     create for each language a file like /language/overrides/en-GB.override.ini containing the date format (as wished for that language). Example :
     The advantage of using those language strings is that
     1. you can customize the layout directly from the backend of Joomla via the language overrides
     2. you can have different formats according to the languages (example : Year Month Day, Day Month Year, Month Day Year, ...)
     See live example on
     NB : it is possible to add first characters of introtext with the following code :
     <p><?php echo JHTML::_('string.truncate',(strip_tags ($item->introtext)), 140); ?></p>
    defined('_JEXEC') or die;
    <div class="latestnews<?php echo $moduleclass_sfx; ?>">
    <?php foreach ($list as $item) :  ?>
    	<div class="row-alternating">
    		<div class="row-date">
    		  <div class="alternating-container-timeline">
    			<span class="alternating-category-timeline">
    			  <?php echo $item->category_title; ?>
    			<span class="alternating-day-timeline">
    			 <?php echo JHtml::_('date', $item->publish_up, JText::_('DATE_FORMAT_CALENDAR_DAY')); ?>
    			<span class="alternating-month-year-timeline">
    			  <?php echo JHtml::_('date', $item->publish_up, JText::_('DATE_FORMAT_CALENDAR_MONTH_YEAR')); ?>
    		<div class="row-content">
    		  <h4 class="row-title" itemprop="name">
    			<a href="<?php echo $item->link; ?>" itemprop="url"><?php echo $item->title; ?></a>
