Date format in theme?

Post by dale » Tue Feb 14, 2006 3:45 pm

Hiya. I am trying to write a template (just experimenting with things). I have noticed that s9y seems to define the date format in the lang files. Is there any way I can override the definition through a template? Or is modification of the lang files the only way?

Thanks for helping out! :-)

You can modify the templates to achieve the same result. Most of the date entries are in entries.tpl. Find any place we call |@formatTime and change it to |@date_format with the parameters specified in the Smarty manual.

If you're feeling adventurous, you could try the Smarty parameters with the Serendipity formatTime modifier.
