Ghost-Admin: Publish Date in post settings not localised #10767

Issue Summary

The format of the date in the 'publish date' field in post settings is in US English, i.e. 'MM/DD/YYYY'. This is confusing for anyone in a non-American English location, where 'DD/MM/YYYY' is the conventional date format.

To Reproduce

  1. Open 'settings' tab on an existing post
  2. 'Publish date' is set to MM/DD/YYYY

Technical details:

  • Ghost Version: 2.22.0
  • Node Version: 8.12.0
  • Browser/OS: Any
  • Database: Any

The use of the date format 'MM/DD/YYYY' is confusing to those not in American English locations. In the absence of being able to dynamically determine full locale data, using 'YYYY-MM-DD' seems to the least ambiguous date format which would be intuitive to most users.
