For this website we wanted a list of event based on a CMS collection in Webflow.
In the list we wanted to print out the date, using this format, based on Swedish cultural settings:
- day month year
- 24 september 2022
So our first take was to create a simple paragraph and connect the date from the CMS using standard Webflow properties.
Doing so we got these options to format the date, promising:
I soon realize that it doesn't adopt to cultural settings and it doesn't allow me to control it further here in the property neither. We are not the first that want this feature, we have seen questions dating back to 2017. Let's hope Webflow add this feature shortly.
Solution (at least one...)
So instead of the paragraph I first created I changed to an "Embed".
Here I entered the following code.
The result is as expected and now I can use the options to customize the output as I want, plus I have the standard format as fallback using the webflow properties.
