{DefaultDateFormat} in configure says $day $month $year. Yet DISPLAYTIME renders 2023-09-28 - 18:03, as does GMTIME: 2023-09-28 - 18:03.

Either the configure settings are wrong, or the variables read the setting wrong.

-- TWiki:Main/ArthurClemens - 27 Feb 2008

The {DefaultDateFormat} is a Date format. Not a time format. That is how the feature was specified.

See TWiki:Codev/UseIsoDates for the agreed spec.

unless I misunderstand the report the code works as specified and I would not want to see the default behavior change so we no longer have the time per default.

It may just be a doc issue. But I find Formatted time - either GMT or Local server time, depending on setting in configure. Same format qualifiers as %GMTIME% confusing. There is no time setting in configure.

And Date format defined as {DefaultDateFormat} in configure then appears to refer to the date part, not the time part.
