Lister Native Date Format

Allows the date format for "created", "modified" and "published" columns to be set within a Lister or Lister Pro instance.

Lister Native Date Format

Why?

Lister formats the "created", "modified" and "published" columns as relative time strings and doesn't provide an easy way to change this without writing code. Sometimes a value like "3 weeks ago" is not precise enough and you want to see an exact date/time in these columns, perhaps only temporarily before switching back to a relative date.

Details

An icon is added near the top right of the Lister that reveals a dropdown where you can select from a list date formats that you define in the module config.

The Lister will remember your chosen date format the next time you visit the Lister. If you have Lister Pro installed then each Lister Pro instance will remember the date format previously set for that instance.

Configuration

In the "Date options" field in the module config, enter a list of date formats that are compatible with wireDate(), one format per line.

The default date format used by Lister is "rel".

Date options

You can also set a default date format for native fields which will apply to all Listers that haven't yet had a date format chosen from the dropdown.

Now I am going to be annoying and ask if it would be difficult to set a default format. Maybe by setting the default as the first option entered in the Date Options config setting?

I added a config field for this in v0.1.1. Let me know if this wasn't what you were getting at.

Hi Robin,

It's only a minor thing, but I just noticed this when clicking the show when using InputfieldSelector. Note the position of the calendar icon on top of the page numbers.

matches 1716 pages (show)
