I see that theres no way to get a formatted date from a function like
echo get_the_date($post->ID, 'd M Y');
get_the_date only works with the current
$post. If I used
get_posts() how can I format the date. With pure PHP I can do something like ...
echo DateTime::createFromFormat('Y-m-d h:i:s', $cp->post_date)->format('d M Y');
but its abit long, and I don't know if there's a need to actually create a
DateTime object, perhaps its a waste of resources?
