Hi. I'm having and issue trying to change the date format that the UpcomingEvents function displays from YYYY-MM-DD to MM-DD-YYYY. I've made the En-US localization changes in both the master and Event Calendar _config.php files. Dates and times now display properly throughout the site except for the UpcomingEvents function. Is there something I'm missing?

You're using the $_Dates function?

When you say you made localization updates, what do you mean by that?

Silverstripe tips, tutorials, screencasts, and more.

By localization I meant changing the date and time display to US format, using the functionality provided in the _config.php file in Event Calendar.

Here's an example of the code I'm using for UpcomingEvents:

<% control UpcomingEvents(5) %>
         <li><a href="$Link">$EventTitle<small>$StartDate</small></a></li>
<% end_control %>

Not sure if $StartDate is related to $_Dates... Pretty new to all this:) Thanks for the help.

Solved. The $_Dates function is what I needed.
