i wanted the "last month's entries" on my BlogHolder.
Its a german Website so locale is "de_DE".

But the BlogHolder remained empty when i published some BlogEntries that are for example 5 days in the past.

I am not sure if its a Bug in BlogTree.php or if i am doing something wrong.

I guess the code in line 232


is calculating wrong.
Instead of substituting 1 month, he substituted 1 day and added 1 hour.
see screenshot for debugmessages

When i change the line to:


its a little bit better, because he substitutes 1 month and 1 day

Anyone else with this problem?

Yes, I can confirm this behavior, choosing posts from the last 6 months just subtracted 6 days, locale being de_DE. With locale set to en_US like so (in blog/code/BlogTree.php):
$d->sub($this->LandingPageFreshness, null, 'en_US');
beams me 6 months and three days into the past. I guess it's a bug in ZF.

I went for the solution from this post:
and it works...
