Long Date not changed in other language packs?


Recommended Posts

I noticed that selecting a language other than english does not change the time to german or spanish and i would like to do this. I was able to change the current date into german and spanish that is displayed in the bottom left of the footer. However I can't successfully change the date code in the counter file. Would love some help or a place where someone has posted code for this already. thanks

First you have to find out which OS is your server running, then go to \catalog\includes\languages\ and open espanol.php


Locate this line...

@setlocale(LC_TIME, 'es_ES.ISO_8859-1');

notice this is the default option, and it works for FreeBSD




If your server is running RedHat you must change to


@setlocale(LC_TIME, 'es_ES');


If your server is running Windows you must change to


@setlocale(LC_TIME, 'sp');


It works for me, I hope it works for you!! :D
