I'm setting up a new site using 2.4.0 rc1. all is working very well except for the new DateField. I'm modifying an existing template that used CalendarDateField so the new version uses "setConfig('showcalendar')" to achieve the same interface. I'm in Australia so the limitation on showcalendar should not be a problem but ...
The datefield insists on using US style dates m/d/yr rather than d/m/yr. This means that the showcalendar output looks correct (d/m/yr) but fails validation. If I switch to 'dmyfields', the fields are listed in m/d/yr order. If I enter a valid US date manually, the field validates.
In my _config.php I have the line:
I have also added
to the page with the DateField
I can run legacydatetimefields and use the old CalendarDateField but the one time I tried, it included the time in the field as well as the date. I may be able to sort that one out but I'd really like to use the new version, if only I can get it to recognise the correct Locale.
Any suggestions as to where to look next to solve this problem?
