Hi all,

I would like to display the time the order was placed next to the date, in the Sales->Orders page in the admin section.
Is there already a variable for time that I can call?

Cheers,
Sam

open: admin/controller/sale/order.php

find:

Code: Select all

'date_added'    => date($this->language->get('date_format_short'), strtotime($result['date_added'])),
change to:

Code: Select all

'date_added'    => date($this->language->get('date_format_short'), strtotime($result['date_added'])).' '.date($this->language->get('time_format'), strtotime($result['date_added'])),

Kudos to you!

However, my server time and my local time is having a 15 hours difference. How can I make it to show the time in my local timezone?

I read the post about Setting Local Timezone values in database. I am not sure if I get the meaning wrong but I do not want to change the time in the MySQL database (what if I decided to change the host, and the server is at another time zone again, and that will mess up the time recorded... btw, i haven't check if the database recorded the time in unix timestamp).
I just want to have the local time display on the webpage, which probably is as stated in this post.

Someone did this, and I read this blog post too regarding the changes needed to show the local date for specials and discounts feature.

I don't know which approach is the best. Probably you can give suggestions and solutions on this if it is not too much of works.

Thank you in advance.

----------------------------

Edit to add:
Never mind, I decided to use the method showing in Setting Local Timezone values in database.

Thanx, useful modification!
How does the string look like for an 24 hour notation?

You can change the format at admin/language/english/english.php
e.g. From h:i:s A = 08:05:13 PM to H:i:s = 20:05:13

change:

Code: Select all

$_['time_format']           = 'h:i:s A';
to:

Code: Select all

$_['time_format']           = 'H:i:s';

Hi guys,

Changing the the time format in the admin language files, does not convert the time into a 24 hour format.
It still shows the time in an 12 hour format, but without AM/PM.

I assume this modification had to be done in the admin/conroller/sale/order.php file, isn't it?
Please tell me how.

kind regards

Are you sure you typed "H"?
Because H is for 00~23, h is for 01~12. Please refer to the manual here.

This post here is another approach of changing the date & time format wherever you want.

Hello guys,
This was really useful for my shop.
But is there a way to show the time also in the Dashboard?

Thank you for the useful modification.

However, I have an issue related to time: By default, from the control panel in admin we can only set period by choosing a starting date and an ending date from a calendar drop-down (e.g: special discount period). How can I input a date WITH TIME (for example: 2011-12-13 10:06:49) in the control panel? This is important for my shop.

Thanks in advance

This works great, but how do I add the time on the Print Page ?
I tried to add the same time code, but it shows 00:00

What do you mean by Print Page?
Print Order?
Which file did you try to edit?
