mod_db8sitelastmodifiedThis module displays a global "last modified" date that informs the visitor when the last change was done to the site.

The Site Last Modified date and time are based on the creation and modification date and time of the articles in your site, and it takes into account the users access level and whether an article is published or not. It does not display any other changes, e.g. in Section/Category or Modules:

  • The date+time of changes in Section/Category descriptions are not stored in the Joomla tables.
  • The usage of the checked_out_time of User defined Modules wasn't implemented in this module.


Included language files:

  • English
  • Dutch
  • German
  • French
  • Spanish

PS: Corrections, particularly to the German, French and Spanish language files, are welcome!

Text before Date: Put here any text that should be displayed before the date.
Date/time format: Use PHP strftime parameters to format the date/time.
Text after Date: Put here any text that should be displayed after the date.
Note: HTML tags are allowed, so you can use <b> and </b> around your text to get bold characters.

Text before Date: This site was last <b>modified on:
Date/time format: %A %d %B %Y, %H:%M
Text after Date: </b>!!!
will display:
This site was last modified on: Saturday 16 August 2008, 18:30 !!!
