    And how can I set the time to UTC + 1?

    Hi Tobias,

    You can use the setting js_options to change the date format, such as

    'js_options' => [
        'dateFormat' => '',

    If you are using the Builder, please use the option Date picker options

    Hi Long

    Your documentation would be much better if you showed a lot more examples.
    for me as a beginner it is a torture ...

    And how can I set the locale?
    I want to display the days in German language.

    thank you for your help 😉

    To display the date in the German language, you need to follow these steps:
    - Set the site language in Admin dashboard > Settings > General > Site language: German
    - Set the timestamp to true
    - Use the function date_i18n() and follow the documentation to output the localization date.

    It might be complicated for the beginner but Meta Box is a developer tool, it helps you to output the raw value. So you need to have a basic knowledge of coding to display the value in any way you want.
