I have installed the English version of MOSS 2007 which came with the English language pack by default (language ID: 1033).
Unfortunately, everytime I create a new site, either via the web interface or stsadm, the locale is always set to English US (lcid 1033), which is a problem for dates format, i.e. mm/dd/yy instead of dd/mm/yy.
How can I configure Sharepoint so that the locale of every new site is set to English UK (2057) by default?
The only available language pack for English (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=2447426b-8689-4768-bff0-cbb511599a45&displaylang=en) seems to be set for English US only.
I think what Jeff wanted was a way of setting that for every site that WILL be created in future, rather than setting it after the fact, which is easy enough but if you have hundreds of sites (i.e. MySites), being able to change the default would be good.
I share your pain Jeff and as soon as I find out how to do this, I'll get back to you.
Has anyone had any futher thoughts on this?
I have set, through the Admin Console, the web application to use English (United Kingdom) as the default locale, but site collections are still created using the English (US) locale.
It's not going to be in the site template is it? (I'm using the default ones, not ones I have created myself).
