Dear Minesh

This I do have like this, but on this link: hidden link

On the first column, the 4th line, it's still Mrz. This is because I do have there the Toolset short code for this filed I use.

It's the "start date of any tour. So any other custom short code I can't use there, or I just do a new custom code.

Do You understand what I am talking about? In this first column, I do use the Toolset short code, and this gives me an Mrz - and not a Mär.




Languages: English (English )

Timezone: Asia/Kolkata (GMT+05:30)

I've replaced the existing shortcode:

[types field='tour-date-field' style='text' format='d. M Y'][/types]


[tourenddate tourdate='[types field='tour-date-field' style='text' format='Y-m-d'][/types]' type="date"]

I can see now it shows month name as: Mär
=> hidden link


Dear Minesh

But this short code don't gives the start date out!

I might need to add another custom function with a short code short code.

I added now another function, where it shows me now the start date:

function custom_tourstart_date( $atts ) {
    $adate = '';
	$atype = '';
	// Attributes
	$atts = shortcode_atts(
			'tourdate' => 'today',
			'type' => '',
    $adate = $atts['tourdate'];
    $atype = $atts['type'];
    if ((ICL_LANGUAGE_CODE=='en') && ($atype=='day')) {
	$startdate = date('l', strtotime($adate));
	else if ((ICL_LANGUAGE_CODE=='en') && ($atype=='date')) {
	$startdate = date('d. M Y', strtotime($adate));
	else if ((ICL_LANGUAGE_CODE=='de') && ($atype=='day')) {
      setlocale(LC_ALL, 'de_DE.UTF-8'); 
      $startdate = strftime('%A', strtotime($adate)); 
	else if ((ICL_LANGUAGE_CODE=='de') && ($atype=='date')) {
      setlocale(LC_TIME, 'de_DE.UTF-8'); 
      $startdate = strftime('%e. %b %Y', strtotime($adate)); 
      $startdate = str_replace("Mrz","Mär",$startdate); 
	return $startdate;
add_shortcode( 'tourstartdate', 'custom_tourstart_date' );



My issue is resolved now. Thank you!
