How can I translate with the date output format like this: AUG 2020 with php wp or my wordpress site is currently using the polylang plugin. Please help me, thank you.

  • Can you show us the code that's generating the date? I'd expect Polylang to set the PHP locale so PHP-generated dates would just be correct, so it's probably something else, but I don't know the plugin.

  • Hello @Rup. Here is the code that shows the date in post <?php echo get_the_date('M Y');?>. I am using this plugin: wordpress.org/plugins/polylang

You can set translation of date/time format from here while Polylang plugin was actived:

dashboard menu -> Languages -> Strings translations

for example:

  • for date_format English translation: m/d/Y
  • for date_format Chinese translation: Y年n月j日
  • Thank you so much.
