I'd like to make the Entry URL format of a channel look like this: /news/2015/06/my-slug-here

What would I need to enter into the Entry URL Format field in order to do this?

The closest I could manage was this:


But that only outputs this: /news/2015/my-slug-here

Thanks for any help.

You're close! For the month part you need postDate|date("m") (this page has the php date formats).

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't this also work? news/{postDate|date("Y/m")}/{slug} ... You'd put the slash inside the date format, so it won't have to parse postDate twice.
