Change Date format for Joomla!
change date format for Joomla
How to do this using Joomla 1.5, assuming you want to change the default English:
1. Navigate to the languageen-GB folder in your Joomla install.
2. Edit the en-GB.ini file.
3. Change the date formats near the top. The parameters you see there (that is %A, %H, etc.) are replacements for the formatting of the date. The available parameters can be found in the PHP link in the above post.
An example for my particular setup, I wanted to switch to a format that looks like this for my front page articles.

I changed DATE_FORMAT_LC2 key to the parameters below to accomplish this:
DATE_FORMAT_LC2=%A, %B %d %Y
Reload the front page, and it was good to go.
