Yup that works perfectly, now just got to sort out the issue with the protx direct script adding a + symbol in place of symbols and passing the order description, never bloody finished is it!!!!!

Spoke to x-cart about it, told them that general opinion in the forum is that it is silly the way they display it at the moment and they agreed that in future releases it would be shown numerically (like they do on the acutal credit cards) RESULT!!!

Still Months in a recent 4.0.15 upgrade...

For anyone needing the change, it is only:

Find:
Code:
<TR valign="middle"> <TD align="right">{$lng.lbl_cc_expiration}</TD> <TD><FONT class="Star">{if $config.General.check_cc_number eq "Y" || $smarty.get.mode eq 'checkout'}*{else}{/if}</FONT></TD> <TD nowrap colspan="3"> {if #safeCCNum# eq ""} {html_select_date prefix="card_expire_" display_days=false end_year="+10" time=$userinfo.card_expire_time} {else} {#safeCCExp#} <INPUT type="hidden" name="card_expire" value="{#safeCCExp#}"> {/if} </TD> </TR>

Replace with this:
Code:
<TR valign="middle"> <TD align="right">{$lng.lbl_cc_expiration}</TD> <TD><FONT class="Star">{if $config.General.check_cc_number eq "Y" || $smarty.get.mode eq 'checkout'}*{else}{/if}</FONT></TD> <TD nowrap colspan="3"> {if #safeCCNum# eq ""} {html_select_date prefix="card_expire_" month_format="%m" display_days=false end_year="+5" time=$userinfo.card_expire_time} {else} {#safeCCExp#} <INPUT type="hidden" name="card_expire" value="{#safeCCExp#}"> {/if} </TD> </TR>

To make the credit card month drop-down menu extra clear, I prefer the format:
01 - Jan
02 - Feb
03 - Mar
etc.

If you would like this format, simply modify...
File: /main/register_ccinfo.tpl

And add: month_format="%m - %b"
to this part of the template code:

Code:
{html_select_date prefix="card_expire_" month_format="%m - %b" display_days=false end_year="+10" time=$userinfo.card_expire_time}

How do I get the year to read:

05
06
07
08
09

etc rather than the 4 digit default? I thought it might be the time attribute but it's already got time=$userinfo.card_expire_time and I'm not sure where $userinfo.card_expire_time is set?

Thanks

Dan

You will need to experiment, but here's some tips to help you get started... just as we used "%m" for the 2-digit month (see above posts), you will need to use "%y" for the 2-digit year (note: lower-case "y").

In the File: /main/register_ccinfo.tpl

You will probably need to specify the format, such as:
year_format="%y"
or
date_format="%y"

From the Smarty site:
%y - year as a decimal number without a century (range 00 to 99)
%Y - year as a decimal number including the century

Here's some Smarty links for more details:
http://smarty.php.net/manual/en/language.modifier.date.format.php
and
http://smarty.php.net/manual/en/language.function.html.select.date.php

Good luck and post your results here when you get a chance.

No, neither of those worked. I'm thinking I should actually be adjusting the time attribute as it says "timestamp/YYYY-MM-DD" but I'm not sure if I can replace $userinfo.card_expire_time...

Anyone know of a way how I can change it to the months by numbers instead???

I contacted support with the same problem & received the following reply:

To implement this you should modify the 'skin1/main/register_ccinfo.tpl' file. Find the following fragments:

a.
---------------------------------------
{html_select_date prefix="card_valid_from_" display_days=false start_year="-5" end_year="+4"}
---------------------------------------

b.
---------------------------------------
{html_select_date prefix="card_expire_" display_days=false end_year="+10" time=$userinfo.card_expire_time}
---------------------------------------

and replace it with this codes:

a.
---------------------------------------
{html_select_date prefix="card_valid_from_" display_days=false start_year="-5" end_year="+4" month_format="%m"}
---------------------------------------

b.
---------------------------------------
{html_select_date prefix="card_expire_" display_days=false end_year="+10" time=$userinfo.card_expire_time month_format="%m"}
---------------------------------------

It worked for me.
