How do you change the date format of the join dates and such in IPB 4?
Agree, I want it changed everywhere including for setting announcement visibility cutoff dates etc.
It's your locale which determines these things. If, for example, your locale is en_US, then the date formats will be the American type mm/dd/yyyy.
Judging by your use of CV in your sig, I'm assuming you're a Brit. Change the locale (Customization > Language) for English to en_GB (I think) and you'll get dd/mm/yyyy.
I am in Hungary, I set it for hungarian (Hungary) (magyar (Magyarország)) and it still uses the format dd/mm/yyyy, though the Hungarian format is yyyy/mm/dd.
Good point. I've just looked at a Hungarian locale and it's set up correctly. Where are you seeing this? Is it all over the site (= locale problem) or just on Calendar? If it's Calendar only, then the solution is Community > Calendar > Settings > Date format.
It is in the Forum and in the Calendar as well. In Calendar settings set to: Use Default Date Settings, but if I set it to anythying Calendar shows the same. Partly right, partly wrong.
Sorry, the format of Quote is right (post date is wrong) .
Mine is set to USA and it doesn't change the join date format or post date format.
IPB should realize that USA is not ISO standard, even the ing american military goes by 24:00 Zulu with the ISO standard lol. As an example, in the calendar you can set Date format, but not time format...
Add this to the list of things you could easily accomplish in 3.4 but apparently can't in 4.0. Someone really should come out with a mod that brings back most of the 3.4 settings and features that were left out of 4.0.
Thanks but, The plugin that topic links to, still doesn't fix the issue of join dates and older topic post dates show up like this, 30 April for April 30th, in IPB 3.4 you could customize all that easily to show up how you wanted.
What would be nice is if all the custom date / time format settings that existed in 3.4 including the join date and such were added with a plugin like that @Mark created, in the topic referred to in the topic you linked.
