I have set up the latest trunk version of CMS as there seemed to be some issues with the earlier version and the forums module. I have also pulled the latest version of the BLOG and added that. However i am getting some strange errors and posting blogs from within the admin interface seems to fail.

After creating a new BlogEntry and filling in the relevent information then clicking the "Save and Publish" button i receive a "Validation Error" toward the bottom left of the interface. Then at the mottom of the page i get a green box with red outline stating the following.
"Please enter a valid date format (DD/MM/YYYY)."

Although i have turned on HTML code so i can hopefully add flash items into the blogs i also tested with the bbcode's and get the same problem.

If however I use the main blog site page admin to add, modify the text this seems to work.

Could not figure out the reason for this error so I removed the entire system including the database, reinstalled fresh and evryting worked a treat. My guess is that there was some form of incompatibility in a database field but am not compleatly sure

Hmmm.. I bumped into this once as well...

It works okay with the RC2 , but not with the trunk version of Silverstripe ......

I came across this as well when using SSDatetime in combination with CalendarDateField - which now doesn't seem to accept dates with hour/minute/seconds in it. When I replaced SSDatetime with Date the problem went away.

I'm just wondering, is there cms validation now?

Yeah, it seems we are getting CMS validation in the next release (2.3).

Change the type from SSDateTime to Date fixes it indeed , but the blog uses SSDateTime as well so I guess we'll have to wait for the next trunk release ... ;-)

People always warn against using RC's or beta's in development environments, but I can never resist the urge... hahha ;-)
