    Hello,
    How are you doing?
    I'm desperate and need your help !
    I have set a jscript on my site:
    1. But the dates are in:
    month.day.Year
    and i'll like to have:
    day.month.Year
    2. Months are in english and i'd like them in german:
    January = Januar
    can you please help me with the code?
    Thank you again.

    Here's the code:

    Location:
    Southern Germany
    Change
    PHP:
    $date="$_POST[dateyear]-$_POST[datemonth]-$_POST[dateday]";
    to
    PHP:
    $date="$_POST[dateday].$_POST[datemonth].$_POST[dateyear]";
    And change very occurence of
    PHP:
    date("F d, Y",
    to
    PHP:
    date("d.m.Y",
    Also change
    PHP:
    date("Y-m-d")
    to
    PHP:
    date("d.m.Y")
    wherever you find it.

    To use the german names of the months, change them there:
    PHP:
    $months=array('','January','February','March','April','May','June','July','August',
        
    'September','October','November','December');
    As last step change
    PHP:
    $parts=explode("-",$value);
        
        
    $day=$parts[2]+0;
        
    $month=$parts[1]+0;
        
    $year=$parts[0];
    to
    PHP:
    $parts=explode(".",$value);
        
        
    $day=$parts[0]+0;
        
    $month=$parts[1]+0;
        
    $year=$parts[2];
