I made a temporary patch to get parsable dates (786 bytes, patch)
2009-01-19 21:07 UTC, DaSch

Description DaSch 2009-01-19 13:36:41 UTC
The Dateoutput that is now given from #ask when querying for a date is not readable by the Parserfunction #time
#time is using the PHP strtotime() function, so the problem is the output of SMW

Comment 2 Markus Krötzsch 2009-01-20 08:53:24 UTC
I change the contents of this feature request as follows: Type:Date should have an option to select an output format in inline queries (and #show) that conforms to the ISO date specification.

The original request, that ''all'' Type:date outputs should be understood by #time is (at best) a bug for #time. It cannot be the goal of SMW to constrict its date support to the limitations of #time. SMW's dates now cover a far larger range (outside of Unix time) and support international date formatting. So it won't be possible, in general, to have #time support all dates that are available in SMW, due to the limitations of strtotime(). It would still be good to have an option to get ISO conformant output.

Changing this bug into a (high priority) feature request.
Comment 3 DaSch 2009-01-24 12:26:37 UTC
well by the way the SVN Version of the parserfunctions can also handle a wide timerange, the only problem at the moment is that the output of dates is not parsable
Comment 4 Markus Krötzsch 2009-07-31 14:18:50 UTC
this problem was fixed some time ago, using the output format "ISO" as below:

 {{#ask: ...
 | ?dateproperty#ISO
