Date on Modification List?
« on: January 09, 2017, 08:27:42 PM »
I would like to see the date I installed a mod on the list of Modifications installed.  Would that be possible?

Look in /Packages/backups.  Package manager creates a forum backup when it installs a mod, and the file date tells you when it was installed.

Look in your forum root directory with host file manager or ftp client.

I fully agree!  This should be a part of the basic program.  I really, REALLY like it!! :)

in SMF 2.1 the date/time that a mod was installed shows up in the listing of mods installed.

And the person that wrote the mod was the person who put it into 2.1 if I remember correctly... ;)
To assume is to hope that those who came before had the presence of mind and capacity to implement the dreams of those who would come after.

Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

Are you saying that it's already a part of SMF?

It is part of SMF 2.1, yes, but not the current stable version 2.0.x.

OH, okay.  I guess that's why I don't have it.  My version is 2.0.13.   I didn't know there was a 2.1 available.  Anyway, it's a great thing to have!   :)

Just to be clear, 2.1 is not yet available for a live site, it's still in beta.  You're welcome to install it and play around with it on a local host/test forum if you wish to see it in action, but please do not install it on a live forum.

A new version coming down!  That sounds great!  As much as I would like to install and play with it, I have too many spoons in the kettle at the time.  I'll wait for it to be announced.   Thanks for clarifying that.  I try and keep up with the latest versions which is pretty easy since the program tells me when it needs to be updated. 

I have been using SMF for 9 years and I love it!  Looking forward to the next version. Thanks!!!
