1.2 beta 2: Date format issues, German locale
« on: January 28, 2009, 12:55:36 PM »
With German locale we have some date format issues. The usual German date formats are as follows:

1) "dd.mm.yyy" --> "28.01.2009"

2) "Mittwoch, 28.01.2009" or "Mittwoch, 28. Januar 2009"

3) "Mi 28.01."

4) "Erstellt am 27.12.2008 13:16 durch ..."

5) First day of week is always Monday

We changed the language files lang.js and general.php as told from alvarotm01 in http://forums.opengoo.org/index.php?topic=788.0 but it does not work correctly:

- If I create a new task with end date e.g. "01.02.2009" (means February 01, 2009) after creation of this task it has the wrong date "01.12.1999" (means December 01, 1999). The same occurs if I edit a task. And on comments it's the same too.

- Comments showing "Erstellt am Dez 27. 2008 13:16 durch ..." which should be "Erstellt am 27.12.2008 13:16 durch ..."

- Calendar in the Day view showing "Mittwoch 28, Januar 2009" which should be "Mittwoch, 28.01.2009" or "Mittwoch, 28. Januar 2009"

- Calendar in the Week view should show "Mi, 28.01." (Wed 01/28) but it shows "Mi 28.01.2009". But this isn't a big issue.

Maybe we have to change some more language files. Please advice.

Hi,

The reason why you had that problem in tasks is because the date format contains "." instead of "/" to separate day, month and year.

By now change the "." to "/" in those language files.
In a future version date formats separated with "." will be available

And the other formats you mencioned will be available too.

Thanks.

I already changed it back to "/".

Is this working now on v. 1.2.0.1?
