|Question||How do you change the date formating from dd/MM/yyyy to MM/dd/yyyy?|
The following work on XWiki Enterprise 1.2 M2:
After this is done, you can easily use Object editor to GLOBALLY change all the the date format.
The easy part: Open the class editor Change class to XWiki.XWikiPreferences Add new property Name: dateformat Type: String class Select Object editor Choose XWiki.XWikiPreferences: XWiki.DefaultSkin Scroll to the bottom and fill out the dateformat field with: MM/dd/yyyy The hard part: Since a lot of the date formating is hardcoded into the skins, you will have to go through all the .vm file in the skins folder. Edit the $xwiki.formatDate(xxx, "dd/MM/yyyy") to $xwiki.formatDate(xxx)
