What behaviour would you expect? Both 1980?


Eddie_V (reporter)

well atleast both the same ofcourse. I lowered them anyway since we use the date question alot for day of birth.

I think that the standard date question should hold a large range so both 1900 to start. Cause users dont think about the range, only when they want a date that is set in the future of in the last 10 years and then they will use the attributes.

Eddie, can you check if this patch for the Limesurvey 2.0 branch would solve the problem: ?!


Eddie_V (reporter)

Mazi, I think the two are unrelated. as I see it that patch works that the minyear is starting from january 1 and the max date ending at december 31. both comming from the array range. but if you have 2 seperate positions where you can fill the array, the difference is still in place.
