Piwik_Period_Day->toString() should support variable formats #1888

The toString() method is hard-coded to "Y-m-d" format. It should accept an override with a default parameter of Y-m-d for backwards compatibility.


mrisher: What's your use case?

btw if we change the method signature, this should be uniform across Period.php and Period/*.php.


Sorry, I had replied but received a bug.

I agree about changing the other Period/* files. This syntax matches that of Date.php so for consistency it seems worth adding.

The use case is, I have a downstream data provider that is being merged into a plugin, and it requires a specific date format with a different delimiter.

I can make the change and check in; should I attach Patch files here or do it in SVN?

Thank you,

please attach your patch, thanks


Period.php, Day.php, and Range.php have toString() methods, so I have updated those.
Week.php, Month.php, and Year.php do not have a toString() method, so I have not changed those in this fix.

(In [3755]) Fixes #1888
Note: Year Period is not toStringable - does it still solve your use case?
