The Localised Date Format (LDF) extension allows Store Owners to quickly configure:

  • How Dates are Displayed throughout an entire OpenCart store.
  • How Dates are Entered into Datepicker input and search fields.
  • Whether or not to display the Time.

Dates can be formatted as ISO, American, European or Custom formats. The Date separator can be a slash, dash or dot within Datepicker input fields.

List Views and Datepicker input fields each have a separate format. This allows dates to be input using a short format and displayed in a longer, more descriptive format. Datepicker input fields are utilized by all Search Filters and when Adding or Editing items that contain Date or Time settings.

ISO Date format (big-endian)

  • Dates can be input as: 2017-01-03
  • Dates can be displayed as: 2017 January 03 (or any format)

American Date format (middle-endian)

  • Dates can be input as: 1/3/17
  • Dates can be displayed as: January 3rd, 2017 (or any format).

European Date format (little-endian)

  • Dates can be input as: 3/1/17
  • Dates can be displayed as: 3. January 2017 (or any format)
