I am trying to do this also. I have it set up as 2014-02-01 and then next to that, attempting to make it show 01-02-2014.
I pasted the php at top of page, and then where I want the date to appear I have this on the page, where the first line is the default and the second line is my attempt.
Exp: <?php echo $row_consumersoffer['cat_coupon_expdate']; ?>
<?php echo i8_formatMySQLDate($row_consumeroffer['cat_coupon_expdate']); ?>
This admin field for the date is managed in DataAssist using the calendar function for the client to use. In the admin, it shows the date as 2/01/2014 but on the display page, using bindings to pull the date into the page, it reverts.
Any guidance most appreciated.
