Hi,

I have the below JavaScript that renders the system date time in the format: "28 January 2013, 10:56 PM". How can I alter this script to output the format as: "28th January 2013, 22:56"

<td class="homepage-date" valign="top">
                                        <script type="text/javascript">
                                            var months=new Array(13);
                                            months[1]="January";
                                            months[2]="Febuary";
                                            months[3]="March";
                                            months[4]="April";

LeaKim971,

Thanks for your code, looks great. However, is it also possible to get "28th January 2013, 20:49"? i.e. 28th

Thanks

But obviously "th" won't always be the case, i.e. 1st, 2nd, 3rd etc...

Thanks.

so replace line 20 by the following :
if(date==1) xx = "st "
else if(date==2) xx = "nd "
else if(date==3) xx = "rd "
// etc...
else xx = "th ";
        document.write(date + xx + lmonth + " " + year + ",");
