This Day In History
[resolved] Event Format Setting Ignored by Create/Edit Event (3 posts)

    I have my date format set to "Year First (YYYY-MM-DD): https://dl.dropbox.com/u/2071906/screencap1.png

    However, when I create an event the hint in the Event Date field uses the Month/Day/Year (MM/DD/YY) format: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/2071906/screencap4.png

    It says "The date the event occured (enter date in YYYY-MM-DD format)." right below the field, but the field doesn't seem to use this format.

    If I use the built-in calendar to select a date it also uses MM/DD/YY instead of YYYY-MM-DD: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/2071906/screencap5.png

    I am able to enter a date in YYYY-MM-DD format, and it will be recorded correctly. It will also be displayed in YYYY-MM-DD format in the display table: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/2071906/screencap6.png

    This is a minor issue that doesn't impact the ability to use the plugin. I just figured I'd mention it in case anyone else notices this.

    I think this is the same issue as the other one you raised about the missing century. If you can tell me what other plugins you have I can try to track down what is going on.

    This issue has more to due with quirky browser support for the INPUT tag type "date" than anything else. There is nothing wrong with the plugin coding, so I'm marking this one resolved as well.
