Friendly Time
« on: March 05, 2005, 10:12:52 PM »
Link to Mod

Install this mod to make forum dates & times easier to understand:

  • Displays the current time in plain English. (Almost half past eight in the evening of March 5th, 2005)
  • Calculates fuzzy relative time for posts/PMs. (An hour ago or Saturday, last week)

See the mod in action at www.cszen.com

To install this mod (and many others): Download FriendlyTime1.1.zip. Click Admin, then click Package Manager, then Download New Packages. Under Upload a Package, click Browse and find the FriendlyTime1.1.zip. Then click Upload and follow the prompts.

Note: Only tested with SMF 1.0.2 - The modification should work in previous versions, but the installer might not. If you get any problems, please reply with your SMF/Friendly Time version numbers, and I'll try to fix the problems as soon as possible.

Also: This may not work in every locale and uses hard-coded English strings. However, modifying Friendly Time to work with other languages shouldn't be all that difficult. If I receive a translation for Friendly Time, I'll write the necessary localization code. Any code contributions welcome.

And something I forgot to mention in the "Readme": You must have Today & Yesterday enabled for this modification to work correctly. Don't worry - if you haven't disabled it, it's enabled. Otherwise instead of Sunday, last week you'll probably see something like Almost half past eight in the evening of February 20th, 2005 for every post - which is ridiculous.

My only concern with the Friendly Time mod in its current implementation is that I now realise the "last week" calculation is a little flawed. Well, it works - it just might not work the way people might expect it to. Because it uses PHP's date function, it thinks a week starts on Monday, when SMF's "First day of the week on the calendar" setting in every profile is probably set to Sunday.

Tip: If you want to make sure the relative time is correct, you can easily view the SMF default time format just by hovering your mouse over a relative time. (It will show up as a tooltip on any modern browser, like Firefox.)

Hey! Congrats on your mod. I had thought it'd be nice to have the option to use something like this in some forums. Liked it a bit at Flickr.com, although I'm not really used to it and it's a bit different, too. Instead of dates, I think it says x minutes/days/weeks/months ago without being too specific, which helps keeping the string short.

Can this friendly format be an option from profile? I haven't tried it, so sorry for asking if it is, I wouldn't think it nice to impose this on all the members. BTW, the first day of the week in SMF can be chosen by you (Sunday/Monday).

Thanks for the feedback! :D

You'd be surprised at how short, yet easy to understand, the dates are. I try to keep thing's "rough", not specific. So it says "Mid-March" instead of "10 pm on Tuesday, March 8th, 2005" - who really cares what day or time it was, if it's more than X away? Those types of things ...

The profile option is a good idea. It'd be quite easy to implement too. But at the same time, I haven't had any complaints on the forums I run about it, most people quite like it. However, I can understand if, for example, many of your forum's members don't understand English. Perhaps I should do a quick language check before I display the time in English automatically.

And I know you can pick the first day of the week in SMF (by default, and in people's profiles), that's why I said it was a problem if the week calculation automatically assumes that weeks start on Monday. I just don't know if it's a big enough deal to work out a way to adjust it based on the setting.

Thanks for the great comments :) I'm glad you all like it.

One plan I have is of making a whole series of "Friendly" mods to SMF, which are easy-to-install and improve some usability aspect for SMF. But then I realised that half of my mod ideas wouldn't sound right if they started with "Friendly". "Find-as-you-type Search" is better than "Friendly Search", eh? And "Friendly Creative Commons" doesn't sound right either. Oh well, I'll just keep the "Friendly" aspect in mind as I make the mods.

What version of SMF are you using? Do you know what software your web host uses? I've never had that happen to me yet.

If you don't have any other mods installed (or don't mind re-installing them) the easiest way to fix this is to download a fresh smf install zip (like smf_1-0-2_install.zip), and re-upload the Sources/Subs.php file.

Otherwise, you'll have to manually edit Sources/Subs.php ...

