    Is there a way to change the date format in Comments for News items? 

    Right now it's hardcoded inside the CreateChildControls method of Telerik.Cms.Engine.WebControls.CommentItem, like this:

    creationDate.ToString("d MMM, hh:mm tt"))

    And I need to make it a "d MMM HH:mm". I believe this is impossible in the current Sitefinity 3.6?

    Thanks for the product,

    Hello Dmitry Sadakov,

    I saw that the container is private, which means that it cannot be overridden. We will fix this for the upcoming SP. The hardcoded HtmlGenericControl CommentDate will be removed. We will add DataTimeLiteral control in the template. This control has property that will allow you to set the date time format.

    I hope this helps.

    Sincerely yours,
