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.

    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)

    I found my answer . the profilefield_datetime plugin uses min and max date based on Gregorian calendar . I fixed my problem by convert to Gregorian date before processing date :

    In profilefield_datetime and in field.class.php and in "edit_save_data_preprocess" method I replaced This line :

    $datetime = userdate($datetime, '%Y-%m-%d-%H-%M-%S');


    $datetime = date('Y-m-d-H-m-s', $datetime);

    I installed this calendar on Moodle 3.5 recently. Today I started using Moodle and I tried to enroll some students in a class with enrollment start and end times. After I saved the times, I found that they are reset to 1 Farvardin 1278.
    To solve the problem, I changed my calendar preference to Georgian, and revised the dates. It was correct.
    Again I changed the calendar to Persian. The enrollment dates were correct. I clicked on the save button without any changes. The dates again reset to 1 Farvardin 1278.
    Please help.
