For a calendar date in ISO 8601 extended format in the form YYYY-MM-DD (e.g. "2014-11-29"), with or without time, this template extracts the year, month, day and time, and calls {{date}} with the year, month and day found to display the date in localised format, with the time, if specified, appended. It provides the convenience of passing on a date (or even a date and a time) from one template to another as a single parameter, even though {{date}} eventually needs the date components separately.

This template overcomes some flaws of the automatic conversion by {{#time: }} for non-full dates (e.g. "77-09" for September 77 AD, which would throw an error with {{#time: }}).

Usage

{{ISOdate |1= }}
