    Default Re: How do I change the Date?

    Thanks gilby, I eventually got it working.

    For anyone else who wants to know here is what I done step by step to change the date format from mm/dd/yyyy to dd/mm/yyyy:

    1. open file includes/languages/<YOUR_TEMPLATE>/<YOUR_LANGUAGE>.php

    2. find this section around line 22:
    @setlocale(LC_TIME, 'en_US.ISO_8859-1');
    define('DATE_FORMAT_SHORT', '%m/%d/%Y'); // this is used for strftime()
    define('DATE_FORMAT_LONG', '%A %d %B, %Y'); // this is used for strftime()
    define('DATE_FORMAT', 'm/d/Y'); // this is used for date()
    define('DATE_TIME_FORMAT', DATE_FORMAT_SHORT . ' %H:%M:%S');
    and replace with:
    @setlocale(LC_TIME, 'en_US.ISO_8859-1');
    define('DATE_FORMAT_SHORT', '%d/%m/%Y'); // this is used for strftime()
    define('DATE_FORMAT_LONG', '%A %d %B, %Y'); // this is used for strftime()
    define('DATE_FORMAT', 'd/m/Y'); // this is used for date()
    define('DATE_TIME_FORMAT', DATE_FORMAT_SHORT . ' %H:%M:%S');
    3. in the same file find this section around line 29:
    // Return date in raw format
    // $date should be in format mm/dd/yyyy
    // raw date is in format YYYYMMDD, or DDMMYYYY
    if (!function_exists('zen_date_raw')) {
    function zen_date_raw($date, $reverse = false) {
    if ($reverse) {
    return substr($date, 3, 2) . substr($date, 0, 2) . substr($date, 6, 4);
    } else {
    return substr($date, 6, 4) . substr($date, 0, 2) . substr($date, 3, 2);
    }
    }
    }
    and replace with:
    // Return date in raw format
    // $date should be in format mm/dd/yyyy
    // raw date is in format YYYYMMDD, or DDMMYYYY
    if (!function_exists('zen_date_raw')) {
    function zen_date_raw($date, $reverse = false) {
    if ($reverse) {
    return substr($date, 0, 2) . substr($date, 3, 2) . substr($date, 6, 4);
    } else {
    return substr($date, 6, 4) . substr($date, 3, 2) . substr($date, 0, 2);
    }
    }
    }
    4. In the same file find this section around line 67:
    // text for date of birth example
    define('DOB_FORMAT_STRING', 'mm/dd/yyyy');
    and replace with:
    // text for date of birth example
    define('DOB_FORMAT_STRING', 'dd/mm/yyyy');
    5. In the same file find this section around line 200:
    define('ENTRY_DATE_OF_BIRTH_ERROR', 'Is your birth date correct? Our system requires the date in this format: MM/DD/YYYY (eg 05/21/1970)');
    define('ENTRY_DATE_OF_BIRTH_TEXT', '* (eg. 05/21/1970)');
    and replace with:
    define('ENTRY_DATE_OF_BIRTH_ERROR', 'Is your birth date correct? Our system requires the date in this format: DD/MM/YYYY (eg 21/05/1970)');
    define('ENTRY_DATE_OF_BIRTH_TEXT', '* (eg. 21/05/1970)');
    6. Open file admin/includes/languages/<YOUR_LANGUAGE>.php

    7. Find this section around line 20:
    setlocale(LC_TIME, 'en_US.ISO_8859-1');

    define('DATE_FORMAT_LONG', '%A %d %B, %Y'); // this is used for strftime()
    define('DATE_FORMAT', 'm/d/Y'); // this is used for date()
    define('PHP_DATE_TIME_FORMAT', 'm/d/Y H:i:s'); // this is used for date()
    define('DATE_TIME_FORMAT', DATE_FORMAT_SHORT . ' %H:%M:%S');
    define('DATE_FORMAT_SPIFFYCAL', 'MM/dd/yyyy'); //Use only 'dd', 'MM' and 'yyyy' here in any order
    and replace with:
    setlocale(LC_TIME, 'en_US.ISO_8859-1');
    define('DATE_FORMAT_SHORT', '%d/%m/%Y'); // this is used for strftime()
    define('DATE_FORMAT_LONG', '%A %d %B, %Y'); // this is used for strftime()
    define('DATE_FORMAT', 'd/m/Y'); // this is used for date()

    } else {
    return substr($date, 6, 4) . substr($date, 0, 2) . substr($date, 3, 2);
    }
    }

    }
    }
    9. In the same file find this section around line 85:
    // text for date of birth example

    define('JS_DOB', '* The \'Date of Birth\' entry must be in the format: xx/xx/xxxx (month/date/year).\n');
    and replace with:

    I want to change year to Buddhism. I know that I have to add +543 after some function to be corrected. However, I don't know how or where can I edit it?

    Yes that works very well, thank you,

    I'm not sure if its planned but wouldnt it be great to have a option in admin to change between US and UK date formats.

    I just wanted to say a HUGE thanks for this Phil!

    As someone with no knowledge of programming and new to Zen cart (the person who designed my website chose to use it)
    Your step by step instructions were just what I needed to be successful at making the change I wanted to!!

    A godsend for a beginner!!
    Thanks so much!

    Debbie

    This was great info, thanks. However, I have been wading through tutorials and little warnings pop up now and again about making sure your files don't get over-ridden during an update. For this reason (AT STEP 6) I copied the file admin/includes/languages/<YOUR_LANGUAGE>.php into
    admin/includes/languages/<YOUR_TEMPLATE>/<YOUR_LANGUAGE>.php and made my changes there.

    It seems to work and I don't know if I'm just being over cautious or not.
