We need to export the date of orders into a CRM and it needs to be in the following format:


The current {order_date} is exported in unix format, is it easy to change this or is there any other way I can get around this?


Turns out it supports the format="" parameter as per ExpressionEngine's documentation:

{order_date format="%D, %F %d, %Y - %g:%i:%s"}

    Correct. EE actually handles the date formatting automatically (any number which looks like a unix timestamp can use the format="" parameter), so you can always do this with dates. Jan 15 '14 at 20:42
