Recommended Posts

Hi!

1. Im making a store, but the date in the bottom of the store is in english. My store gonne be whole swedish. Where can i change the month- and dayname to swedish? i looked at the jsp file but i didnt find anything. Help me please.

 

2. When you are making a account, you must write you personal number. In sweden we write yyyymmdd1234 (1234 is control number, a must). Instead of writing dd/mm/yyyy. How do i change it and where? Thanks for all answers.

I think format settings like these are all in catalog\includes\languages\yourlanguage.php and catalog\admin\includes\languages\yourlanguage.php.

 

Also look in catalog\create_account.php for the create account problem.

 

Looks like it sucks to be Swedish - what next, they insert a chip at birth?

I'm not entirely sure, but it might be something to do with the setlocale at the start of catalog\includes\languages\yourlanguage.php...

 

Mine looks like this (for UK settings): -

 

// look in your $PATH_LOCALE/locale directory for available locales
// or type locale -a on the server.
// Examples:
// on RedHat try 'en_US'
// on FreeBSD try 'en_US.ISO_8859-1'
// on Windows try 'en', or 'English'
@setlocale(LC_TIME, 'en_UK.ISO_8859-1'); // #Credits to Brian Sim (aka Simmy) http://www.oscommerce.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=129520&st=0&p=520992#

define('DATE_FORMAT_SHORT', '%d/%m/%Y');  // this is used for strftime()
define('DATE_FORMAT_LONG', '%A %d %B, %Y'); // this is used for strftime()
define('DATE_FORMAT', 'd/m/Y'); // this is used for date()
define('DATE_TIME_FORMAT', DATE_FORMAT_SHORT . ' %H:%M:%S');

////
// Return date in raw format
// $date should be in format mm/dd/yyyy
// raw date is in format YYYYMMDD, or DDMMYYYY
function tep_date_raw($date, $reverse = false) {
 if ($reverse) {
return substr($date, 0, 2) . substr($date, 3, 2) . substr($date, 6, 4);
 } else {
return substr($date, 6, 4) . substr($date, 3, 2) . substr($date, 0, 2);
 }
}

 

Which I think I got from a variety of sources and contribs...so far back I can't remember. Try changing these for the Swedish formatting. Remember to do the same in catalog\admin\includes\languages\yourlanguage.php.

 

Also one or more of these contribs might help you: - http://www.oscommerce.com/community?contri...sh&category=all

dates are changed automatically because of the locale. Seems you're not setting up the language correctly.

 

i looked at the jsp file but i didnt find anything

 

and what jsp file you were looking at?

At a guess, the start of your svenska.php files should be: -

Check your file: catalog\includes\languages\swedish.php

if You don't have it, You don't have Swedish in your shop. If so, find a language pack from the contributions and install.

 

I'm presuming You have installed the Swedish language pack, and you have the catalog/includes/languages/swedish.php.

 

It starts with something like this:

<?php

setlocale(LC_TIME, 'sv_SE.ISO_8859-1');

 

The critical part is this: setlocale(LC_TIME, 'sv_SE.ISO_8859-1');

If you have physical access to the server You are using, find the "locale" directory on it. On my mac it is at:

/usr/share/locale AND check how the "sv_SE.ISO_8859-1) is spelled there!!!

On my machine it says "sv_SE.ISO8859-1". (no underscore between ISO and 8859!" Correct the spelling in the swedish.php (if necessary).

 

It only took me two days to find the spelling difference in my own shop-project. (Finnish) :blush:
