I have an installation of Wordpress 3.6 running on my server. Playing around with it, I found that 'status updates' don't show the time posted:

Here's the thing: I want the time there too. Something like this would be best:

Is there a way to change the format the time is shown in? Something in a child theme?


Just go to Settings > General, scroll down to the date formatting section, select custom, and type this:

F jS, g:i a

which yields a date like:

June 1st, 7:29 pm

The official WordPress docs give the letters to use for time formatting.
