Short Date

The short date format (under storeadmin Administration tab > Site Settings > Short Date) to n/j/y format (which is the default format). Yours was set to Y-m-d format (using dashes instead of forward slashes to separate the month, day, year). I need to make this more clear.

The default short date format is what most people are accustom to: month / day / year

The n/j/y is an internal format which does not convey month / day /year, thus is confusing.

Note that in order to view orders in storeadmin, the format must used slashes (like 8/23/18), not dashes (like 8-23-18).

The short date is used in many places. They are listed below.
