Time Format in Global Settings

I'd prefer to see the time on the forum as 24-hour, but I can't change the format in Global Settings. The change appears to be accepted when I click 'Submit', but the format on forum pages stays the same and when I go back to the settings page the entry has reverted to AM/PM.

Other global settings can be changed OK.

Any clues?

Thanks in advance. :)

Re: Time Format in Global Settings

Within the User CP, go to the setting that says "My Time Format" and select 'Custom'. In the format string, change the lower-case 'g' to 'G' and then submit. Go to the forums and refresh the window if necessary.

At least that worked for me.

Glad that worked for you. I settled on the same string you did.
