Arabic PR plz :
https://github.com/david63/david63-joineddate/pull/1

Suggestion to edite the JOINED_DATE_FORMAT_EXPLAIN file to be like bellow :

Code: Select all

'JOINED_DATE_FORMAT_EXPLAIN'	=> 'Leave blank to use the user default date format. Available Format : M Y - F Y - d M Y - d F Y - |M Y| - |F Y| - |d M Y| - |d F Y|.',
For people who don't know date format.

I mean only numerals instead of words.

I agree that there needs to be some indication of the formats that are available. I will take a look later.

David,

Would you consider adding the format change to the "Members" list also in a future version? I know people would like to gain more space in that area.

Thanks,
Michael

I'll take a look but off the top of my head I don't think that there are may events in there

Updated to version b2 - now uses format selector in the ACP, the same as Default date format. As a side effect this gives more options (should anyone need them, also adding this extension add a few more options into the default date format)

@tahoebuff - My first instinct was right - there are no suitable events in Memberlist to change this but I will look at the possibility of adding one (if it has not already been added) as there should be one in there anyway.

OK - after some more delving I have found the event to change the joined date format on Memberlist (it also changes it on a member's profile)

This leads me to a few questions:
  • Do you want this to change automatically on the Memberlist/profile or do you want it as an option?
  • Do you want the Memberlist joined date in the same format as Viewtopic or have its own (selectable) format?
  • Do you want an option to change the format on a member's profile or just use the same format as Memberlist?

Thanks so much for including this option!

I'm perfectly satisfied with how it works at the moment (I like things fluid)...but, I am aware others may want some more options available to them. I'm sure future comments will answer this question.

Updated version.

Options now via Extension tab in ACP and can select format for each of Viewtopic, Memberlist and Profile - all can be different!

To install this version:
  • Disable previous version
  • Delete data
  • Delete files
  • Upload new files
  • Enable
