International or custom date formats (aka ISO 8601)

Question

I'm surprised that changing country in the region settings for a site keeps the default US date and time format. Are there any plans to add custom date formats or to adhere to the international ISO 8601 standard for date and time?

Not being able to use YYYY-MM-DD for dates or 24 hour time format without AM/PM is currently a no-go for transferring or creating Swedish sites to Squarespace.

Is there a hidden solution to this anywhere that I have missed?

There may be JavaScript solutions, it depends on which times and dates you are referring to. A working link to your website will help us understand the context.

I'm referring to any location where dates and/or time is presented. Blog posts, events etc. In short I would like to be able to set the global format for date and time for the whole site. Workarounds in JavaScript targeting individual templates doe not look very appealing. Not because I can't code, but because its...a workaround for something that is incomplete or broken.

I currently have a test site that is locked down to a colleague and myself, but I guess you get my point without a link.

There isn't anything we can do to make global changes unless you use the Developer Platform. It won't change anything quickly, but you can also reach out to Squarespace Customer Support team to officially submit this as a feature request. You can reach out to them here. They'll be sure to document and share it with the appropriate team.

Same problem here! After searching the forum it appears to me this has been an unresolved issue a long time for us international users. Seems to me this should be an easy fix?
