calendar events displaying in AP Style

Jennifer Perkins 4 years ago in BLOX CMS 0

This is a feature request made by a newsroom editor for the display of events from the calendar component. She refers to the Summer Camp Fair item at the bottom of the screenshot below:


"AP Style specifies months and states of five or fewer letters should be spelled out. So in the calendar it should be March, June and July, NOT Mar, Jun and Jul.


When event occurs on the hour should be 1 p.m. Not 1:00 pm.
Only use : in time when there are minutes involved, i.e. 10:45 a.m., 2:30 p.m.
Dates are simply month followed by day: Nov. 4 or Jan. 22. Not Nov. 4th or Jan. 22nd.
Month and day should be set off from year with a comma.
So the entry I was attempting to fix would read:
Occurs from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on March 13, 2016."
