Re:function change Date format

sure enough:

function formatTimestamp($time$format="l"$timeoffset="")


in addition to the following named date formats, $format can use any parameters the php date() function uses:

l = long date format (defined by _DATESTRING)
m = medium date format (defined by _MEDIUMDATESTRING)
s = short date format (defined by _SHORTDATESTRING)
mysql = Y-m-d H:i:s
rss = D, j M Y H:i:s T

One gotcha with the formatTimestamp function is that it will automatically display the time in the current user's timezone. If that isn't what you are looking for, I'd recommend calling the php date() function directly

PHP Date Function

Hi!! Welcome to xoops.org!!

For change the date format, just open the file language\YOUR_LANGUAGE\global.php and find this part:

define("_DATESTRING","Y/n/j G:i:s");
define("_MEDIUMDATESTRING","Y/n/j G:i");
define("_SHORTDATESTRING","Y/n/j");


Here you can change the Long Format Date, the medium format and the short format.

I hope this help you...

Sorry my bad english.

For change the date format if you have in database dd-mm-aaaa (dd-mm-yyyy)
is with these line formatTimeStamp(strtotime("15-05-2004"), "s"), formatTimeStamp only accept date in timestamp format, then we needed to turn the date to the format timestamp is what strtotime does, for greater reference see http://mx2.php.net/manual/en/function.strtotime.php, I leave for that needs it and thanks it for its aid.

Dynia - the tread is 4 years old. Many things has changed

Is it in core you want to change date format ore is it in a module?
