Localization of Dashboard Widget Info

  1. Guys,

    Is it possible to format the info in the dashboard widget, so it displays the "Submitted on" info according to how you have set the Time Zone, Date Format and Time Format under "General Settings" in WordPress.

    I live in the UK, so prefer DD/MM/YYYY format for dates.

    I also have my Time Zone set to London.

    Also, am I right to assume that it is picking up the time from my web host's (Hostgator) server in the US?

    I submitted a form today (06/09/2009 at 11:18 UK) and in the dashboard it displays as Submitted on: 2009/09/06 at 05:09

    I know that displaying the info as is, will confuse any clients I have.

    At present, I have to rely on the notification mails for the correct time.

  2. Hey Joseph, I will look into the date/timee localization for you. I'm not 100% sure how the date/time is determined, i'll have to get with our lead developer on that to clarify.

  4. Joseph,
    You bring up a valid point. We will look into having the date follow the configured format and time zone of WP. Currently, it does use the time of your web server and the format is set to yyyy/mm/dd. It will probably won't make it in the next release we are currently wrapping up, but we will try to include in the next one.
