The date coming out of it follows d-MMM-yyyy format, and I'd like to have yyyy-m-d, but don't know how to achieve that. The date format configured in Confluence's General Configuration has no influence over this.
Date is actually displayed differently depending on your local/language computer settings and/or internet browser language settings... (I do not remember which one but it has been confirmed by support somehow...) a user with a German windows will be displayed differently as a user with English one.
This leads to major problems when using this // formatting: see https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-33566
Hi, I run into this same issue with my customers installation. The // notation results in html5 time tag and how the time is displayed is decided by confluence when rendering the page.
Displayed format seems to be effected by system locale and chosen confluence language. And there is no way to override these as far as I know, does Atlassian have any plans to make this configurable? Or is there any workaround?
I this case the locale is fi_FI and confluence language pack is in english. This combination results in a display format which is not english or finish.
Please Atlassian, make this configurable.

Would you or anyone run into same issue and know the fix?
I found the issue in the end (for me at least)
Old versions of Confluence ignore the browser language - somewhere between 6.8.1 and 6.11 they enabled it, so after upgrade, it will use the language specified by the browser (and the country settings, English UK or US for example)
I could change the setting on all the browsers on all my machines, but then can't be bothered
On 6.11, I set the below, and then restart, to ignore the browser language.
Alternatively changing the language on the browser "should" work.
Most of us don’t need much convincing that stakeholder management is important. It just makes sense that keeping everyone in-the-know on projects and assigning clearly defined roles is key to having ...
