  • Hi,

    We understand you want to show a shortened month for your WordPress date archive pages. WordPress by default outputs the full month.

    The only way to force WordPress to show a different format is to use our template variable filter here to develop a shorten month variable.

    You can then take this variable and go to SEO-Search Appearance-Archives and click on the Date Archive Settings page and remove the Date template variable. Then add in the new custom one.

    Unfortunately, there’s a difference between the support we can offer and the level of programming needed to change (core) features of our plugin. Since we don’t want to take the risk that we break your website by suggesting incorrect or incomplete code, we cannot advise you on how to make such changes. And even though we cannot be of any assistance, you’re completely free to change anything in the plugin to better suit your needs.

    We highly recommend checking out our list of Yoast Partners here in case you are in need of development.

    We will also keep this issue open for 1 week in case someone from the community can help. Perhaps a developer watching these forums can assist further. After which, we will close in order to keep the overview.

    Thankyou, can you please remove or hide my website link? I don’t want to show to the public.

    The link doesn’t show to the public. That’s why it’s a separate field. You have to be logged into these forums to see it, thus, search engines don’t see it

    Hi @chbary,

    As the link is not shown for the public but only for logged-in users, there is no harm in having the link up there. Apart from that, the forums here on only allows for changes to your reply/topic in the first hour after submitting it. You can find more details on this in the forums FAQ or guidelines.
