[Solved] Date format display 10 Years, 6 Months ago  
Gidday, can someone explain to me how to change the date format to dd/mm/yyyyy please. I notice here on this forum front page it is dd/mm/yyyy but once you enter a forum category it is displayed yyyy/mm/dd.

Thankyou

Open components/com_fireboard/templates/default/view.php,
change line 973, from
$msg_date =date(_DATETIME, $fmessage->time);
to
$msg_date =date(\"d/m/Y G:i\", $fmessage->time);

Re:Date format display 10 Years, 6 Months ago  
I discovered by changing the DEFINE(\'_DATETIME\',\'Y/m/d H:i\')in the administrator/components/com_fireboard/language/english.php to DEFINE(\'_DATETIME\',\'d/m/Y H:i\')seemed to be the answer. I left your suggestion Craig as you suggested and seems to be fine. Thankyou.;)

Doesn\'t seem to be working for me. I\'ve got the format d/m/y on the main page, but the individual message dates are m/d/y . Any suggestions?

Re:Date format display 10 Years, 6 Months ago  
Hi.

My problem is slightly different but related to this.

I tried to change the file fb_timeformat.class.php,
In that file you can change the names of days to the names in your country.
Or so I thought anyway.

I changed them to their Swedish names but it have absolutely no effect.
Tuesday is still Tuesday and not Tisdag as I want it displayed.

One problem for me might be that my main site is in English but the \"inside\" so to speak is in Swedish.

Maybe Fireboard draws the date from Joomla, but then why have fb_timeformat.class.php??

Thanks changing the admin english file worked for me :)

Any idea how you would add am or pm to the time stamp?

Cheers

Locii.

Actually figured it out - just add a or A to the end of the string. eg Y-m-d h:i:s A

I am having this same issue. I changed all the options in the english.php file to reflect accordingly, and the only thing that isn\'t formatting right now is the front page. I want it to reflect mm/dd/yyyy.

Any ideas?

Re:Date format display 10 Years, 5 Months ago  
I seem to remember that I could effect the forum front page view just by changing the config in the joomla backend ... I might be wrong though.
