!Bug! Google.ru, searh tools - "custom range" of timed search - editing it again transforms date to american date format from european one, incorrecty Dmitriy Tverdov 12/29/12 11:32 AM
Just found an annoying bug (at least on google.ru) - when using search tools' custom time range if you decide to visit range choice menu again then date format will revert from european to american (dd.mm.yyyy to mm.dd.yyyy) by swapping numbers - so instead of 31.12.2002 (31st January 2002) you'll get 12.31.2002 (12th of 31th month) - and, if you do not swap numbers manually and just press "OK" then search engine decides that you're in error, it will default to "any time".

Additional confusion is from visual calendar  - it shows date based on american format , but in case of choosing new date it WILL NOT pass it to search engine correctly, ie will swap day and month too.

Sorry if my words are confusing - not native english speaker.

1) As Google search sent me  to "googlebugs" which in it's turn sent me here, where i've found no link to standartized form for bug report, so i've posted here. Any input how to do it properly?

2) I didn't changed date format recently (even don't know where to do so) and i didn't used "custom range" before.

3) typed words for search -> choosed date range -> clicked on shown range to edit it -> found that days and months are swapped -> choosed date from calendar (not typed it) -> found that search is wrong. IMO it is a problem.

Sent a report, checked that you're right and there is no such problem when google interface is set to russian. Thanks.


PS Unfortunatelly, i do need to switch interface back as one cannot suppress native language in search results.
