event time - changing to 24 hr (7 posts)

    When the free version of Events manager is 1st installed, under "When", the "Event starts at" times are in normal mode. (ie 03:00 PM, 10:30 PM, etc). As soon as any change is made in the settings area, the "Event starts at" times go to military time.

    Does anyone know who to get it back to normal time settings after making changes to various setting?

    already tried that. I also have a new install going on another domain without any modifications done to the plugin.

    Works perfect but once you try to change any settings, the time settings on the add event page goes to 24hr clock. Only way to fix is to do an overall reset

    "Use 24h Format" is worthless.

    I've tried h:i a, g:i a, uppercase, etc - nothing changes

    Is there a way to force it to always read out in normal time?

    NOTE: now this is for person setting up the event in admin area. I'm trying to make it more user friendly to the customer so they don't always have to change over from military time to normal time when creating an event.

    (viewable mode on site is appearing as it should be)

    anything! Again I am only addressing the drop-downs in the events admin area ("when/Event starts at")

    Install fresh copy. Ck the "add event page" / "when/Event starts at", everything looks and works fine.
    Now if I go to "Settings" and make ANY setting change anywhere or even just press an update button without making any changes, the "Event starts at" times change to a 24 hr time format, which makes it confusing for the client to select the correct event times.

    On the live end, everything seems to be working and appears fine. It's just within the events admin area is the bug
