Show last modification date of wiki page

Notice: This plugin is unmaintained and available for adoption.


This 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 a <span> with a title that gives the exact modification date and the author of the change.

This plugin retrieves information from the database and adds it to a wiki page. Currently supported keywords: author, version, changed_by, comment, changed_ts. See below for examples.

Basic usage:

[[LastModified(MacroBazaar, delta)]]

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 an underline and a tooltip:

    border-bottom: 1px dotted gray;
    cursor: help;

Building off the above style, the colour of the TocMacro can be matched further. To apply this to all projects, append the below text to file /usr/share/trac/htdocs/css/wiki.css:

/* Styles for the LastModified wikimacro */
    border-bottom: 1px dotted gray;
    border-top: 1px dotted gray;
    background: #FFFFDD;
    cursor: help;
