Topic: Jalali calendar

How can I use FA with Jalali calendar ?
Is any way to implement and use Jalali calendar with FA?

Here we found the jalali calendar plugin support for WordPress :


Re: Jalali calendar


Look into the file, config.php, in the root of the FA installation

About line 132 you will the following lines:

    /* Date systems. 0 = traditional, 1 = Jalali used by Iran, nabour countries, Afghanistan and some other Central Asian nations,
    2 = Islamic used by other arabic nations. 3 = traditional, but where non-workday is Friday and start of week is Saturday */
    $date_system = 0;

Set the $date_system = 1;

This will implement the Jalali calender smile

Thank you Joe!

But the Solar Hijri year begins about 21 March of each Gregorian year and ends about 20 March of the next year.
Modern calendar: Solar Hijri (SH)

Solar Hijri algorithmic calendar

Re: Jalali calendar

Have any idea to solve this problem, I will be very grateful.

Re: Jalali calendar

I must have some help from arabic developers. Will someone try to help us. The algoritms for the arabic calendars are inside the /includes/date_functions.inc .

Re: Jalali calendar

The best (and, indeed, the only reasonable) way would be to treat it as another date format. There is absolutely no reason to change how it's stored internally.
