Go to your settings and switch the date/time feature to mm/dd/yy :P

I think the old one wasn't recognized by the new code, and it turned it into "custom"

Stickying.


Yeah, there was some mess up apparently with the db import to this board. Just go to Profile -> Board Preferences and change "My date format:" to what you like, then submit.

ALL dates the same? Just select one of the options in the dropdown menu or change around the php time format fusion posted

m/d/y = Month/Day/Year
d/m/y = Day/Month/year
y/d/m = Year/Day/Month

More Advanced stuff:

j = Day, will display 1 -31 (Same as d but without the 0)
D = 3 letter words for days (Mon - Sun, yes, Captial D, lowercase d is numbers)
l (lowercase L) = Full words for days, Monday - Sunday
z = Displays what day it is of the year! 1 - 365
W (captial) = What week it is, EG week 42 of the year)
F (captial) = January - December
n = Like m, but with no 0
L (captial) = 1 = Leap year, 0 = not leap year.
Y (captial) = 4 letter year EG: 2007
y (lowercase Y) = 2 letter year, EG: 07
a = am or pm
A = AM or PM
g = 12 hour format
G = 24 hour format
i = minutes
s = seconds

You can use spaces and : , etc between them as well
So for example;

F jS, Y, g:i a = September 2nd, 2007, 8:39 pm


etc...

If you set this it does fix it. It works for everyone else.

Yea the default settings seem to be set to custom,

Easy fix for date issues :

1. go into top of page where it says PROFILE

2. click BOARD PREFERENCES on the left menu

3. Click on My date format: AND SET IT TO ANYTHING BUT CUSTOM!!

DONE! all dates work fine.

its either because we imported data from an older version and date config was lost in the mix (and would only be old users) OR because this new board for some reason defaults everyone to CUSTOM in their starting settigs ,which is silly.
