In this image, on the left is the email subscription, on the right the webpage from the #polyglots post here

I expected to see something like Wednesday, 29 March 2017, 17:00 GMT+11 which is via the [time] shortcode [time]Wednesday, March 29, 2017, 06:00 UTC[/time]. Instead there is no time and date in the email:

Seems like the easiest change is to ignore [time] and time when sending emails, but I'm open to better alternatives. Thoughts?

  • Keywords needs-patch removed

These emails are sent by Jetpack, which doesn't support custom shortcodes: https://jetpack.com/support/subscriptions/#why-are-my-shortcodes-not-rendering-correctly

Unfortunately I'm not aware of any work around for that though - @kraftbj ? (Can we get Jetpack to support the [time] shortcode maybe?)

We would need to commit it to WP.com overall (not just part of o2, where it lives now), but it is definitely something we can consider.

I think we might have some workarounds, let me take this ball and see where I can take it.
