[EventCalendar] filter question

Hi David,

Hmm. EC uses WP's date_format option - you seem to want to change that value
depending upon the current language.

The best way would be to intercept the "pre_option_*" filter. It allows you to
 override the value of any option. So, here's my untested example...

  function davids_set_date($date_format)
    // Obviously your code would be more complicated here...
    return 'j F Y';


Let me know if it works.
