    Hi, i'm trying to get this output in the template:

    January 2010
    April 2011
    or at least
    (or whatever you have in the US^^)
    I've tried to add:
    <td>{xen:date $stat.date, 'M.Y'}</td><td>{$stat.registrations}</td>
    to the template, but it's not working

    As i checked the method, which is responsible for this, i saw that it's not possible.
    Do i really need to overwrite this method also, or is there a other way for this?:(

    The 2nd parameter (format) only accepts these values: relative, absolute, monthDay, and picker. So no you can't pass a format you would normally pass to php's date() function.

    You can always create your own template helper!

    FYI, since beta6 it's possible

    For a list of the formatting characters we support, look at XenForo_Locale::getFormattedDateInternal(), where there is a switch statement you can read.

    Sorry to resurrect this thread. "picker" as in "Date Picker"?

    I need to input some data and I did set up a DatePicker from jQuery on my own, though if the hoks are already within XenForo it wuld be useless to make the user load more garbage then necessary ;)

    Yes, we already implement one. You can see it in the date field of the search popup.

    Using it is as simple as this:
    <input type="date" />
    The XenForo JavaScript framework will do the rest.
    KenSmith and Krochinzky like this.
