Customize Date Output

Hi there,

Searched without successful answer.

I’m wondering what would be the best way to customize the date tag so it outputs the full name of the month? ex. 12th March 2017

<?php echo $page->date('d / m / Y') ?>

any advice would be wonderful.


By default the PHP date function handles date formatting in Kirby. You can see all the available formats on the PHP manual:

In your case it would be:

<?php echo $page->date('jS F Y') ?>

This works well for English alone. If you need it for a multilingual site, use the strftime date handler and check out the manual for that on the PHP site too.

lovley very helpful.
thank you pedroborges!
