Thoughts, about stuff

Display the year of publication for a Spaces blog post

with 7 comments

One of the things that has irked me (and I’m being polite) about Windows Live Spaces since I started using it nearly three years ago is that only the day and month of a blog entry’s publication date gets displayed, the year is not as you can see here:

image Well today I found out, happily, that that need not be the case. It is possible to configure your Live Space to display the year as well.

All you need to do is head for http://<space-id&gt;.spaces.live.com/Options/General/ (mine would be http://jamiethomson.spaces.live.com/Options/General/) where you can set the date format to include the year as well:

image Perfect! Now all my blog entries have got the date on them and I am a much happier (easter) bunny.

  5. Nice helpful post, Jamie. Now if only they’d provide an option to display a long date format (e.g., Wednesday, April 15, 2009), as well as others, maybe they could make everyone happy. Date formatting options are not exactly rocket science, WL team.
