I added a date to the user profile form under admin/config/people/accounts/fields. The field is of type 'date', the widget of type 'select list' and I only collect year, month and day.
Without altering anything the date entry widget is shown on the form in the order year-month-day.
Since the order in the Netherlands should be day-month-year, I set out to change the date format by:
- Adding a new custom format d/m/Y under admin/config/regional/date-time/formats
- Create a new date type called 'test' and referencing the custom format from the previous step under admin/config/regional/date-time
- Changed the date display format to the 'test' type, under admin/config/people/accounts/display - press update and save the settings
In the date preview of admin/config/people/accounts/display, the date is shown as DD-MM-YYYY which is the format I want.
Now, going to the user profile page under user//edit, the date order shown as month-day-year.
I have tested this on a clean installation of Drupal 7.33 and the only module added is the date module 7.x-2.8.
How can I change the display order for this specific field?
