Joomla follows this type of date format : http://docs.joomla.org/How_do_you_change_the_date_format%3F

In php date format look like : http://php.net/manual/en/function.date.php

For your solution you have to write manually on templates\shaper_pocha\html\com_content\featured\default_item.php

Find in the beginning :
$date_format 	= JHTML::_('date',$this->item->created, JText::_('DATE_FORMAT_LC3'));

and replace the DATE_FORMAT_LC3 manually.

$date_format 	= JHTML::_('date',$this->item->created, JText::_('d M'));

Hope it will work.

My question is almost the same, but it is for K2 blog template(express-blog) in the template Sharper Express.

When I use your beautiful k2 template - express -blog, my date in the list category items is not translated to my language. When I switch to the default K2 template, the date is translated , but the beautiful date blog is lost.
So can you help me when I must correct to fix this issue?

I saw that there is the differences between you express-blog template and the default, when you call catItemDateCreated

Express- blog
<?php if($this->item->params->get('catItemDateCreated')): ?>
<!-- Date created -->
<div class="blog-date">
$date_format = JHTML::_('date', $this->item->created, JText::_('DATE_FORMAT_LC4'));
$date_display = explode("-",$date_format);
$format_date = date("d-M-Y", @mktime(0, 0, 0, $date_display[1], $date_display[2], $date_display[0]));
$final_date = explode("-",$format_date);
$output = "<span class='sp_date_day'>".$final_date[0]."</span><span class='sp_date_month'>".$final_date[1]."</span>";
echo $output;
<?php endif; ?>

Default remplate
<?php if($this->item->params->get('catItemDateCreated')): ?>
<!-- Date created -->
<span class="catItemDateCreated">
<?php echo JHTML::_('date', $this->item->created , JText::_('K2_DATE_FORMAT_LC2')); ?>
<?php endif; ?>

Hello , here I attach two pictures. You can see on picture1.png that the blog dates are not translated.

The second picture - picture2, which I attached is showing on the same site the module New Shows SP2 module, which is with translated dates.

I wanted to show you that I have needed language translations.
