00316: change of $TimeFmt string doesnt update format of "Recent Changes" date
$TimeFmtstring doesnt update format of "Recent Changes" date
Description: I want to change the time format string from "XXX, XX, XXXX, at XX:XX XX" to something like the iso standard "XXXX-XX-XX XX:XX".
I was able to do this by simply changing the
$TimeFmt variable in pmwiki.php to "%Y-%m-%d %I:%M" .. and the "Page last modified on" and Page History timestamps reflect the change ok, however, "RecentChanges" still shows as the old format...
Looking at the code, $RecentChangesFmt seems to use $CurrentTime, which seems to be using
$TimeFmt, not sure why it isnt getting changed..
Im still a beginner a php so i dont have a great grasp of whats going on.
any idea where to change the timestamp?
Second, keep in mind that changes in
$TimeFmt won't be reflected in the RecentChanges pages until pages are actually modified. I.e., any new pages you edit should show up in RecentChanges with the new
If this isn't working, write back here (or email pmwiki-users) and we'll work on it further. It might also help to have a url that we can look at.
Ok, it works as you say, only new edits reflect the new date format. Just a misunderstanding on my part, I assumed that the date formats on the RecentChanges pages were dynamic like the ones on "Page History" created.. Didnt think about RecentChanges being a static page. It does look kinda odd having different formats displayed though.
I would have posted a url but the wiki is on a company intranet so it cant be accesed from outside ;)
Thanks for the quick respose
