Changing date format
« on: August 14, 2013, 06:42:50 AM »
    OK, changed the file you recommended and it didn't work, date is still the same.

Any ideas where I can change the way the date displays on the site, I want it to look like this:  08/13/2013 instead of  13/08/2013?

date format takes from languages/english.xml file. key: date_format_short.
You can set your own format. See details here
but... it's off topic... create a new, please.

mmm... what about changing this key in system->localisation->language_definitions?
Other way ....You can purge table language_definition and clear cache too to see effect.

OK, this key system->localisation->language_definitions was already changed in admin ... sorry but I don't know what purge means, how do I do that?

go to system localization language definitions.
on mine it is on page 15 of 361.   

change date_format_short from d/m/Y to m/d/Y

should do the trick  :)
