Automatic update for relative date-time displays on Trac


The plugin avoids relative date-time displays, "42 seconds ago", even though the page was opened 42 years ago with automatic refresh.

This plugin works as follows:

  1. Modify SandBox page on your Trac.
  2. Visit SandBox page and look at "Last modified: ..." in the page for the moment!
