Creation date format different than others, YYYY-MM-DD, instead of DD-MM-YYY

1 year 5 months ago - 1 year 5 months ago #79167 by AlainR
Hi.

We note that the format of the creation date is different, inverted compared to the other formats of dates and I do not know how to modify it, having seen nothing in the options of the field "created".

Is this linked to the European date format?



How to fix this please? is it in the code directly? or an option I haven’t seen?
In a depublication date field, I find the field to define the format %d-%m-%Y. Indeed, there is a "Edit" tab that is not in the field "created"...
I also went to look in the type, but you can only change the label and the two description fields

Many thanks in advance for your help

Thank you for your answer but I don't understand what you mean.
What do you mean with "check global config of your site" ? where can I find that ?

In J! configuration, I can’t find any parameters concerning the format of the dates.
In the articles options, I find no option concerning the format of the dates either, just the possibility to choose between the date of creation, modification or publication.

Finally, in the FC options, I cannot find an option regarding the format of the creation date. Only the possibility of formatting the publication date or even depublication, when I create the ad hoc field since they are not core fields, as described in my first post.

Hello

This is forced inside
item.xml file

so that the format will come from the language file (LL-CC.ini) of the current language
DATE_FORMAT_CALENDAR_DATE="%Y-%m-%d"
DATE_FORMAT_CALENDAR_DATETIME="%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S"

which can be overridden in Joomla Configuration for language overrides

i will check that no issues occur, and will remove the forcing of format if we do not have code that depends on the format, we do not want to add some new bug in v3.3.n now

Hello

i have found that saving in custom format the dates
created
modified
publish_up
publish_down

i tested Joomla article form without flexicontent installed and the bug is there too

so i will change publish_up and publish_down to be also
%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S

this way there will be consistency in the publishing dates and no bugus saving destroying the dates

Updated version is here:
github.com/FLEXIcontent/flexicontent-cck/archive/3.3.n.zip
you can use install via URL (Joomla installer) to install it

Thanks for report

Hello.
Thank you for your answer and update.

Hello


When use are using the date field to display publish up
- the field configuration is used only for displaying purposes !!
- the formatting parameter for item form are not used

Instead the publish up field is created via its settings inside the item.xml

the change i made was to force (inside item.xml) the format to be always
format="%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S"

for date form fields:
- publish_up
- publish_down

otherwise the fields will not save properly (so the fix was to make sure fields are always saved without data loss)
if i remember i tested with native Joomla article form, if i try to use other custom format inside XML file (or custom format via changing the language string) then the dates are not saved properly
