Dates in french doesn't show up as it should on my website.

Hi I have a wordpress install on my droplet, the website is in french. I have an issue with the dates, they show up as “Le mars 28, 2015”, but they should show up as “le 28 mars, 2015”. Everything seems fine in WordPress

Someone told me to change the locale to french on the server, which I did but it still show up wrong.

Could it be a setting on the droplet or it’s definitely in WordPress?

It’s a one-click wordpress install and the url is

SO finally it was in Wordpress. as Zachary_DuBois thought, it was hardcoded in a plugin.

Thanks guys!!!

date.timezone is good now thanks

That’s what I was thinking, but before I changed the locale on the server, even thought my wordpress installation is in french, it was showing the dates in english so that’s why I wonder if its related to the locale. I switch them to french but am i suppose to also input the way it shows?

The setting is in WordPress. You should go to settings > general and you will see the date formatting options.
