Details from former Tiki versions

The former preference “Admin home > Calendar > Jscalendar” seems to have no effect on the trakcer field “Date and Time (Date Picker)”. In some previous Tiki versions, the Js Calendar setting added a visual selector of dates based on javascript (earlier than the Jquery date picker widget).

Date Only is currently only available in tikiwiki 1.9, the other two are available in tikiwik>=1.9
The options on Date & Time and Jscalendar types are only available in tikiwiki>= 1.10

Here is an example of the plugin tracker on a tracker using different comfiguration of these fields
