If you look at the Seasoned Advice blog main page, each article shows a date:

However, the administrative interface is set to use ISO dates:

admin interface showing Y-m-d format

The US-specific format is confusing, as Europeans write day-month-year instead of month-day-year. It has confused at least Szabolcs. Unfortunately, it seems that its hardcoded somewhere.

Please make the article date display respect the setting in the admin interface.

  • @TimStone maybe it happened when they switched us off sketchy? Not sure. – derobert Jun 13 '12 at 19:53
  • Seems like a likely explanation. Certainly confusing though, hopefully it'll get patched up quickly. – Tim Stone Jun 13 '12 at 19:58

    Can't we just have the first? That way it is clear to everybody. – user184498 Jun 13 '12 at 20:19
  • The first is clear, @BryanDunsmore, but also a bit awkward to read. I'd prefer "13th June, 2012", which better matches my speech patterns. (It doesn't match them perfectly: I'd say the thirteenth of June, 2012, but I'm happy that speech and writing diverge in this area.) – TRiG Apr 30 '14 at 16:07

The format for the date was hard-coded instead of pulling from the setting. This has been changed and should display as Y-m-d (per the setting) from now on (once the cache clears up).
