Is there any code I can change in C5 that will let me display dates as d-m-y instead of m-d-y?
<?php $date = Loader::helper("date"); echo $date->getLocalDateTime('now',$mask = 'd-m-Y') ?>
You can also define date and time in site.php to override defaults by changing the php date/time values in the statements, some of the ones you can change are:
define('DATE_APP_GENERIC_MDYT_FULL', 'F d, Y \a\t g:i A');
However, changing the format does not seem to be affecting the site so far. See also.
