Milestone: 0.8.1

What locale are you using?

comment:3 by Claude, 17 years ago

I have a similar problem but nothing will work. It does not accept any of

  • 01/31/05
  • 01/31/2005
  • 31/01/05
  • 31/01/2005

Which locale are you asking about? The client computer, the browser, the server, or another one I do not know about?

comment:4 by Manuzhai, 17 years ago

He's probably talking about the locale referenced in TracFaq, question 1.8.

For me, 'Jan 25, 2005' worked.

comment:5 by Claude, 17 years ago

Ok, that was it. 2004-01-31 worked for me. I did not figure out where this setting is nor where Trac pics up the format it suggests to use.

The format suggested by the form is hard-coded, which is obviously wrong (well, it's obvious now…)

We should instead somehow generate the hint taking the server locale into account.

comment:8 by Manuzhai, 17 years ago

Well, I'm not sure this whole locale thing is the best way to go forward.

It would be much more straightforward if there was like a simple config setting. Especially since Trac isn't really multi-language anyway, so it wouldn't make sense to have these language-specific date thingies. You'd still want some customization (for the stupid Americans with their mm/dd thingie), but maybe not too much.
