Take a look at the [a href=\"http://www.php.net/strtotime\" target=\"_blank\"]strtotime()[/a] and [a href=\"http://www.php.net/date\" target=\"_blank\"]date()[/a] functions.
[code]<?php
$blog_date = '2006-01-01 01:11:11';
$cnt = 6;
echo '(' . $cnt . ') ' . date('F Y',strtotime($blog_date)) . '<br>';
?>[/code]

That looks like a MySQL timestamp, so if it is, you should format it within MySQL. You can do this with the following: [a href=\"http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/date-and-time-functions.html\" target=\"_blank\"]http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/dat...-functions.html[/a]

Replace NOW() with the name of your date column.
