  • DateTime::createFromFormat requires the second parameter to be a timestamp and ACF returns an already formatted date that depends on the return/display format you’ve set for the field. You can’t use this function.

    // returns unformatted date
    $date = get_field('jour_de_levenement', false, false);
    // convert it to a time
    $time = strtotime($date);
    <span class="day"><?php echo date('d', $time); ?></span>
    <span class="month"><?php echo date('F', $time); ?></span>
    <span class="year"><?php echo date('Y', $time); ?></span>
