  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 3.2

Looks like the transient may have expired and we're doing a time conversion on false/0.

printf( __('Last checked on %1$s at %2$s.'), date_i18n( get_option( 'date_format' ) ), date_i18n( get_option( 'time_format' ) ) );

Their is no transient or I'm missing something?

Reverting [17747] solves the issue.

The current time is now missing, the same behaviour is on options-general.php.

Timestamp is missing.

Seems to me that the question is whether date_i18n() should be returning a result based on the current datetime/timestamp if no $unixtimestamp is provided.

If the answer is yes, then the attached patch seems to be the proper route.

If the answer is "that's not what this function is for", then that's another story altogether, and the originating code should likely be grabbing a timestamp elsewhere first.

My bad, the problem is not timestamp. gmdate and date take local time if timestamp is not provided.

The second parameter in date and gmdate is type casted internally to long integer. Hence false becomes zero and the wrong time is generated

Try this:

echo gmdate( $dateformat );
echo gmdate( $dateformat, false );

I still think passing current timestamp seems proper rather than

if ( $i ) {
   $datemonth = $wp_locale->get_month( $datefunc( 'm', $i ) );
} else {
   $datemonth = $wp_locale->get_month( $datefunc( 'm' ) );

The diff in attachment:17278.diff fixed the issue on my local install of the latest trunk.

On a ticket related note, should the Summery be updated to reflect usage of the date_i18n() function returns 1970-01-01 instead of 'Updater.....' since this is an issue in the root function, not just the updater? Might help avoid duplicates.

[17747] - removed far too much code from what I can see.

This also affects options > general

#15 @westi

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from reviewing to closed

In [17841]:

Restore the functionality of date_i18n to pre [17747] so that is works without a provided timestamp again. Fixes #17278.

For reference the commit that introduced the compat code - [8199]
