Re: Date language other than English

both of those shouldn't be too difficult Tom. I'll add this to the feature request and work on it myself :)

things like this i can probably do, and leave the harder coding to the people that have the knowledge and experience :)

I'd love to see this option configurable in the admin and also as Dave suggested within the users profile so they can set how they want the date to appear for them personally.

I would also like to avoid what some modules do which allow the date to be set in admin, and that is to simply say to the user go to php.net and figure it out yourself.

Although it's relatively easy to figure out, our CMS targets people who sometimes don't wish to learn php, settings or variables, a cms system is to make it easier to publish information. So with that in mind an admin setting perhaps with a drop down box choosing how it should be displayed.
Or at minimum a simple explanation of the php date settings rather than saying "go figure".

I agree that the date/time format should be more easily configurable.

I think it should also be configurable by each user separately.

This may be getting off-topic, but a related issue is that the formatted date/time is constructed in a .php file, which has the side effect that cached blocks such as Recent Topics use the timezone of the last user who caused the block to get cached, rather than the timezone of the current user. It would be better for the .php file to only provide a timestamp to the template, which gets dynamically converted to a formatted date/time.

could we not put this into a preference setting that will allow users to change this from admin without editing files?

use the php date function etc, i'm not sure if by doing that it would make multilanguage easier in that regard.



Yes, please!
