SETTINGS

This add-on has following settings.

1) Default value of “date_format” parameter. ExpressionEngine’s date formats are described here: http://expressionengine.com/user_guide/templates/date_variable_formatting.html
Default value of this setting is “%D, %F %d, %Y”.

2) Default value of “localize” parameter. Set to “yes” if you need the dates to be localized by default, “no” if otherwise. Default value of this setting is “no”.

PARAMETERS OF exp:fdate tag

1) date - Required. Allows you to specify a date. Use format YYYY-MM-DD

2) time - Optional. Allows you to specify time. Use format HH-MM-SS (minutes and seconds are optional; hours should be specified in 24 hours format).

3) format - Optional. If specified, will override the value of relevant setting. ExpressionEngine’s date formats are described here: http://expressionengine.com/user_guide/templates/date_variable_formatting.html

4) localize - Optional. If specified, will override the value of relevant setting. Set to “yes” if you need the dates to be localized, “no” if otherwise.

USAGE EXAMPLES

This code will output formatted date using default values of “format” and “localize” parameters:

{exp:fdate date="2011-08-07"}

This code also will output formatted date using default values of “format” and “localize” parameters. Notice that time is also specified:

{exp:fdate date="2011-08-07" time="18:11:58"}

This code will output formatted date using default value of “format” parameter; “localize” parameter value will override default value:

{exp:fdate date="2011-08-07" time="18:11:58" localize="no"}

In this code “format” parameter value overrides default date format and “localize” parameter value overrides default localize value:

{exp:fdate date="2011-08-07" time="18:11:58" localize="no" format="%D, %F %d, %Y %H hours %i mins %s secs"}
