Date swapped for translated Date Picker?

  • Hi,

    I stored a date in an ACF Date Picker field as follows: 12-06-2016 (DD-MM-YYYY). In the front-end I want to return it like TUE 21 06, but translated? Should be Di 21 06.
    . This

    <?php $date = get_field('datum', false, false); $date = new DateTime($date);echo $date->format('D d M'); ?>

    … Returns TUE 21 6 and is exactly what I wanted. Only thing is, this isn’t in Dutch, but how do I use the translation without messing up the date format? The ‘translations’ code mentioned here didn’t work for me as it returned only incorrect dates.

  • Hi @avwijk

    Could you please try the following code?

    $date = get_field('datum', false, false);
    $date = new DateTime($date);
    $dateformatstring = 'D d M';
    $unixtimestamp = $date->getTimestamp();
    echo date_i18n($dateformatstring, $unixtimestamp);

    Thanks 🙂
