 DateTime::__construct(): Failed to parse time string (6-21-2018) at position 0 (6): Unexpected character


122 $excepdate32=DateTime::createFromFormat('d-m-Y', $params->get('ExcepDate32'));

123 if($excepdate32 != false) { $excepdate32=$excepdate32->format($params->get('Dateformat'));}


125 // Change dates to Ymd for Exceptional

126 if (($excepdate11) != '') {;

127 $excepdate1begin = new DateTime($excepdate11);

128 $excepdate1begin = $excepdate1begin->format('gA');

129 $excepdate1end = new DateTime($excepdate12);

130 $excepdate1end = $excepdate1end->format('gA');

in the backend: You need to specify your hours using 24:00 time. For example, 3pm is specified as 15:00
Use a '-' to separate open and closing hours.

And Always use dateformat: DD-MM-YYYY in the exceptional opening days.
