We load data from our supplier about the date when new stock will arrive. The date is loaded like: 07-12-2016, which is 12 July 2016 and not 7 December 2016.
I use following code to load the date:
<p class="availability out-of-stock"><?php $today = Mage::helper('core')->htmlEscape($_product->getData('delivery_eta')); $date = Mage::helper('core')->formatDate($today, Mage_Core_Model_Locale::FORMAT_TYPE_FULL, false); echo $date;?></p>
But this is displayed as 7 December 2016. How can I change this, so that the date is loaded correctly like 12 July 2016?
