[Koha] Can't specify due date/renewal due date in 16.05

Thank you! That didn't solve my problem exactly, but it did give me a workaround. I changed dateFormat to mm/dd/yyyy and now I can set the date. We were using yyyy-mm-dd before and I'm not sure why that doesn't work now, but the important thing is that we can set the due date again. The most popular item in our library is a test book that we make due the day after the exam, so being unable to set the date was a big problem.

Maybe next week I'll work on just why yyyy-mm-dd doesn't work, but it's not as urgent now.

Have a great weekend everybody,

Excerpts from King, Fred's message of 2016-11-18 09:43:33 -0500:
> Yesterday I upgraded Koha from 3.20 to 16.05, on Ubuntu 14.04LTS. Now we can't specify a due date for either checkouts or renewals. When we use the calendar to click on a date nothing happens; when we try to put in a date using the format 2016-12-30 I get an error message "Please enter a valid date (should match yyyy-mm-dd)." SpecifyDueDate is set to Allow.
> Any ideas? I've run out of them here.
