Format a date using the correct language in WordPress

Stanislav KhromovStanislav Khromov

To format a date and have it output the time in the language which is configured in WordPress, use the date_i18n function.

It uses the same parameters as date().



date('j F', time());


date_i18n('j F', time());

    Thank you, I fixed my date language problem thanks to your article.

    Btw, I would like to ask another question about language. How could I fix these words =>”by, on, comments”?

    Do you have any language trick or must I fix manually?

    Best regards,
