We found an error with Matrix v2.5.10 and EE v2.5.0. Specifically the date field was throwing an error

Fatal error: Call to undefined method EE_Localize::format_date() in /chroot/home/giagingo/giaging.org/html/zIyzybo7i9Yn5T/expressionengine/third_party/matrix/celltypes/date.php on line 139

line 139 of date.php is

$data = $this->EE->localize->format_date($params['format'], $data);

Looking at older versions of date.php we tried changing line 139 to read

$data = $this->EE->localize->decode_date($params['format'], $data);

And it worked!

  • Glad you got it fixed. The localization class was changed pretty dramatically in 2.6, so it's likely that Matrix didn't retain backwards compatibility past that update. Feb 10, 2014 at 18:41
