We’re using the Birth date field but need to only show the Month and Day due to privacy concerns. Can you point me at any documentation allowing us to create a custom date format? I’m a PHP developer and I’ve used WordPress filters and actions if that is what’s needed. Thanks!
Also, I need to show only the year for the Membership Date, otherwise I would just change the settings for date to F j instead of F j, Y.
Navigate to the Connections Settings admin page and click the Display tab. The date format can be adjusted to omit the year.
Hope this helps!
Sorry, I had the page open already so I did not see your follow up up reply.
In this case, I recommend hooking in the to
cn_output_date filter. It passes four attributes.
$html:: This is the html of the date row. Return the HTML as you need with the altered date format. Refer to the
../wp-content/plugins/connections/templates/entry/dates/dates-hcard.phpfile for the HTML markup.
$date:: This is a cnEntry_Date object. Calling
$date->getDate()returns a DateTime object. Calling
$date->getType()will return the date type.
$entry:: This is the current entry.
$atts:: The current shortcode options.
With a filter applied to
cn_output_date you’ll be able to check for the date type and alter the format as needed.
Hope this helps!
