Date Format Restrictions

Post by zanejin »

While surfing the User Control Panel, enjoying the splendid proSilver style, I tried to set the "My date format" (Forum preferences > Edit global settings) to "r", to get an RFC 2822-formatted date. As a result, I got thrown a "TOO_SHORT_DATEFORMAT" error.

Is there a reason for setting the minimum number of characters that can be submitted into the field, or is it just something unintentional?

Well "r" is a valid date() flag so file this as a bug and see if the devs want to fix it.
