[Resolved] Invalid date

  • I have a custom date field added to my posts.
    After I enter a date (using the calendar popup picker)
    Let’s say I choose September 14, 2012 and update the post.
    It saves the post and displays the content of the field as ‘1347580800’ and on the front end displays ‘March 14, 0800’

    This has been working until the plugin was ugraded to 1.2. Is there a fix for this or do I have to roll back to previous version.

    I have this problem too. Sometimes it doesn’t save some dates: when I try “06/01/1954”, it works. When I try “01/06/1954”, it displays “-491875200”. Why?

    I made a copy of the website:
    Disabled all plugins except for types and also switched the theme to Twenty Twelve.

    The same problem still arises.

    If you want access to dev site, to take a look at it please let me know and I can get credentials to you.

    For our information: The plugin stores the dates in the db as timestamps (“-491875200”), so the problem must be in returning the value with the correct format (“01/06/1954”).

    Hi hejeva2,

    I am not able to replicate the issue in my local copy. Please send me your DB dump and log-in details to my mail -> bigul.m@wpml.org.

    Please Note: Kindly take a back up before sending the database.

    I sent you an email with the requested information. Let me know if you don’t get it. The db is attached.

    Hi hejeva2,

    I have received your mail. We will work on it and update you soon.

    Hi mbigul?

    I’m having problems with the date format. My site is in Portuguese, and when I set a date in the date field, it shows a message that error has the date is invalid! : (

    He does not accept date in format: 20/03/2013. dd/mm/yyyy

    Have any tips?

    Thank you.

    Hi hejeva2,

    It is happens rarely when in one group has multiple date fields. We will add fix for it soon.

    Just updated the plugin and if the 1.2.1 release had the bug fix in it. It didn’t help and the issue is there there.

    I don’t think its rare or I have found a way to hit the bug frequently because 9 out of the first 50 posts have the issue.

    They have made available a new version, but did not correct the error with the field of type date.

    Let’s wait for the next version, because the plugin is very good!

    My question is: WordPress has an option to set the date format (which I believe is in accordance with the user’s region) and because the plugins do not use this definition?

    What is the definition of default date if the plugins do not use this feature of the WordPress API?

    Hi there!

    I run into the same issue myself. I am running WP v2.5.1 and the Types plugin v1.2.1 which I used to create a custom post type to which I added two custom date fields.
    Both these date fields seem to have an issue with some specific dates.

    For example if I input the date 2012/11/22 and hit the update button on the admin panel, the value on the admin panel is replaced with 1353542400 which translates to 2400/03/25 on the blog.

    I am pretty sure that the fact that part of the wrong date is part of today’s date (03/25) is somehow relevant, but I am not sure how.

    Also note that this does not happen with all the dates.

    Hi All,

    Sorry for the issues. We will fix the bug in Types 1.3. Our developers are working on it.

    That’s good to know!

    In the meantime could someone post a link from where I could download version so that I rollback to it?

    Is there any rough estimation about when this new version will be available?
