De-americanise date/time (24h format, day month year) (7.84 KB, patch)
2008-12-09 05:30 UTC, Patrick

Description Yaron Koren 2007-09-20 19:52:06 UTC
Currently dates are displayed in American style (month, day, year), on both the form and the output produced by the form. There should be a way for administrators to set the format for dates - at the very least, whether month goes before the day, or vice versa. Maybe the best solution is to use the value of the $wgAmericanDates variable, which is already an optional setting in the main MediaWiki LocalSettings.php file.
Comment 1 Sergey Chernyshev 2007-09-21 15:56:45 UTC
Just a note: I remember we also discussed that this problem will be resolved by SMW when they'll start displaying Type:Date as with $wgUseDynamicDates (See SMW Bug 9620).
Comment 2 Yaron Koren 2007-09-21 22:11:27 UTC
Oh yeah, that's right. Well, this can wait.

De-americanise date/time (24h format, day month year)

This is an attempt to make SF more useful for non-Americans - my users find it unbearable to input the time in 12h format. I'm sure this could be solved much more elegantly, but it works ;)

The behaviour doesn't change for Wikis where $wgAmericanDates=true.

Thanks again for the patch. This was added in version 1.3.9.
