Re: [RFC] Calendars support?

Oleg, you latest changes to date (using IntlDateFormatter::LONG) look good.

Re: [RFC] Calendars support?

Thanks. Custom formats should be possible now. Users opinion is needed re UI and the default formats list (which looks too long for me).

  1. definitely agree on the need to prune that list – as it is, I nearly always end up customising the <txp:posted /> and <txp:modified />@ format. Not sure what to recommend, though. The since format is a keeper I think, others dunno yet?
  2. is customising the format fully reflected in the <select /> ? If I put %x, I get Aug 13, 10.01 am in that pop up, I would expect 13 August 2021 (PHP docs, and Public side outputs that).
  3. I need to thing a little about the UI.

Sure, plus 3-4 formats containing main % patterns, for illustration.

You need to save prefs before a format gets updated by PHP. Doing it in JS would be not reliable, and sending an AJAX request on each key stroke is too expensive.

Also note that formats are displayed in the user’s language, that can be different from the site language.

Sure, saving I did, and left the tab, and closed the browser window since this AM. Look (screen grab)

Re: [RFC] Calendars support?

Funny. Duplicate date outputs are suppressed, even when they are generated by different formats. Will fix Should be fixed, thanks!

Re: [RFC] Calendars support?

Looks better now !

–^–

A question – some of the pre-filled/suggested date formats have %Oe for “day”. what does the O mean here? Suppressing white-space ?

since already mentioned, plus a shorthand format such as x (date) or c (date and time). These seem to localise well. And then one more custom configuration as illustration.

UI wise, the input=text input needs at least an aria-label for accessibility and clarity. A real HTML <label for="" /> might be ideal, but then, space/clutter/… and maybe one of the “size” classes (.input-medium) although I leave that to Mr Wareham.
