Hi,
I have downloaded the source of Jforum and now I have to modify the date format used in JForm. I have seen this line:



In the GenericForumDAO.java class but I don't understand where the date format is defined ("dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm", for example).
Could someone help me?
Thanks, bye bye.

It checks for the systemglobals.properties / jforum-custom.properties.

The key within that properties is specifed by ConfigKeys.DATE_TIME_FORMAT. I assume that the string should contain something along with'date' or 'time' in it. You can check the systemglobals.properties if you find the value.

I suggest to not simple replace the value in the properties then, but rather add that key/value pair to the jforum-custom.properties. This file is always checked first, and overwrites the default values within the systemglobals.properties

The value of this property is based on the "format string" used by the SimpleDateFormat class. The docs for this class describe the different abbreviations used in formatting dates fairly well. It even has a nice examples section. This doc is available here:
