12 Hour Clock
« on: October 09, 2011, 01:25:31 PM »
Hey guys, on this forum, is there a way to use 12 hour clock time instead of 24 hour clock time?

ie. 2:00pm instead of 14:00.

Goto the User Control Panel, then board preferences. You'll need to edit your date format. Put an 'A' or 'a' at the end of the text field after "My date format:". The case of the 'a' determines if the AM or PM is upper or lower-case. You could also use a default setting from the drop down box.
Here's an example of a custom time format, and it's the one I use:
Code: [Select]
l, F d, Y h:iA
This code produces this time format:
Code: [Select]

The codes are explained on this page.

I looked at what your current setting is so I know what the issue was.

Thanks, from that page I switched the H to an h which is 12 hour, then added the A for AM/PM. That was bothering me for a long time.

I had sorta skimmed over and saw the date format before, but didn't realize that changed the time format too.
