Show post Year?


(Ionuț Staicu) #1

Some of our users complained about the clarity of the post date, e.g:

Oct '14
Oct 15

It’s very easy to ignore that apostrophe…

Anywho, there is any way of showing full year?

Thanks!

I’m kinda guessing here - but I think this will do it.

Use Admin > Customize > Text Content

search for 'YY which will list:
js.dates.tiny.date_year
MMM 'YY

js.dates.medium.date_year
MMM D, 'YY

js.dates.long_date_with_year
MMM D, 'YY LT

js.dates.long_date_with_year_without_time
MMM D, 'YY

js.dates.long_date_with_year_with_linebreak
MMM D, 'YY <br/>LT

Edit and adjust those replacing 'YY with YYYY to get the full year.

Yes Sir! That works great!

I never thought of actually using that search field and I always wondered: why the hell there is a search field for only three results?! Well, I just found out why! Thanks.

Oh, very good! I suspected the Text Content feature would make this easier to implement, but I hadn’t yet realised it was already doable :slightly_smiling:
