Thanks Andreas - so there is no way to set a date format at an intermediate layer so that all dates are rendered a certain way without string formatting? Am I naive in thinking this could possibly be done at the db adapter level?
Thanks

'international' only affects the format for parsing dates as far as I
can recall. Using strftime() gives you full control over the output
format. Your application should not rely on the default format. If you
need a custom date output format then define it explicitly in your
application.

Hello all

Hoping there is a quick fix for this - I'm trying to change how Zope
formats dates. I want dd/mm/yyyy but Zope is forcing yyyy-mm-dd. I've
changed the format in zope.conf to 'international' but this makes no
difference. I know dates can be formatted at the front end (i.e. fmt=)
but it would be really useful to have Zope sort this out for me without
having to do any string formatting. Any ideas?

Thanks
Richard
