How do i change date format
« on: August 18, 2009, 05:04:01 pm »

Hi,i just installed VL 6 Standard and i noticed all the date stamps are in the format YYYY-DD-MM.How do i change it system wide so it is MM-DD-YYYY.I am in the USA if it makes a difference.
So far i like VL and haven't had to many problems.Keep up the good work..Thanks in advance for the help.

edit:I mostly figured it out.VL uses the English(British) format,since it is from Canada.Anyways does anyone know how to change the date format code that is used in Firefox?

Have you checked what language you use Firefox in? I think that makes all the difference for date formats. So in your case, I guess setting it to EN-US will help.
