    So have I. But this has nothing to do with JA Bulletin or Joomlart at all; it seems to be due to a “limitation” in Unix time, which is widely used in computer systems and counts the seconds elapsed since 1 January 1970 at midnight.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unix_time

    As I understand it, a date based on this system set earlier than 01.01.1970 would give a negative number. This is impossible, so instead it defaults to 30 November 1999.

    Which does not explain, as in my case, a couple of articles written weeks apart in the Summer of 2010 seem to have been published 30.11.1999

    You will find lots of discussions on this if you search for variants of the November 99 date over at the joomla.org web site. Here is one answer given two years ago to a complaint regarding the Beez template:

    Sorry, you are correct.
    If an article is written new, the modified fate is set to ‘0000-00-00 00:00:00’.
    Beez checks this field if empty or not.
    Now, it is not empty, and the date parameter tries to format the date with ‘DATE_FORMAT_LC2’.

    0000-00-00 00:00:00 will result in what you see.

    If the check in the default.php will be corrected, it will not show this date anymore.
    Therefore, it is a bug – correct.

    but, how to fix it now?

    A strange one indeed!

    It seems JA_Bulletin checks the modified date then the created date and uses the created date. HOWEVER… if the article has never been modified then the modified date will be 0000-00-00 00:00:00. (ie. empty). This causes the Joomla/UNIX bug to kick in where it reads the date format wrong and inserts the default date of 30th November 1999.

    To use the created date, regardless of whether the article has been modified or not open /modules/mod_jabulletin/help.php and find (line varies depending on which version of JA Bulletin you are using but should be aroune line 140-150)…

    [PHP]$lists [$i]->date = strtotime ( $row->modified ) ? $row->created : $row->modified;[/PHP]and change to…

    [PHP]$lists [$i]->date = strtotime ( $row->created ) ? $row->created : $row->modified;[/PHP]Yes, I’m no PHP guru so I’m sure the new line above does not actually make sense to those in the know but what the heck… it works :p

    Just to add some feedback on this issue.
    This happens when you synchronize articles between two databases.
    In my case i sync articles on the jos_content table of a teline II db with the jos_content table on a teline IV db.

    I get the same issue.
    Is there definitely a solution?
    Unplublish/publish works but it isn’t a real solution…
    Please, help 🙂

    ok, changing the line PHP works for me, but in Jabullettin 1.0.4 I’ve this original line (243)
    $lists [$i]->date = strtotime ( $row->modified ) ? $row->modified : $row->created ;

    I wonder if there is a new version of JA Bullettin for Joomla 1.5.x with the fix, TIA!

    Hi salvomic ,

    Joomla 1.5 reaches the end of life and Joomla stops to support this version. Hence, I’m afraid that there is no new version of this module for Joomla 1.5.

    If you have any problem, feel free to raise your question, we will try to help.
