Currently all of the dates are displaying like (dd/mm/yyyy)

I need them to either display mm/dd/yyyy or (Spelled out) month dd, yyyy.

How do I do this?

i have found the date format in the main english language file (.../catalog/language/english/english.php), and i have changed it to my desired format. however, when i look at, for example, the list of orders, i still see the dates formatted euro style. i see in the database they are stored as datetime, so i'm assuming it isn't about how they are stored in the db. is there something else i am missing?

thanks!

Okay, I changed the long and short date formats in these two files.
But I'm still seeing year/month/date on the data tab for products.
I don't get this.

I am not being contrary, but why would someone not put the date format in the settings rather than making it necessary to change the php files directly considering that the US and GB use different date formats?

I went ahead and created a vQmod for updating the dates to US format:

Enjoy!

First install vQmod: http://code.google.com/p/vqmod/

And then upload my .xml file to the /vqmod/xml/

hmm...when I use this plugin it fixes the date great, but it breaks my site? A lot of the jquery doesnt work as well as products not adding to cart.

http://sunnybunnyeastereggs.com/store/ is my site. I removed the plugin to get the site working properly.

Any ideas?

Change the date available (from the Data tab on Product page in admin panel) on the file:

admin/controller/catalog/product.php

on lines 867 and 869

If anyone is still interested... All you have to do is edit the file located at:
{yourwebsite.com}\catalog\language\english\english.php

The first two lines are the time and date settings for the site.

If you want a good reference to go by, the php date page is a great one. It is located at:
http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.date.php

Hope that helps anyone who finds this post in the future!

I did this but the date is still showing incorrectly. Do I have to restart PHP on my web server? Only problem is that my server is hosted and I only have access through cPanel... anyone know how to restart web services via cPanel?

thanks!

Hi,
For those of you using Mijoshop (the Joomla component that bridges Opencart and Joomla), you will need to modify the following files in your Joomla installation. For some reason the Mijoshop developers decided to overwrite the date formats in the Opencart language files.

/language/en-GB/en-GB.com_mijoshop.ini
/administrator/en-GB/en-GB.com_mijoshop.ini
