    Hi

    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!
    Katherine.

    The blog I need help with is katherinetubbcom.wordpress.com

    Hi Katherine,

    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:

    F, Y

    That should look like this:

    Site Settings KP Main Test site WordPress com Mozilla Firefox

    F stands for full month
    Y stands for full year

    Also just a heads-up that since your site has a Premium/Business plan, you’re entitled to live-chat and email support, accessible here:

    https://wordpress.com/help/contact

    You’re welcome to still post in these forums, but those other support avenues may be faster, and you’ll always get a staff reply.

    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?

    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:

    Let me know if this achieves what you’re after!

    Works a treat – thank you. Ive also noticed for anyone else reading this post, you can remove the date altogether via Content Options/Post Details

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

    I’ll mark this thread as resolved for now, but feel free to start another – or to contact us through live chat – if we can help with anything else.
