Which date formats does FooEvents support?

FooEvents uses the same date format that you’ve set for your WordPress site under Settings > General.

FooEvents supports the default WordPress date formats as well as some custom formats. If you are experiencing an issue where your events do not show up on the correct date(s) in your calendar, this might be happening because you are using an unsupported date format.

Here is a list of date formats that FooEvents currently supports:

This article explains what each character means. Please get in touch if you would like to request a custom date format that isn’t currently supported.

Please note that after you’ve changed the date format, you will have to edit each event, then select the event date(s) again and click on “Update” before the date format change will be applied. New tickets that are emailed or existing tickets that are re-sent after this change will display the date in the new format.
