If we set a custom permalink of


archive pages will be


If we want european/asian/african/southamerican D/M/Y date format


archive pages will be


US format but doesn't matter, at least it works

but with this permalink:


archive pages (at least on archive widget) will be


Which looks good

But returns 404 with default wp and theme and WP 5.1.1 or 5.2
tried to go to /2019/05/ but 404 too

I have tried with 4.1 and the bug was already there

If we put %day% before %monthnum% and %year% it will always break

this is broken too:

But weird permalinks like


will give working archives

even /%day%/%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%/

Who's against D/M/Y and M/D/Y raise hands
