This particular option can be found by logging into your site's admin area and going to:
"ProPhoto" > "Customize" > "Content" > "Post/Page Header"

The normal post date option allows you to select the position of date/time information in your Post header. You also have options for showing the post time of day with the date, options to set a specific display format for your date, and options for the alignment of your date within the post header area.

Date display format

Use the dropbox to select a date display format that suits your needs. If you do not see a format that you like, or if you would like to use special characters to separate your day, month, and year, you can use the “custom…” format option. Click the link within the settings box to learn more about the options for custom date formatting.

Advanced features

You can also use the advanced features area found down the settings screen in ProPhoto to further customize your date when using the “normal” display. Click here for more info.

Boxy date display:

The “Boxy style” date option is another method of displaying your post dates. This setting displays your post date in a vertically stacked: 3-character abbreviated month, 2-digit day, 4-digit year format. The result is your dates appearing in a nice square package. You can choose individual colors for the month, day, or year, and you can choose to add a unique background color to the date box to help it stand out. When setting the “relative font size”, you are actually setting the size in pixels of the month text. The day and year text will always scale in proportion to the month, keeping the date’s overall boxy appearance.

The default “Grunge” design uses a creative combination of the boxy date display and a post background image to place a cool, black spatter underneath each post date.
