International Date-Time Format

from the from the Newbies-are-having-a-tough-time dept. dept.
Hallo out there,

sorry I am bothering You with this; Im new to Zope and Python, and the inner workings are not so familiar to me.

My Problem:
After successfully installing Squisdot on my Zope-Site, I tried to translate all text to german.
The problem now is the date format, as it appears for instance in <dtml-var date_posted>.

I tried to change this in /lib/python/Products/Squishdot/Posting.py
where I found a format string '%A %B %d, @I:M%p'

(format needed is DD.MM.YY, hh:mm)

However changing this format string caused no results, so I think there are additional steps to take. Unfortunately, I found nothing in the docs.

Perhaps you can give me a hint where to look for enlightenment...

Best regards,


As far as I got, I love Squisdot, seems to be a very fine product!

    Use <dtml-var "date_posted('%d/%m/%Y')"> that should do it.
