Hi,
it seems that there is something missing in one of ur templates.
U should take a look at ur msg file (hidden directory -> templates -> i18n -> english -> msg) and look for the following string:
welcome_message:		Welcome <b>{VAR: user_login}</b>, your last visit was on {DATE: last_login %a, %d %B %G %H:%M}
I suspect the "%" is missing in the string.
HTH
bye Ken

Thanks for the response

here is that section and it appears correct
welcome_message: Welcome <b>{VAR: user_login}</b>, your last visit was on {DATE: last_login %a, %d %B %G %H:%M}


But it is not just that place where the year appears as just the "G" - all of the dates appear that way.

And they used to be correct....and I haven't changed anything except the css file...and the server time settings in global settings ( i've tried a few different server time settings and all give me the "G" for the year )

I just installed FUD yesterday afternoon and all worked fine, even the year.

Very unusual, could you please tell which version of PHP you are running.

I want to get this fixed because this is exactly the forum software that I was looking for:

PHP, mysql, with the threaded/flat view, AND the look and feel of vBulletin/YABB SE/wwwthreads/dcforum etc

I was actually refering to the version of your PHP.
You can find it out by going to the "System Info" admin panel.

Also could you please tell me what did you change your date settings to in the admin control panel.

Thanks.

Can you please try to following code:


<?php
echo "Normal Date: ".date("Y")."<br>\n";
echo "LOCALE Date: ".strftime("%G")."<br>\n";

echo "<br>\nWith changed TZ<br>\n";

putenv("TZ=America/Catamarca");

echo "Normal Date: ".date("Y")."<br>\n";
echo "LOCALE Date: ".strftime("%G")."<br>\n";

?>


I suspect the problem occured because BSDI doesn't support certain timezones listed in the forum and when you changed your timezone to that one the year got messed up. I will try to see if I can find the list of timezones supported by BSDI.


If you can, could you do execute "ls -lia /usr/share/zoneinfo" and send me the output.

Thanks.

Finally tracked down the time problem. Apparently some C libraries do not support the %G option for the strftime function, which formats time according to locale settings. To avoid this problem I changed %G to %Y, which should solve the problem.

Okie... since A LOT of files are affected the best way to fix the problem is to follow those 3 steps:

1) Go to the forum's data directory
2) run perl -p -i -e 's/%G/%Y/g' template/tmpl/*.tmpl template/src/*.t template/i18n/english/msg
3) "Rebuild Templates" using the admin control panel

The 1.9.8 forum that will come out today will already have this fix in it.

Great Smile

Apparently strftime() function although supported by all C libraries has some flags that are only supported by recent C libraries. One of the "unsupported" flags was "%G" which appears not to work on old libc and we've also used "%T" in 2 places. %T works on all unices but not on Windows, I've fixed this oversight last night after reading strftime() docs more closely.

Definately, it is a good thing you've come across this bug and even a better thing another person had come across it in another OS. It certainly was a very hard to track down bug. But in the end it worth finding out about Smile
