Solved Date format 'less than a minute ago'?

Post by Ivo94 on January 16th 2014, 5:18 pm

I was wondering if it is possible to add a date format option titled 'less than a minute ago / 16 Jan 2014, 16:13' (titled like that on a non-Forumotion phpBB3 board). It's a great setting because it states '30 minutes ago', 'Today, 18:04' or 'Yesterday' or so on the Last Post bar on the homepage. Wink

So is there a code for this format? The other forum links to this page but I don't understand how to make a code for this so help would be appreciated!

No. Unfortunately, that is not possible on Forumotion. The thing is that you can't access the database of your forum, so the changes on the page you've linked can't be done. The Forumotion version phpBB3 and the phpBB3 by phpBB itself are two different things. The Forumotion one builts on the basic of the phpBB one, but has a lot of different changes to it. Therefore, phpBB3 on here is Forumotion-specific. ^^

Alright, thanks. I understand it's not possible via CSS, but can I suggest this change to the Forumotion team or will they also be unable to add the feature?

You can suggest your idea, sure. I would take some time for the feature to be added though.

I'm not sure whether it's possible to add this feature with JavaScript or not. At least I haven't seen a script doing that yet.
