Need UK date format

Iíve probably asked this before, but is there a way to set the date format to dd-MM-yyyy which is the U.K. date format?

The thread post dates are showing in US date format (MM-did-yyyy) and this is a little confusing sometimes.

@IBRyan Dr. IBRyan Stat!

That was my reaction as well.

Hang in there, hopefully the mention got his attention or I'll leave a sticky note on his refrigerator.

If there is that change, maybe BF will also have to change the cost of everything from US dollars to pounds.

(Note: I am Australian, so the dollar is OK, but then I still have to calculate based on the US dollar being worth a bit more).

Hey Taz, have you tried to change your time and date settings in the User Control Panel? Did it change your date format?

Hi Ryan, unfortunately the date format displayed is still MM-dd-yyyy. For my locale, it should be dd-MM-yyyy.

It looks like there’s an option missing in the control panel and/or the forum software isn’t detecting my browser locale. Whilst I can set my time zone to London and the date stamps correctly reflect my location, the date _format_ is incorrect for me.

So I think it’s one of two issues: there’s a missing date format setting in the control panel or the software isn’t picking up my browser locale.

There is only one date format available on the software. Unfortunately it is not variable by user.

The UK format makes more sense to me and is more intuitive.

Time for ISO 8601!

Big to small: YYYY-MM-DD 24h:mm:ss +offset

And it is very likely the date is already being saved like that in the forum software itself.

You haven't used vBulletin since version 3.xx over a decade ago, have you?

I'm sure they'll get a round tuit.

I'm not sure what you are trying to say here?

I'm probably too young to understand at 32. /S
I have been active on plenty of forums, lots of them more techy than this and more modern mediums. If you are active in places where there are a lot more nationalities running around than here, which seems to be a mostly US-entered forum, and come from a country where time and dates are written differently the options here seem confusing at times.
