Need help with Calendar for UK day/date convention

posts: 838 United Kingdom

Hi - I'm trying to use the Calendar feature for a site used by UK users where the date convention is day/month. Under Admin General Features I've set the "Fields display order:" to ))DayMonthYear(( and the timezone to Europe/London, but so far I've left the other fields, %A %d of %B, %Y etc., as standard (since I'm not sure what the conventions being used here are all about - although I can guess some of it)

However whenever an Event calendar is viewed the individual days are displayed as month/day which is very confusing toa UK user, and more seriously importing events by uploading data exported from (say) Outlook gets the data all wrong since it thinks the import is in the month/day format.

Is there some way of configuring this differently?

Would really appreciate some help from someone that has used this Feature in a UK environment and has hopefully solve this problem or can advise on how the functionality has been built.

Thanks

OK - I've now fixed the 'cosmetic' aspect of this by editing tiki-calendar.tpl, tiki-calendar_nav.tpl and tiki-calendar_calmode.tpl since the month/day format was hard coded. If anyone would like the details I've posted them as patches to the Bug/Wish Tracker.

Still grappling with the import function - but I'm not really sure now if this is still current since there are no links to it from any of the screens and whilst 'playing' earlier today I crashed the database and had to restore it. Not sure what happened but if anyone has any current info on Calendar import I'd like to hear from them.

Thanks