Open Sources/Subs.php and select the following:

Code: [Select]
    // Strip slashes off the time format string.
    $str = $user_info['time_format'];

    if (setlocale(LC_TIME, @$txt['lang_locale']))
    {
      $str = ereg_replace('%a', ucwords(strftime('%a', $time)), $str);
      $str = ereg_replace('%A', ucwords(strftime('%A', $time)), $str);
      $str = ereg_replace('%b', ucwords(strftime('%b', $time)), $str);
      $str = ereg_replace('%B', ucwords(strftime('%B', $time)), $str);
    }
    else
    {
      // Do-it-yourself time localization.  Fun.
      $str = ereg_replace('%a', @$days_short[(int) strftime('%w', $time)], $str);
      $str = ereg_replace('%A', @$days[(int) strftime('%w', $time)], $str);
      $str = ereg_replace('%b', @$months_short[(int) strftime('%m', $time)], $str);
      $str = ereg_replace('%B', @$months[(int) strftime('%m', $time)], $str);
      $str = ereg_replace('%p', (strftime('%H', $time) < 12 ? 'am' : 'pm'), $str);
    }

    // Format any other characters..
    $before = '<span title="'.strftime($str, $time).'" style="cursor:default">';
    $after = '</span>';

    // Setup some variables
    $then = @getdate($time);
    $now = @getdate($nowtime);
    $then['week'] = date("W",$time);
    $now['week'] = date("W",$nowtime);
    $fourWeeksAgo = date("W", strtotime("-4 weeks", $nowtime));
    $WeeksAgo = date("W", $nowtime-$time);
   
    // Are we more than four weeks ago?
    if ($WeeksAgo > $fourWeeksAgo || $then['year'] != $now['year'])
    {
      // First let's see if it's for a previous year.
      if ($then['year'] != $now['year'])
      {
        $lastYear = date("Y", strtotime("-1 year", $nowtime));
         
        // If last month, write "early last month" or "last month", otherwise it's "Late October, last year" or "Mid-October, 2003".

Sorry it didn't work out for you. Please answer the questions I asked at the beginning of this post, to help make this mod better. Thanks for trying Friendly Time.

Hey man i see to reply to this thread, look at this url:

http://mods.simplemachines.org/index.php?mod=107

Note: Only tested with SMF 1.0.2 - The modification should work in previous versions, but the installer might not. If you get any problems, please reply with your SMF/Spam-me-not version numbers, and I'll try to fix the problems as soon as possible.

OK, well continue this discussion in that topic, OK?

Hi Louis

This is a very cool mod, and something similar I recently asked for, but didn't see your mod before

The time is certainly now more friendly.

I was wondering though, if it possible to alter things, and make it even more simpler.

Sorry, I know it sounds presumptious asking for a way of changing things, but thought you maybe interested anyway to make it even more friendlier  :)

The thinking is that anything relative to the date of viewing, shoud be kept simple as possible


So here goes - instead of displaying:

yesterday afternoon at 2 o'clock -> yesterday, 2pm

tuesday night -> 2 days ago

early last month -> last month

early last March -> March, 2005

Maybe the mod could be developed further, so it gives various options/formats how the dates could be displayed.

BTW, I haven't installed it yet, is there a way of disabling the display of how long it took to compose the message?

best regards
rhizome

Where would I go to change the text?  for instance, I want to change it from saying "Three weeks ago" to "three weeks ago"

Just the casing on some of it... so I don't see "Last post Three weeks ago".  I would rather see "Last post three weeks ago"

Search for that text in Modifications.[language].php.

 // else ... Two weeks ago, Three weeks ago, or even Four weeks ago (all without day)
      return $before . (($then['week'] == $twoWeeksAgo) ? 'Two weeks ago' : (($then['week'] == $threeWeeksAgo) ? 'Three weeks ago' : 'Four weeks ago')) . $after;
    }


this mod just made a change in Subs.php, so just edit the file and you will find it ... :P

hi,
I'm translating this to Spanish  but I have some problems, for example:
" // 20, 30, 40, 50 ... minutes ago.
      $roundedToTen = round($minutesAgo,-1);
      return $before . $roundedToTen . ' minutes ago' . $after;"

in Spanish is not "X minutes ago" = "Hace X minutos"
how do I reverse the phrase correctly?. I did and I got a parse error, I supose I put the '' in the wrong place.
Many thanks.
Carla
