I am making a History site, dates are a problem here due to the limit of dates before 1970, is there any soution within ez to add dates older than 1970.

Hi Jorge,

the birthday datatype will do the trick:

Hi Ekkehard,

We should push to make this part of the core eZ Product. In Social Media Terms the birthday is quite important.

This is certainly something we want to address in the core of eZ Publish as well. A new or updated datatype built around the new DateTime class in PHP 5.2.x allows us to gracefully use a much larger date span, and we will get time zone calculations for free.

We have to wait until we bump the requirements of eZ Publish to PHP 5.2.x though, before we can add this.

I thought 5.2.x is already a must for ez 4 because the current ez components are requiring php > 5.2.0 ?
