#27364 closed Bug (invalid)

DATE_INPUT_FORMATS is not working

Reported by: Alex Owned by: nobody

Per the Django Docs, in if I set USE_L10N to false, I should be able to override the supported date formats. My has the following:



USE_I18N = False

USE_L10N = False

USE_TZ = False

    '%Y-%m-%d', '%m/%d/%Y', '%m/%d/%y', # '2006-10-25', '10/25/2006', '10/25/06'
    '%b %d %Y', '%b %d, %Y',            # 'Oct 25 2006', 'Oct 25, 2006'
    '%d %b %Y', '%d %b, %Y',            # '25 Oct 2006', '25 Oct, 2006'
    '%B %d %Y', '%B %d, %Y',            # 'October 25 2006', 'October 25, 2006'
    '%d %B %Y', '%d %B, %Y',            # '25 October 2006', '25 October, 2006'

I have a model that looks like the following:

class DateTest(models.Model):
    date = models.DateField(blank=True, null=True)

When I run the following command, i get an error:

>>> DateTest.objects.create(date='09/01/2016')

My understanding is that only form fields (rather than model fields) handle those formats (e.g. DateField).
