Hi,

I've recently come across Silver Stripe and am setting our own company website.
Because we deal with a lot of international clients, we want to display our local office time on the contact/support page.

I'm using the following to extract the date and time, but for some reason the H and i are ALWAYS "00":
$Now.Format(d/m/Y H:i)

The documentation for $Now indicates this uses the $Date class. The $Date class docs tell me Format uses the same input as the PHP function date.

Can anyone give me some advise on this please? i've checked and PHP echo date('d/m/Y H:i"); on the webserver outputs the correct hour/minute.

Make your own function for it.

Just put something like

function CurrentDateTime() {
return date('d/m/Y H:i");
}

In your Page class and then put

$CurrentDateTime

in your template instead.
