I'm using the date picker to set the date for a custom post type (events) and have it set up to order these posts by the custom date field. From the documentation, I have the date output format set to 'yy mm dd' which allows the sort t work properly.
The problem is that it's difficult for people to read the date in that format on the front end and so I want to re-format after the sort to read, for example, 01 May 2012.
Alternatively, if there is a way of ordering by date when the date is formatted dd M yyyy then that would be ideal!
Any help appreciated!
