The Jalali calendar (also known as the Modern Iranian calendar or the Solar hijri calendar) is a solar calendar which is the official calendar in Iran and Afghanistan.

The calendar type system was introduced in 2.6, so this will not work in any Moodle versions earlier than this.

    Dear Majid,

    Please write here in English. Though you are welcome to write in Persian in the Persian community (

    well... The "internal server error" is a very general error message. Perhaps you could find a more specific error message in your web-server's log files.

    I found your plugin very helpful with moodle 2.6.
    Do you have any plan to update this plugin for moodle 2.7?

    Hi Mr Rezaie
    I'm using this calendar system on two versions of moodle (one 2.5.1+ using the old patch you released & one 2.9 with new plugin)
    I need all of moodle use the Jalali system but for one of my own written local plugins I need the Gregorian date but when the plugin is active both "date_selector" element and "userdate" function use the jalali system & I can't mak ethem to produce Gregorian date;
    How can I produce Gregorian date with "date_selector" element and "userdate" function when the Jalali calendar is active?

    Hello again
    I understood how to fix it but now I have another problem. When nobody has logged in to my site, every thing is english. I mean calendar is jalali but month's name and all menus are english. Once any body logs in, every thing turn to persian. What's the problem?

    Hi Ali,

    You need to "change" the calendar you want to use to the Persian calendar.
    You can change your site's default calendar in "Site administration ► Appearance ► Calendar"
    Also, site users can change it for themselves by editing their profile (Moodle 3.1 and below) or by going to their preferences page (Moodel 3.2)
