    In Sitefinity I am using the News Module.  Each post currently displays the date like this:
    2/16/2010
    12:46:14 PM

    I want it to be more like a blog and appear like this:
    February
    16

    I'd like to have the flexibility to add a css rule to the month and a different one to the day so I can control the appearance of each.

    How can I do this in Sitefinity? 

    I've attached a screenshot for clarity.

    Hi Troy Lawrence,

    Open the NewsView control in edit mode. Then go to Setting section(News settings) in the Basic tab. Scroll down to For every item in the news list, display:. There is a TextSetting called "Date" from where you can set the format of all items in the list. If you want to add additional formats you have to map TextSettingTemplate.ascx and change it as described in this post.

    Kind regards,
