More CMS date formats and in different languages

I know that I can display the date of the CMS post using the European style DD/MM/YYY but I would like to be able to use the name of the month or the day of the week in my language.

Also, in this formatting : DD MMM YYYY (18 Jan 2017) or DD MMMM YYYY (18 January 2017)

    2017... 2018... 2019... 2020... 2021... 2022... 2023... 2024...
    The team are setting the priority correctly?

    I'm new to Webflow trying it out as successor of using Wordpress. But I'm highly astonished, date/time localization is not supported. So the product has no production grade capabilities outside the US :-(.

    Damn, 6 years and still waiting. We know that webflow is a US company, but a few of your users live outside the US where mm/dd/yyyy or mmm d, yyyy isn't standard.
    You have "d mmm" and "mmm yyyy" but no "d mmm yyyy". Why?
    Even better why not allow users to customise the date format using these elements?

    holy molly – it's been 5 years and still no possibillity to localize dates?

    Yes, can we please have the format "dd mmm yyyy"? The USA is the only country in the world to use "mmm dd, yyyy"! Please stop making us have to do a bunch of crazy formatting to get "dd mmm yyyy".

    Crazy this isn't implemented yet!

    I'd also like the following format please (which which is more typical in the UK):

    "26 August, 2022"

    Note that's with the comma before the year, same the current American version available, just with day first: "August 26, 2022".

    It's possible to hack it of course, using text blocks and the currents available formats, but then you end up with issues like the attached screenshot of Safari Reader View, and similar issues for people using screen readers.

    Insane that this hasn't been implemented yet. Webflow, you talk about accessibility all day long yet you're missing this SIMPLE ass feature? Maybe back up your talk with the basic implementations first, before focusing on the fancy stuff. Jeez.

    It's these small things that makes Webflow difficult to work with...

    Could you add custom date format where we can describe what we need (eg: like PHP date function: Y.m.d. in hungarian format)? It would be wonderful if we could add translation for the list of months and days, so it could be displayed on any language perfectly.

    Also add YYYYMMDD and YYYY/MM/DD.

    I'm shocked this still hasn't been implemented. Same with the date format and Sunday being the firts day of the week—this should all be customisable for users outside the US.

    Please add UTC iso 8601 format - while this might not be great for people it's great for creating JSON-LD metadata to help with enhanced google listings and integrating with analytics platforms.

    Would be nice to have "Today" as current day. Auj. Aujourd'hui. in Fench.


    Also : european formats like 03/02/2020 (3 of february)

    Why does this feature take so long. Dates are sich common things to have on a website. Even for English the existing isn't comprehensive. Terribly missing DD MMMM YYYY which is used all the time in the UK.
