Custom date/time formats?


#1

I can’t figure out how to format variables to custom
date/time formats. In a template, I have:

item.added.to_formatted_s(:format=>"%Y")

and rather than the year, it outputs:

Mon Oct 31 20:14:14 MST 2005

Thanks for any help!

ActiveSupport::CoreExtensions::Time::Conversions::DATE_FORMATS.update(:format
=> ‘%Y’)

item.added.to_s(:format)
