Support » Fixing WordPress » Date in english, rest in dutch

  • On my testsite (with the latest nightly) I see that all of a sudden the dates are back in english, while they were in dutch a few days ago. Everything else is in dutch (admin-area + months), except for the dates of posts.

    Did something change for the languagefiles not to function properly?

  • Probably you got the date disconfigured in the admin. You can fix it in admin>options

    I think it should be working. In the optionsmenu the datefield even gives a preview of how the date will look like: Dinsdag 18 Januari, 2005

    The only thing is I’m using it like this:
    <?php the_time("l j F, Y"); ?>

    instead of the_Date.

    But this has always worked. Untill now.
    I’m using the languagefile for dutch, and this also works for everything, except this date.

    Moxie, the language files won’t work 100% with every latest nightly. The reason is that for every version of WP, the language files have to be adapted. The localization teams, understandably, will only provide translation files for verision 1.5 when it is (close to being) released.

    You can, of course, either edit your own files or join the localization effort. A good starting point is

    Actuallly, this is due to changes to the_time() and get_the_time(). I’ll look into it. Write a bug to track the issue.

    Thanks rboren. Ah, it’s sometimes good to read that not all that goes wrong is due the one who writes this.

    And uh, ‘write a bug to track the issue’, does that mean I have to report the bug myself? I’ll be glad to if I knew where? Also then I would know when the problem is solved :).
