Correcting the date format in the new catalogue

Being an international product, our new catalogue software takes its language from the browser program you are using. eg. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, etc.  This includes the way the date is displayed. As most browsers come preloaded with English (US), the date will be showing in the American order of mm/dd/yyyy.

To change it on your browser and force it to display the date in the Australian style of dd/mm/yyyy, you need to change the language to English(Aus) or English (UK).  Below are instructions on how to do so in the most popular browsers. If your browser is not listed there and you need help, please use our Ask a Question form and we will find how to resolve it for your browser.
