I wasn’t happy with the default dates in Jekyll’s liquid markup. It’s been so long since I’ve messed with them, since my site has been running largely unaltered for a few years now.

The original Shopify docs have all the date formats. For this site, I changed it to:

{{ post.date | date: "%A, %d %B, %Y" }}

This renders:

Wednesday, 11 June 2014.

Incidently, I also had to remember how to escape liquid markup using raw tags, instead of being interpreted!
