LiveJournal Date and Time Formats

For whatever reason, I always have a total bitch of a time locating this info when I need it! I'm sure that's amazingly stupid of me, but whatever...

So after spending around 20 minutes hunting (and hunting), I again found the area that lists the Date and Time formats here at LJ.

So, here's the LINK!

Why does it matter?

Well, if you have a layout that supports changes, then you can type in the appropriate code according to what you want to see.

And, you know, I'm not sure why LiveJournal thinks anyone wants their DATE to display this way:
Aug. 27th, 2007

Personally, I quit adding the 'th' and 'rd' to a numerial date back in grade school. But that seems to be the default at LJ. Does any office in the world use that dating format? I've certainly never worked in one that did!

Sure, many places don't use the American version of Month Day (comma) Year: August 27, 2007 -- preferring Day Month (comma - or not) Year: 27 August, 2007. Still, when do we normally see either of these: August 27th, 2007 =OR= 27th August, 2007???

Okay, so maybe it's bitchy of me to note that -- I don't know. But when you're trying to change this default, I want the info right at my fingertips!

Has anyone else tried using the FAQ Search Engine here at LiveJournal?

Frankly, I never find a damn thing when I try that... (sigh)

What keyword (or words) would YOU search on to find the date and/or time format, for example?

Go -- give it a try. I'm dying to know if I'm simply doing it wrong, or what. (smile)


Anyway, now I'll have this link to refer to -- thank God!!!

I used this to make some 'tweaks' at a community I help moderate. It turned out great, by the way!

Go, me!
