Inserting Dates

Contribute can insert the current date and time, in a variety of formats, into your Web page. You can choose whether or not to add the day of the week.

To insert the current date:

1.
Click in your draft to place the insertion point where you want to date to appear.

2.
Choose Insert > Date.

The Insert Date dialog appears (Figure 4.22).

Figure 4.22. Contribute lets you insert dates into your draft pages in a variety of formats.


3.
Do one or more of the following:

  • If you want the day to appear, use the “Day format” pop-up menu to set the appearance of the day of the week.

  • Make a selection from the “Date format” list.

  • If you want the time to appear, choose the 12-hour or 24-hour format from the “Time format” list.

  • Select the “Update automatically on save” check box, if you want that to happen. This is very useful if you want visitors to your site to know when the page was last updated.

4.
Click OK.

Contribute inserts the date (and possibly the time) into your draft page.
