So, I've gone through making a view called BlogPage and a content-type of BlogEntry probably ten times now. I've created both in the simplest ways I can, and I've tried to narrow down what is causing my page to look the way it does, and I think it must be my theme. I am using the Visia theme I have purchased.

Simply, I've created the view, content of type blog-entry, newest first.

I've also added: Sort Criteria: Content: Post Date(desc).

I do love the look of the blog, but the year is not listed in the date of posting. Is there any way to do this? Is this a setting I can't find? Is this being caused by my theme?

A View of my BlogPage


I've tried using the "Fields" option, but I can't find the "Date Format" option. This is the screen I have:

Change the date format in Regional and Language Settings to match your preference:


Then (assuming you are displaying fields rather than full/teaser nodes) select the date format you require from by editing the field settings in views

And specifying which of the predefined (or custom) date formats you would like to use:

  • This looks like exactly what I need, yet I've never used "Fields" and I can't seem to find this screen for "Field Settings." Sorry, I am terribly new to Drupal. Dec 11, 2014 at 16:28
  • Ok, it looks like I am on this same page now, yet I do not have a "Date Format" option under the "Create A Label" as your picture shows.. Dec 11, 2014 at 16:36
  • I've provided a screenshot of the screen I have Dec 11, 2014 at 16:41
