Mason Theme: Date on blog is always showing May 5th

Hieu May 21, 2014 12:21AM EDT

As much as I'd for it to always be Cinco de Mayo, it's strange that my blog posts always show up as May 05. Is this a bug or something I'm doing wrong on my end?

Hi Hieu,

Looking at your site, the first 4 posts on your blog show May 05, but the last one shows March 03. What are the actual post dates for the first 4 posts? You can find this info in the Publish box in the upper right (where the Publish/Update button is), when editing the posts. The ‘Published On’ date is the date used on the blog.

The first post was actually published on March 20, so I think the number is indicating the month [March being the 3rd month, hence 03 and May being 05]. Just tested this with a post dated January 25, 2013 and it shows as January 01:

It's not stuck on May 5th, it's just showing the month twice.

The format of the date, i.e. how it’s shown, is controlled by the values you enter in the Date Format field in the theme options (Theme Options→Blog→Post Headers tab). For the dates to be appearing the way they are, it would mean you have that option set to display the month in two different formats (like: F m) , instead of the Month and Day (F d). There is a link in the description of that field that will take you to a page with all of the acceptable characters you can use to structure the date. Just enter the characters that represent how you want the date to be displayed.. i.e. January 01, 2014 would be : F d, Y Jan 1, 14 would be: M j, y etc.
