the date say Mar 20. I want it to say Mar 20, 2020

@JeroenB Are you referring to the date shown beside the title when a single blog post is shown (as highlighted below)?

Yes. That's the one that should be changed to Mar 20, 2020.

Hi Paul,

Thank you so much for tackling this problem. It works like a charm on Chrome and Firefox, however it doesn't go quite right with Safari. The year shows up as NaN, see attachment. Tested it on desktop and mobile with the same results.

Also (and this is extra and nice to have) we noticed that on the blog page (https://www.snakegoddess.com/blog) the date format is off too, it says 03/20/20 instead of Mar 20, 2020 which is used on the other places in the website.

You're right, thanks for pointing that out. Safari doesn't parse some date formats properly. I've updated the post 😀

You are a hero! Thank you! Is it a lot of extra trouble to get the date consistent site wide? So to also change it in the /blog page? In my opinion this should be standard to begin with and it's a flaw in the squarespace 7.1 templates.

I agree Squarespace's priority is (understandably) to develop enough to make it workable and I expect they'll fix these design flaws soon.

I will follow up on your question about the other date, but it probably won't be today as I'm extremely busy.

Stay safe.

Thanks for this Paul. My client will be happy - you're a total star!

Will be interested to make the format English too when you have time ...
