#23577 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Better Date Fields

I think the Dates should be prettified (i.e 2 days ago etc) and the last state put in front i.e ("Published 2 days ago" rather than "2 days ago Published")

As I think it would make it even more user friendly to used.

I have attached a Image showing what I mean.

#18641 has a patch for the order of the status and the date.

  • Component changed from General to Administration
  • Keywords dev-feedback removed

Currently, human-readable format is used for intervals up to 1 day:

Are you suggesting to display all dates in that format? I prefer to see the actual dates, so I'd call this plugin territory (post_date_column_time filter can be used to change the format).

and the last state put in front i.e ("Published 2 days ago" rather than "2 days ago Published")

That part is a duplicate of #18641.

Couldn't their be an option to set this ? Perhaps in the Screen Options ? Like a Dropdown that has the maximum Threshold.

  • Keywords close added; ui-feedback ux-feedback removed

Seems to me that the filter is the option. Choosing the threshold for relative time doesn't seem to be a common enough need to warrant an option in the UI.

Again, you'll want to focus on one thing per ticket, and please search for existing tickets first.
