The important dates suggested by the system to the user do not match the deadlines defined in the configuration

My OJS installation is suggesting dates to the user that do not meet those deadlines defined in the settings. Look:

The above configuration defines the deadline of one week for acceptance or rejection of the evaluation, in addition to four weeks for the evaluation work.


Although the date is in Portuguese-BR, the journal’s default language, the suggested dates are the current date for both cases!

Thanks in advance! I hope anyone can help us.

In response to my own question:
I searched for a solution that came to be just my editing of file to Brazillian pattern of dates.

Undoing the changes I made, the problem was solved.
To avoid more problems, I will mantain that in English:

date_format_trunc = “%m-%d”
date_format_short = “%Y-%m-%d”
date_format_long = “%B %e, %Y”
datetime_format_short = “%Y-%m-%d %I:%M %p”
datetime_format_long = “%B %e, %Y - %I:%M %p”
time_format = “%I:%M %p”

Thanks anyway.
Maybe it can be helpful for someone.

Hi @Roger_Santos_Ferreir,

Thanks for following up – this might be related to Changing date formats in can lead to misparsed dates · Issue #2689 · pkp/pkp-lib · GitHub.
