Hello. I'm looking at the php date function. easy enough.
Question:- where is the help page to tell us what all the various
letters mean ?
January (month in full)
Jan (small month ) etc...
i remember this from somewhere but i cant find it on the above page.
This is linked to from the 'format' parameter description.
There's a "Report a Bug" link at the top right of every manual page
(under the language select drop-down) which takes you to the docs issue
tracker. You can use this to suggest changes as well as reporting errors.
QUESTION: How do we ask / recommend that the page be amended ? -0 to
add all the letters & meanings, or add a link to the page that tells
us that ?
You can also submit a pull request with your suggested change. There's
instructions for setting up a local copy of the manual in the doc-base
repo readme: https://github.com/php/doc-base
Question- what are the letters for a full month, and big month ?
ADMIN:- can the 'help' email command be added at the bottom of each message ?
php-general-help@xxxxxxxxxxxxx - took me 20 mins to find / try it,
With regards to help using the mailing list, you can find this on the
php.net website by going to Get Involved => Mailing List (at the bottom
under "Useful links for developers"), then the command help is at the
bottom of the page. (I'm not a list admin or core developer, so can't
make any modifications). You can use GitHub search to find the file to
edit by searching for the function / method name or a piece of text on
the page ("date" brings up a lot of results, but if you search for the
function description "format a local time/date" instead, it's the ~5th
It's possible a list admin might not see your suggestion here. I would
suggest filing an issue at https://bugs.php.net/ (I don't think there's
a category for mailing list issues, but if you file it under General
Issues then one of the bug herders will make sure it gets assigned to
the right people)
