Make time/date format independent of 'locale' setting


#1

On a European based internationally targeted forum we’re using the default ‘en’ locale to set the language to English.
Date and time presentation seems to be fixed to US format. I don’t really care about the date presentation as it is clear enough but the am/pm time presentation is not commonly used in Europe (except for the U.K.).
Unless I’ve missed something it doesn’t seem possible to set the date and time format independent of the locale setting.

Maybe it could even be specified per-user? I’m used to user interfaces being in English, but would really like to use proper date time formatting.

Replying to this ANCIENT topic, yes you can change the default globals formats, see:

Per user would requires a custom theme component, but is technically doable.
