Id like to change the date and format on each post, ideally so it shows Month, Year on the home page tiles. How can I do that?
Thank you!The blog I need help with is katherinetubbcom.wordpress.com

To change the date format on posts to remove the day, visit:
Manage > Settings > Writing
Under “Date and Time Format” – click the arrow on the right to open the panel.
Choose “Custom” and in the text field, enter:
That should look like this:
F stands for full month
Y stands for full year

Thats amazing Kathryn, thank you. One last question on this topic. If I post a blog today and want it to show a different date, how can I do that?February 24, 2020 at 4:13 pm #165000

You can back-date a post in the editor by choosing a date in the past, to modify the date displayed on the site.
Click the date to choose a date in the past:

Works a treat – thank you. Ive also noticed for anyone else reading this post, you can remove the date altogether via Content Options/Post DetailsFebruary 24, 2020 at 4:37 pm #165003

Yes, that’s another simple option if you prefer to remove the dates entirely!
