I am new to this forum but not a complete newbie. I've been lurking in IAP for a long time and stumbled to this "close to home" forum recently.
Right, as to remove the “two post anti-spam limit” and actually ask a question…
How do I get the UK date format on posts? I have searched the topic but could not find anything…
I hope I can get to User CP soon...

Hi ZT welcome home ...I have tried to do this as it annoys me too. Jim no doubt will tell you whether or not it can be done when he comes on line.

Thanks Edlea.
If the date format is not under UserCP, which I cannot access for now, then it should be under vBulletin Administration vBulletin Manual (http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/vboptions_group_datetime).
Will wait for Jim, I assume site owner & Admin.
Regards.

I've just realised that I cannot edit the post, no grace period I guess :whistling:
Oh, well, another post then to thank bellringer for a warm welcome.

I think you can only edit a post before someone else has answered it

Welcome by the way

You may well be right

Examples:
US Format (e.g., 04-25-98): m-d-y
Expanded US Format (e.g., April 25th, 1998): F jS, Y
European Format (e.g., 25-04-98): d-m-y
Expanded European Format (e.g., 25th April 1998): jS F Y

Welcome to the forums ZT .. :thumbs:

I hope this is what you are meaning ..
Go into the UserCP click on General Settings on the left hand side, scroll down to where it says Date & Time Options Time Zone: and choose the board time there ... :thumbs:
