    Changing Date Format

    Okay simple suggestion. Is it possible to change the format of dates like the "Join Date" because it sometimes is a bit confusing and hard to read.

    My Join Date:

    "06-08-2011"

    is that

    06 of August?

    or

    08 of June?

    ---

    So is it possible to change the format of the date?

    Re: Changing Date Format

    I'll look in to see if it's already possible to be changed.

    It's true, I hate seeing the US date format, it confuses my head sometimes.

    EDIT: Yeah, NB doesn't have the option to change it, but I'm sure it's possible with vBulletin.

    Yeah I agree, I'm so used to day/month/year not month/day/year. Sometimes it confuses the living crap out of me. :\

    Instead of changing it, maybe there is a plug-in that allows you to change to the format you prefer.

    Re: Changing Date Format

    i don't really see the necessity for the plug in. I use day/month/year, yet I'm accustomed to use month/day/year on NB.

    Just remember that on if you use the same system as I usually do, it's the other way around on NarutoBase. Simple as that.

    Plug ins would just slow down NB if they are not required, and that being said, I think it's clear the disadvantages outweigh the advantages of such a plug-in.

    A pluggy isn't really needed. But changing the format wouldn't be too bad.

    No one every became confused of which month was 05 June.

    Re: Changing Date Format

    The format for a forums is relatively easy to change. ie

    PHP Code:
    <?php
    echo date('d M Y');
    ?>
    Would set it as something similar to 01 Jan 9001 which would make things easy enough and wouldn't take long to change either.
