    How can I change the date format of a DNN site?

    Currently the system default date format shows up as MM/DD/YYYY whereas i want it to be in DD/MM/YYYY instead.

    I have a ventrian news articles module currently installed on my page. It is running find except for the date format.

    Ventrian News Articles: https://github.com/ventrian/News-Articles

    Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

      As I responded on github you can change the Ventrian template https://github.com/ventrian/News-Articles/issues/49.
      If you want to change the date format of your website, you could switch the portal to en-GB (I guess you are using en-US right now)

          In News Articles you can use this token:


          (scroll all the way doen this page for more tokens)

          The XXX sould be a .NET date/time format string

          I think [PUBLISHSTARTDATE:dd MMM yyyy] should do it
