Date customization

Ohanah store date formats in the language files. To customize the date formats, you need to use Joomla language overrides.

There are two types of date formats in the Ohanah:

  1. PHP date formats 
  2. JavaScript date formats

It's important to use the correct date format. Some rules to make it easier:

  • It's JavaScript date format if string constant starts with KLS. Usually the format has some repeating letters (like 'dd/mmmm/yyyy')
  • It's PHP if string constant starts with COM_OHANAH and the date doesn't have repeating letters (like 'l, j F Y, H:i')
