Home Forums Backend Issues (wp-admin) ACF Date Picker — Format Reply To: ACF Date Picker — Format

  • I finally found a solution. When creating the custom fields, make sure you choose the Ymd return format. With other return formats, this does not work.

    Then in the code, get the field (or subfield, in my case): $date = get_sub_field('date');.

    Convert using PHP’s DateTime: $eventDate = new DateTime($date);

    And display using your required format, for example: $eventDate->format('j');

    Hope this helps!
