HowTo: Pods, format the post_date in a template

The „magic“ @{post_date} returns the date as defined in the wp settings. To display the date for example as „Jan 2017“ you can define in functions.php function my_datum($input_date) {
return date_i18n("M Y", strtotime($input_date));
}

and in the desired template use @{post_date,my_datum}
