Wasn't sure what topic to put this in - I'm using userpage but this is actually a problem I'm experiencing after customizing it.
I'm having a difficult time with date output in the back-end. It's probably a simple solution, but my mind has been spinning for hours trying to solve it. So hopefully someone can help me. I'm using userpage module for registering users. I want to display the date the user has registered in the member's profile that is seen by the admin (under Security & viewing user details). I have finally been able to have the date displayed in US format (m/d/Y). The problem I am having is the relative time is showing up when logged in as admin & it is wrong.
Example: If I register today, March 2, 2010, the date automatically is displayed as 03/02/2010 (this is displayed both in the front-end of the site at the user's profile & in the back-end under Security, when viewing user's details as admin). However, in the back-end it also displays the relative time, so it says "03/02/2010, 2 months ago". (It does not list the relative time in the user's profile on the front-end).
I would be happy with a solution that either makes the relative date correct (which should be "Today"), or one that removes the relative date from appearing in the back-end. But I can't seem to get a solution on my own.
I'm currently using the Database field type Date & I'm using this in onBeforeWrite():
$this->DateRegistered = date('m/d/Y');
