- How do I format the date and time to display it on the frontend?
The plugin saves the date and time in the following format:
YYYY-MM-DD hh:mm:ss(for example
2016-04-01 16:57:00). This is the format used by WordPress in
wp_poststable, so it’s easy to use this field value in custom meta queries. However the Advanced Custom Fields API returns the date and time in the format set in the field settings, so you can just use
get_field()function in your theme.
echo date('d/m/Y g:i a', strtotime(get_field('date_and_time_field')));
You can also use format_value filter to format the field value.
