The Date Format Helper adds a list of the PHP date format options on the
"Add date format" page. It eliminates the need to open a second browser window
to remember if 'm' is a textual or numeric repesentation of the current month,
or was 'm' minutes? Maybe that was 'M'? I can never remember.


  • Install this module using the official Backdrop CMS instructions at

  • Add a new date format under Administration > Configuration > Regional and
    language > Date and time formats > Add date format.

  • Enjoy the on-page docs and never look up a date formatting option again.
