    It should use Time Format defined/selected within language, e.g. /admin.php?languages/english-uk.2/edit

    Posting the same comment won't get the feature added any quicker...

    It is impossible to use the time format defined by the language.

    I'm not confused and I don't drive :D And what do you mean by "unlike the mainland"?

    In this case, could you, please, add option for this?

    Its a simple preference, already defined at board level. The mod ideally would adhere to that existing preference.

    How come? There's a few xF helpers for date / time... I'd assume they were fairly reusable?

    The library doesn't support the same syntax as PHP.

    I would like to see the option for both formats but understand if it's not possible at the present time.

    I can't understand why all programmers don't give this 12 am/pm and 24H as one fine options. One vote for 24H from me along side with 12 am/pm for US users.

    To vote for this suggestions you've to Like the first post of this thread.

    Military time is a little different from standard 24hours written notation.

    24h format is widely used in the world (and growing in UK too, like train timetable) and I hope it will possible to use it in the near future with "Events" as this is one of the things that halted me from use it (and buy additional licenses).

    Some info here:
    24-hour clock - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Date and time notation in Asia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Date and time notation in Europe - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Date and time representation by country - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    IMHO The thing is... customers are not only from USA, CAN and UK.
    Without 24hours written notation a big part of them are excluded.

    I gotta say, I think you're exaggerating this.

    No, you are mistaken. There are plenty of people who do not understand what AM or PM is.

    Nope, we don't really use AM / PM in The Netherlands. As alfa1 is saying, a lot of people here don't know what AM or PM is.

    And a lot of people don't use a 24 hour clock

    Hey, I know.. let's just remove the ability to put a time on completely and stop confusing everyone :p

    So it's better exclude possible customers than include them? :rolleyes:

    IMHO who buy a license is expecting that in an events add on where dates and times are very important all the main date/time writing standard are supported and not only the anglophone's. As a customer I would like to know if this add on is going to support 24h or not so I can choose to continue to follow it or not.

    The point I was making with my sarcastic response was that you're going on and on about something Jeremy has already addressed.

    Do you really think keeping on about it will change things?

    Well Jeremy - As you see - we're soon many customer who like to see some fix to the hardcoded words and this 24 hours 'issue' .. I hope you can come up with something - I have also disabled it for the moment because my users are asking question about that time stuff..
