Two dates showing on blog post summary page

Go to solution Solved by tuanphan,

Recommended Posts

Hello, I've got an issue where two dates are showing on my blog summary page, below the picture and above the title (image below).

While I've read the article on how to change blog dates and been deep in the settings, I still cannot for the life of me figure out how to stop this happening.

I'd ideally like to have one date there, just not two, does anyone know how to fix this? My Squarespace version is 7.1 (if displaying just one date is not possible, how do I remove it from displaying a date at all?).

Thanks team!

Hi @tuanphan I am getting 2 different date formats for 2 different blog posts on the blog posts list, I refreshed the date to display but then it goes back to incorrect format. The one #NSBCS.002 from today 2nd november 2023 displays as 11/02/2023 on the blog list but correctly on the blog post. the #NSBCS.001 is fine as 26/10/2023. Very strange!

I can see the pub date is showing incorrectly for #NSBCS.002 but how to change that?

I need both posts in the blog list to look like dd/mm/yyyy not mm/dd/yyyy.

I did insert this code in the code section but this fixed the blog post dates maybe it's causing issues for the date on blog post list now.

<!-- Fix inconsistent blog date format on Squarespace 7.1 template -->

<script src="https://stevenlevithan.com/assets/misc/date.format.js"></script>
<script>
        (function(){
        document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', function() {
            const dateformat = "dd/mm/yyyy";
            const pubdates = document.querySelectorAll("time[datetime]:not([class*=event-time]), time[pubdate], time.blog-meta-item--date");
            pubdates.forEach(pubDate => {
                let d = new Date(pubDate.getAttribute("datetime") || pubDate.innerText);
                if (pubDate.classList.contains('blog-meta-item--date') ) {
                    d = new Date(document.querySelector('[itemprop="datePublished"]').getAttribute('content').split("T")[0]);
                }
                pubDate.innerHTML = d.format(dateformat); 
            });
        });
    })();
</script>

 

Please help thanks

The code has been updated since the last time you use it, could you give this a try?
