Component: Template system Version: master
Severity: major Keywords: translation date time i18n
Cc: Triage Stage: Unreviewed
Has patch: no Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: UI/UX:


The code:

{% load i18n %}

Spits out:

AttributeError at /category/xml/
'str' object has no attribute 'day'

Exception Type: 	AttributeError
Exception Value: 	'str' object has no attribute 'day'
Exception Location: 	C:\Dev\Python24\lib\site-packages\django\utils\ in d, line 114

Trace snip:


C:\Dev\Python24\lib\site-packages\django\utils\ in d

 107. = dt
 108. self.timezone = getattr(dt, 'tzinfo', None)
 109. if hasattr(, 'hour') and not self.timezone:
 110. self.timezone = LocalTimezone(dt)
 112. def d(self):
 113. "Day of the month, 2 digits with leading zeros; i.e. '01' to '31'"

 114. return '%02d' % #Here we get the error

 116. def D(self):
 117. "Day of the week, textual, 3 letters; e.g. 'Fri'"
 118. return WEEKDAYS[][0:3]
 120. def F(self):

I was able to reproduce the error with LANGUAGE_CODE set to 'sr', 'en' and 'de'.

That sounds as if your pub_date attribute is actually a string, not a datetime object. I have used the following test program and it runs successfully:

from django.core.template import Template, Context
from django.utils.translation import activate

import datetime

src = """
{% load i18n %}
{% blocktrans with pub_date|date:_("DATETIME_FORMAT") as date %}Published on {{ date }}{% endblocktrans %}

t = Template(src)
c = Context({'pub_date':})

print t.render(c)
print t.render(c)

This correctly produces the two lines:

Published on Nov. 23, 2005, 3:23 p.m.
Published on 23. Nov. 2005, 15:23

Please reopen if there really is a bug with the date formatting stuff.

Sry, seems I had a typo error deep in my code.
