I can get it to save if I edit Source:

RE: How to change email template date format

But even just editing and saving after that causes an error.

It looks like there may be an issue with the editor.

One alternative you could look at is using a file instead of the in-built editor – available under “Create Template From”.

Hi,

For an individual field, you can use this:

?string("dd/MM/yyyy")

Alternatively, adding this at the tope of your template should set the default string format for dates:

<#setting date_format="d MMM yyyy">

Thanks,

Chris

Did you type ${transaction.trandate?string(“dd/MM/yyyy”)} or copy it from here?

If you copied it then it can sometimes bring across additional formatting, etc.

Apologies – could you try this:

?string["dd/MM/yyyy"]

i.e. square braces. I copied the code from some documentation but missed that.

Thanks Chris for response!

But with  this ${transaction.trandate?string(“dd/MM/yyyy”)}

I am getting following error

The template cannot be saved due to the following errors:
Syntax error in template “content” in line 3, column 46:. Encountered “style”, but was expecting one of these patterns:.
<TERMINATING_EXCLAM>
<DOT_DOT_LESS>.
“*” “?”. “??” “!”.
“T”. “(“.”)”.
Parse exception during template merging.

Are you able to share a larger section of your template?

I think something unexpected might have copied across. Could you please view the Source.

But when I simply print {transaction.trandate} it prints properly. I am not getting why error comes while converting.
