It seems that


Appends the date in only European format (date/month), rather than using an option. It looks like the format is hardcoded in the function.

Hi there devs!

I've uploaded a patch that adds a 'optiondatesformat' parameter to the wp_list_cats() function (and consequently also to the list_cats() function which is called from wp_list_cats()). This query will take in a PHP date() function type format string (default is 'j/m' - the currently used hard-coded format).

So, as an example, you can print the list of categories like so: <?php wp_list_cats('optiondates=1&optiondatesformat=j M'); ?>

Granted, 'optiondatesformat' is a tad lengthy so another variable name may be more prudent.
