New hack LastModifiedMacro, created by HorsePunchKid

Last Modified Macro


Shows the last modification date of the specified page, or the page the macro appears in if not specified. An optional argument, delta , can be given to show the time elapsed since the last modification. The output is placed in span with a title that gives the exact modification date and the author of the change.

Basic usage:


For example, [[LastModified(CustomMacros)]] produces:

<span class="last-modified" title="Wed Oct  6 20:34:51 2004 by username">2004-10-06</span>

Alternatively, [[LastModified(CustomMacros,delta)]] produces:

<span class="last-modified" title="Wed Oct  6 20:34:51 2004 by username">7 weeks</span>

This is a CSS style to apply that will make it about 3.14% slicker:

span.last-modified { border-bottom: 1px dotted gray; cursor: help; }
