correct time and date

  • These should help you:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/the_time
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Formatting_Date_and_Time
    http://us2.php.net/date

    For the Norwegian format you mention, this should do it:
    <?php the_time('j. F Y') ?>

    And 24-hour format is like this:
    <?php the_time('H:i') ?>

    Does that work?

    Maybe
    — if I only could find the proper *.php file to put it in :-))

    Please note!
    We DONT write
    7. August
    month is small caps like:
    7. august
    Proper norwegian is:
    tirsdag 8. august 2006
    (which is today )

    I forgot! Go to Options >> General and scroll down the page to “Date and Time.” That’s where you’ll want to set all of this.

    Next, go to wp-includes and find locale.php. That’s where you’ll make the changes so that the days of the week are in your language and the months are lowercase.

    The Codex is pretty weak on this:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_in_Your_Language

    And the language repository:
    http://svn.automattic.com/wordpress-i18n/

    Very sad repository, though. Which languages are “nb,” “nl,” and “nn”? No idea. To make it worse, several of those directories don’t have any files in them, sending some poor souls on a wild goose chase through “branches,” “tags,” and “trunks.”

    If this is the correct way of going about it, if it’s proper to modify the locale.php file when there’s no obvious MO file for your language, let me know and I’ll try to write something up for the Codex. Further, if there’s an easy way to create new MO files and send them to Automattic for inclusion in the repository, write up a new posting about that.

    Thank you for your kind help !
    It was the locale.php which solved it all, now my wordpress is “real Norwegian”.

    Sorry that I don´t write english in my blogg, my written english isn´t that fluent.

    No problem. Can you mark this “Resolved”? Thanks. And if you put your locale.php file somewhere, we might be able to make a MO out of it and add it to the language file repository.
