I have to say i'm still confused about who to go about swapping around the format dates are displayed in the Event Calendar. As my config local is set to:


I was kinda hoping that creating an en_GB file under /events_calendar/lang and swapping around all the formats would do the job, but it does not. Can anyone help me as to how I get that file to be applied? or the proper solutions if that's not it.

In event_calendar/_config.php, you'll see a big block of code for $customDateTemplates. Copy all of that into your mysite/_config.php, uncomment it, and hopefully it's self-explanatory. It's not the prettiest thing in the world, but it gives you the most flexibility.

Hi, not to hijack, its a similar problem.

Ive succeeded into displaying the calendar in French, using

setlocale(LC_ALL, 'fr_FR.UTF8', 'fr_FR', 'fr-FR', 'french'); into mysite/_config.php

but if it correctly displays the calendar in French, it displays the wrong day/date.

As image below shows, we are SATURDAY 2nd and the calendar displays FRIDAY 22nd.

My guess is that it picks up the date correctly but as the week starts with Sundat, it offsets everything. So, what to do?
