PKP Bugzilla – Bug 7926
Date fields are not localized

We are moving to Git Issues for bug tracking in future releases. During transition, content will be in both tools. If you'd like to file a new bug, please create an issue.
In forms where a date is required, [month] - [day] - [year] fields are not localized.
a) Month names are always shown in English.
b) Fields order is MDY while in other languages is DMY.
A first review of code drives me to an smarty-pkp function called:
This function does the job and need to be reimplemented taking in consideration the locale of the user.
For a) Month names must be in a translation file.
An alternative solution for b) is hidding fields behind a popup calendar.
To reproduce, just visits http://yourMagazine/manager/createAnnouncement with a lang diferent than English.
Not confirmed, but I'm pretty sure this issue "also affects" OJS (2.x versions).
Probably is not as annoying in OMP as far it includes popup calendars.
