Joomla 1.6 – How to Fix “Published on %s”

Joomla 1.6 Help – I changed the date options in the List Layout in Article Manager to show the “Published Date” instead of the Create date.  When I refreshed my website I got some weird wording for the one of the headings.  I’m assuming from the wording that Joomla wants to display the date as well in the heading, which is unnecessary.

Title         Published on %s         Author Hits
Apples   11-05-11                       Written by Super User 10
Pears      11-05 -11                       Written by Super User 13

To fix this on your Joomla 1.6 website, follow the steps below:

1.  Login to your Joomla 1.6 FTP server or webhosting file manager.

2.  Go to your folder –  ../language/en-GB

3.  Edit the file – en-GB.com_content.ini


5.  Set COM_CONTENT_PUBLISHED_DATE=”Published Date”.

After you save the file and refresh your website you will see the new title.

Hope that helps,
