How do you edit the time and date on your WordPress site?

Tip by ana_zdra on October 29, 2017

Sometimes the time and date settings need to be customized to reflect your (or another) timezone.

Other times the time and date are automatically taken care of for you.

But, in other cases, you may notice something totally off about the time and date. 

If you ever find yourself in such a situation, rest assured that resetting the time and date is a super easy thing to do. 

To begin, open your dashboard. And, on the left toolbar, search for “Settings” towards the bottom. 

Hover your mouse over the word “Settings” and many options will appear. Select “General” because that is where the general settings are located for time and date. 

This should redirect you to a different page. The first few text boxes pertain to the site title and tagline. But, as you scroll down, you should find what you are looking for. 

As you scroll down, you will find many options that can help you achieve the results that you are looking for, such as: 

  • Timezone
  • Date Format
  • Time Format

Just remember to Save Changes once you finish with all the customizing!
