Cannot customize date format with on article page #552

Since I've pinpointed the exact code that causes this, I will skip supplying debugging info.

The code <time itemprop="dateCreated" datetime="{{ }}">{{'%b') }} {{ day }} {{-', %Y') }}</time> on line 118 of article.html hardcodes the date format when displaying an article. I think this should be changed to allow the end user to customize this format via, e.g. by adding a BRIEF_DATE_FORMAT option. Thoughts?

I noticed that in all other places, we use article.locale_date.

Only inside, Published section, the date format is hard-coded. At the time of writing, it was a feature.

But I understand some users would want to customize it.

I think, replacing

{{'%b') }} {{ day }} {{-', %Y') }}


{{ article.locale_date }}

should be enough, and we do not need to add new variable.
