Problem in Date Published in OJS 3.0.2 and Manuscript theme


I’m working on OJS 3.0.2 and with thema “Manuscript”.

I’ve made some modifications to an article (I’ve added the XML format) and have rescheduled the posting date to show the original date.

But this problem appears:

1.- The date of publication of the article (2016/12/29) is not the same in the “index” page as the “page view” (2017/02/28).

View date in “page index”:

View date in “page view”:

I would be very grateful for any help.

Where else could I find an answer?

Thank you very much for the help!
