Change long date to USA format


Recommended Posts

I know alot of people here run USA based stores, so I thought I'd post this. It may have been posted before, but I really can't remember so here it is.


Default OSC returns the long date format as "Wednesday 16 July, 2003". That format is a little awkward for us USA store owners. The correct USA format for that would be "Wednesday July 16, 2003"


how to change this? open includes/languages/english.php and at the top, change:

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



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