, October 2005, I would like to show Sept 2005, Oct 2005 etc)

    Using 1.5

    Thank you

    You could modify "The Months" in locale.php (wp-includes/ directory), but keep in mind this affects all elements of WordPress that displays a month's name.

    Only adverse effect would be when you upgrade wordpress -- this file may be overwritten. Make sure to save a copy of your changes so you can update the new locale.php if there ever is one.
