Whenever you update Docman it is really annoying that the date format is reverted back to Month, Day, Year (unless of course you live in America!). So how do i change it to Day, Month, Year?

First of all install the brilliant extplorer and if you have admintools installed, make sure you create a server exception of administrator/components/com_extplorer/fetchscript.php and then save your htaccess file. Extplorer will then work.

Once in, go to Components > com_docman > themes > default > Language > en-GB.php

and edit line 26 that says:

define('_DML_TPL_DATEFORMAT_LONG', '%m/%d/%Y %H:%M');
define('_DML_TPL_DATEFORMAT_SHORT', '%m/%d/%Y');

Change to the following:

define('_DML_TPL_DATEFORMAT_LONG', '%d/%m/%Y %H:%M');
define('_DML_TPL_DATEFORMAT_SHORT', '%d/%m/%Y');
