Hmmm, I don't see anything out of the ordinary - if Date is the actual fieldname defined in the NewsArticle (?) class.

The only thing I can think of now is that that fieldname (Date) might somehow conflict with something. What if you'd name it, say, DatePosted? I realize it's a long shot, but I remember seeing something like this before...

OK, so:

- you made sure the Date field on the productionsite in the DB actually had a date in it
- you did dev/build?flush=1 after changing the fieldname Date to ArticleDate
- you made sure the new ArticleDate field in the DB actually had a date in it
- you did ?flush=1 after every template change
- the date actually is visible in the CMS field for the page

Then there really isn't much else I can think of from here :( Wonder what this does:

public function LatestNews($num=5) {
	$holder = ArticleHolder::get()->First();
	$pages = ($holder) ? ArticlePage::get()->filter('ParentID', $holder->ID)->sort('Date DESC')->limit($num) : false;

	if ($pages) foreach ($pages as $page) echo "*** {$page->Title},  {$page->Date} ***<br>";

	return $pages;

Sorry for late reply. Have been on holidays...

I used that code and the date shows correctly:

*** Chronically tight muscles stop sending pain signals, 2013-10-02 ***
*** Massage this Long Weekend?, 2013-09-24 ***
*** Pathology Testing, 2013-09-11 ***

How do I now get $page->Date to display on the page and RSS feed? Have tried $Date and $Date.Nice but doesn't work.

Thanks :)
