Is there something else that needs to be set? Thanks. February 14, 2011 at 8:23 am #40487 DudeModerator Hey, in single.php and archive.php search for: the_time('d.m.Y') change the format as you like. I think in your case it would look like: the_time('F j, Y') Have a look at this page: http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/the_time for more information. November 30, 2012 at 10:04 pm #40488 GraffinisParticipant Hi Dude, I’m trying to reorder the date and this didn’t work. the_time(‘d.m.Y’) and the_time(‘F j, Y’) aren’t in the single.php and archive.php files. Is there another solution to this? Thank you, Paul December 1, 2012 at 6:54 am #40489 DudeModerator Hi! Maybe you use another theme?
