Timeline: Early dates (BC) break the timeline
Closed, DeclinedPublic


Trying to display dates BC are breaking the timeline. This was not seen before, since the time type could not handle those days anyway, and now we see that there is a problem with them.

Version: unspecified
Severity: normal

I've commited a patch myself.

I've a private wiki for now, sorry:

The problem is that SMW BC dates are returned in a format like: '--356-08-29' and SIMILE expects something such as '-0356-08-29'
