    check post #7 out in this thread:

    i had to play with it a bit until it worked for me. I think under the presets for short, medium, etc, i had to plug my new format into all of them to get it to work. of course, maybe i just hit the wrong one a couple times in a row.

    Thanks for the link, eric! I didn't know I could have the date without downloading something else.

    no problem! it's nice to have up there.
    i also like how i can change the date to be in proper day month year order.
    would be nice to have an option for julian date next to the gregorian date too.

    mine - for reference.
