You can still check out the tag index though.

What are tags?

I've noticed that the dates of posts are displayed in an odd way. For example:

Jan20111 2323, 0909:0101

I assume this means Jan 23, 2011, 09:01.

Can something be done to fix the date displays into something more readable and appealing?

Thanks

Hmm....interesting. I just checked Chrome, Firefox, and IE and the dates look fine to me in all three browsers.

Well, hopefully someone from Bootsnall will chime in soon.

For those that have funky looking dates, have you tried changing the date settings in your profile?
Click on your profile link, then 'Board Preferences' and at the bottom is a date format setting. You can choose from several that are ready to go or create your own using a slightly confusing syntax :)

Let me know if this does not correct the issue for you.
