Format of date is hardcoded
Closed, DuplicatePublic


The format of the date is non ISO-compliant and is NA-centri, being "D, M j *" where * is the only customizable part. This is an inefficient and NA-centric date model. It should be either fully customizable by users, or it should be ISO-compliant.

My attempts are adopting the default iso compliant php date option return things like "Fri, Oct 31, 2014-10-31T11:59:29+00:00".

The settings on that page, as detailed in this bug, only control part of the date. The "D, M j" part (as in, Mon, Nov 24) are hardcoded and the customizable part gets appended to those. In effect, they only regulate time rather than date.
