Changing the date format

Is it possible to have the option to change the date formatting? For example, "Jan 22, 2017" and "22th Jan 2017".

    +1 for that. Changing the "am/pm" scheme to "Uhr" or something would also be super nice.

    Hello Luis!

    Thanks for raising this idea.

    We are sending it to our technical team and we will let you know when we start developing it.

    My wish since I started using Ai1ec! There is a lot of different dateformats out there, but would it be possible to follow the standard users have made in the WP Core settings? I know that the label in Agenda view might be difficult to change. Most wanted on Single Event pages.

    This is a crucial function for international users. Please implement this asap! The suffix "Uhr" for german/austrian/swiss region would be sweet.

    Good idea. It would be great if you could also use a 24h clock!

    As commented by some others before. This would be very nice for international uses, and in most european countries as well.

    It is a bit weird that you can actually set the date format. But in for example the shortcode generated agenda view, this is completely ignored.

    And I dont know how you guys do it, but it should not be to hard, its only the visual side.


    There are so many different options that should make this quite easily changable.

    Example of the very basic php date functions....
    echo date("j M", strtotime($date));


    But, is this still being planned...?

    I can not believe, that this fantastic calendar software is not able to post dates in the international format!!
