to give an answer:
- do you have screenshots about the date settings (backend)
So do I have to change it directly in the override file in order to have a short date on the table list and long date on the event details page?
i would say no..
the overrides will work in the front but the function for the date in the tables are calling
echo JemOutput::formatShortDateTime($row->dates, $row->times,
so the date you entered for short should be displayed in the front.
in the backend the date within the events-view is calling
JemOutput::formatLongDateTime($row->dates, null, $row->enddates, null);
this is a different function and is looking at a different setting.
within event-view we're calling
echo JemOutput::formatLongDateTime($this->item->dates, $this->item->times,$this->item->enddates, $this->item->endtime
so basicly the event-view(front) + date in the events-view (backend) are looking at the setting for the long format.
but as you're pointing out that it doens't display the year i'm wondering what's happening. unfortunately we can't pass a custom format to those functions as that might have been very helpfull
hmm, will test it out somewhere this week.
