On my ENQUIRY FORM I have two questions that require a date, so I use the predefined -date selector and as suggested, as I am in the UK, change MM/dd to dd/MM which has worked fine for over a year. Today the form somehow changed and starting throwing up errors that fields hadn’t been filled in etc. After much reading on the forum I decided to re-build the form

Unfortunately, having fixed the errors I find that I can only change the date back to the UK format on the first predefined date selector used in my question “Date of OUTGOING travel” as below:

<a href="#" onClick=",'anchor22',’dd/MM/yyyy'); return false;" title=",'anchor22',’dd/MM/yyyy'); return false;" name="anchor22" id="anchor22"><img src="" alt="Select Date" border="0" style="vertical-align: bottom;" /></a>
<div id="calendar" style="position:absolute;visibility:hidden;background-color:white;layer-background-color:white;"></div>

However, the second time I use the predefined date selector in for the question “Date or Return travel” it uses different code:

$("#q45").datepicker({ dateFormat: 'mm-dd-yy', changeMonth: true, changeYear: true });

How do I change this to UK date FORMAT?

If it helps I am entering the code into a 1and1 placeholder in their webbuilder


since posting the above I found that in my user information I could change the settings to the UK. Unfortunately now that I have done that, the code for both calendars has changed and I now get error messages saying the dates have NOT been filled in when they have - HELP!

We have made significant changes to the calender system. What you need to do:

1. Remove existing calender questions from your forms.
2. Update your data format setting under 'My User Information'
3. Create new questions. The new questions that are created will use the proper formatting.
4. Get new form code and paste it to your website.
