Support » Plugin: Contact Form DB » Date format display doubled up

  • When I use the [cfdb-datatable] shortcode, the first column displays the ‘Submit Date’. The data is displaying digits doubled up, for example, where I would expect a date (in UK format dd/mm/yy) such as 16/02/13, it is displaying 1616/0202/1313.

    Also is there any way to control the order that columns appear in the [cfdb-datatable] output? I have 4 file upload fields in my CF7 form, and in my [cfdb-datatable] output the first upload field is displaying as one of the latter columns by itself in the display, isolated from the remaining 3 upload fields which appear together in the centre of the column ordering, leftwards by several columns from that first one.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks, Paul

    Order of columns: use the “show” option on the short code to list the columns in the order you wish to see them.

    Date format: I don’t know why it is double up but try this:
    – go to WP admin page -> Contact Form DB -> Options
    – “Use Custom Date-Time Display Format” = true
    – “Date-Time Display Format” = d/m/Y
    – Save changes

    I changed to the Custom date format, exactly as you suggested, but the date format in the returned [cfdb-datatable] for ‘Submit date’ is still the same. I do have other dates which are manually entered into the form in CF7, and these are displayed correctly. Its just the submit date which is incorrectly displayed.

    Cheers, Paul
