Date datatype formating

Tuesday 20 May 2003 6:42:34 am - 4 replies

In a template I currently use
{attribute_view_gui attribute=$content_version.data_map.dateline}
Which produces 2002.12.20 or whatever the user placed in the fields.

My question is can I format these to look like
Friday 20 December 2002

I tried
{attribute_view_gui attribute=$content_version.data_map.dateline.data_int|l10n(date)}
and similar variables without luck.

Can anyone help?

Thanks for the suggestion but it didn't work. I tried lots of variables of your suggestion but without result. It usually doesn't show anything or simply outputs the same numerical dates.

Still open for suggsetions though happy.gif Emoticon

as i unserstand from ur 1st post, that date format what ur have is 2002.12.20, then u will need to convert it to timestamp to use this option in the template language !
try this

{$content_version.data_map.published|datetime(custom,"%l %d %F %Y"blunk.gif Emoticon}

if u got as u want, then ok, if not then u need to translate the date in the local files/ files maybe !

Thanks for everyones help. For anybody with similar challenges the solutiuon ended up looking like this:

{section show=count($content_version.data_map.dateline.data_int)|gt(1)}
