Feature Proposal: Need a variable that prints the date from the last-edit META field


On the intranet TWiki site I manage, one key document is a complilation document (by a series of INCLUDE directives) that pulls together the personal work agendas for the next week of a group of key users. It's often very useful to tell at a glance if any given user has, in fact, updated their agenda topic recently. Since the INCLUDEd file's meta data is not available, there's no way to see the last time it was edited unless the user remembers to add that in. It's in the nature of users that they won't do this.

Description and Documentation

What I need is a simple %LASTEDITTIME% variable at the bottom of each user's agenda page that shows the appropriately formated date info from the meta data. For that particular topic, of course not for the topic that INCLUDEds it.

WhatDoesItAffect: Rendering, Vars, Documentation


See %REVINFO{"format"}%.

AHA! Here it is under %REVINFO{"format"}%. Odd that I couldn't find it when I wanted it. Perhaps the documentation under the heading of META variables should have a pointer to the new REVINFO variable. As it is, the META variable discussion leads one to conclude that you can't access them at all, when it's clear (now) that several in fact can be accessed. Okay, mark this SolvedInAdvance.
