Chapter 10. Microsoft FrontPage Components > Using the Timestamp Component

Using the Timestamp Component

Marking your pages with the date and time of the last change or update shows visitors how "fresh" your content is. Unfortunately, it's easy to forget to adjust the date every time you make an edit to a page. The FrontPage Timestamp Component automates this process and places the date and time of the most current revision on the page whenever it is served.

To place a timestamp on your page

1.
Move the cursor to the position on the page where you want the timestamp to appear.

2.
Choose Insert, Timestamp to reveal the Timestamp Properties dialog box you see in Figure 10.8. Here you have the option of showing the date of the last edit or the last automatic update (other FrontPage Components enable you to automate content updates). You can choose from nearly 20 date formats and 8 time formats.

Figure 10.8. Automating the Last Updated date relieves you of an often-forgotten task.


3.
After you configure the timestamp to your liking, click OK to place it on your page.
