Date format stuck on US???4 users found helpful
Is there any way to change this is 5.7???
may help you out
If you mean those places in the concrete5's own interface, all you need to do is to add a British English translation file which swaps out the date/time format ("n/j/Y" string).
I've attached an en_GB translation folder in this message that only contains that translation (no others). Extract that folder into your /application/languages directory.
After this you need to apply this translation to the system. There are two ways to do this:
1. System wide setting (system default, affects all users if there is no setting set for the user)
System & Settings > Basics > Languages > Default Language
2. User specific settings
- Go to Members search
- Select the user
- Change the user's language ("Language" on the right side of the page)
After one of these is done, clear the concrete5's cache.
If you meant some other place, there might be something else you need to do.
I'm not sure how well that works for 5.6, though. I stopped doing this at one point when there was a bug that made all the page dates to year 1970 if they were change when the date format was changed (since it the system still matched the US format when saving the page).
Haven't checked since whether that has been fixed but you could check it yourself and post your results here!
I tested the above in 5.7 and it worked without problems there. There have been some fundamental changes to better localization/internationalization in 5.7.
Thanks for your help. Hope this helps someone else still using 5.6.
Thank you, your suggestion for 5.7 worked for me.
I am surprised that British English is not an option at install, the UK market ought to be in Concrete5's top ten.
Is there an easy way to achieve this - like in 5.6?
