New dateformat


Recommended Posts

I would like to change the date format to YYYY-mm-dd. How should this look like:


define('DATE_FORMAT_SHORT', '%m/%d/%Y');  // this is used for strftime()

define('DATE_FORMAT_LONG', '%A %d %B, %Y'); // this is used for strftime()

define('DATE_FORMAT', 'm/d/Y'); // this is used for date()



// 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($date, 3, 2) . substr($date, 0, 2) . substr($date, 6, 4);

 } else {

   return substr($date, 6, 4) . substr($date, 0, 2) . substr($date, 3, 2);
